During their successful tour through the Netherlands and Surinam, November and December 2009, De Nazaten and James Carter made a stop at the Fattoria studio in Osnabrück, Germany, just across the border. They had asked flute player Ronald Snijders and trombonist Joost Buis to make compositions for the tour. So Ronald Snijders wrote the Carter kaseko, specially for James Carter. It turns out to be a swinging party, with text and vocals of skratyi player Chris Semmoh. Joost Buis composed For now, a beautiful composition brought to life by the improvisations of Patrick Votrian and James Carter. In Amerindian connection guitar player Robby Alberga tells the story of the native Americans and with Pasportica Allochtonica he delivers a comment in this time of xenophobia, closed borders en fuss about ‘double passports’. Klaas Hekman made When Copy meets Bu, an hommage to the first snaredrum player of De Nazaten, Franklin ‘Copy’ Ardin and his big inspiration Art ‘Bu(hemia)’ Blakey. It includes solos for Gregory Kranenburg and Chris Semmoh on snaredrums. Polderprut refers to a running match, right across fields and ditches in the province of North-Holland. Still it is based on Brazilian maracatu and Surinam kaseko.

De Nazaten & James Carter: For Now (2009 [2011], Strotbrock): The Offspring, formerly of libertine Prince Hendrik, a mixture of Dutch and Surinamese musicians, have been around since 1995 -- I had the Dutch muddled in my memory and started to refer to them as the Bastards, which they probably wouldn't find offensive. The apinti drum and skratyi are not just exotic; they make for fine party instruments, accenting the comic potential of a group that already had sousaphone and bass sax before teaming up with a world class baritone saxophonist. Back cover shows them all hopping, with no one getting a bigger kick than Carter. A-

DE VOLKSKRANT: 4/5 stars

Live spelen is hetmooiste, volgens het Nederlands-Surinaamse blaasorkest De Nazaten,maar toch zijn ze trots op deze studioplaat, opgenomenmet James Carter als gast op baritonsax. En hoewel de uitbundige sfeer van hun concerten ontbreekt, heeft de uitstekende geluidskwaliteit het voordeel dat je alle nuances van de complexe orkestraties hoort: het rijke fundament gelegd door de sousafoon en bassaxofoon, de kwinkelerende fluiten, de interactie tussen de slagwerkers. De composities van Klaas Hekman zijn hetmeest gedurfd en gevarieerd, maar ook die van buiten de band, door Joost Buis en Ronald Snijders, combineren de stuiterende ritmes van kaseko en kawinametmemorabele thema’s en doorwerkingen. Snijders’ Carter Kaseko geeft het Amerikaanse saxmonster de kans omweer lekker wild te stunten. Het meest bijzondere nummer is Amerindian Connection van gitarist Robby Alberga, inderdaad gebaseerd op indiaansemuziek, een sfeerstuk dat na abstract collectief loosgaan weer oplost in rust.
