Almost two years after his untimely death, Carter Albrecht's CD, Jesus Is Alive... and Living in London, will get a proper release party tonight at Granada. Salim Nourallah, Chris Holt, Sarah Jaffe, and the members of Sorta will be among those who will be breathing life into Carter's songs. Doors will open at 7, and the music should begin at 8. This is certain to be an evening of beautiful music and intense emotion.
By the way, I'm working on a piece for Lakewood Now about the CD release party, and I'll provide the link for it once published. In the meantime, I leave you with a video montage of Carter set to Sparrows' "Rock and Roll Days". Like many of his songs, "Rock and Roll Days" seems to take on an extra special meaning since Carter's passing.
