You could safely describe 'Carrier' as the guitar album of a drummer. Xavier Lecouturier delivers only five of the ten compositions while his guitarist takes care of three. Bassist ( Ben Feldman ) and pianist ( Gus Carns ) each also wrote a song. A generous group leader who rather plays the role of game distributor and gives his fellow musicians a lot of room. Lucas Winter uses a guitar style in the line of Larry Coryell and Kurt Rosenwinkel. He also apparently listened well to Philip Catherine (seventies). Finally also a saxophonist ( Santosh Sharma) that correctly integrates the EWI. Eventually we hear contemporary nervous jazz with a slight glance back towards fusion ('Kindling', 'Guitar Hero'), all brought by a very close-knit group.
