MUSICIAN Born:

Ian Carey

Ian Carey is a trumpeter, composer, arranger, bandleader and instructor, who “asks deep musical questions and comes up with compelling answers” (Bill Kirchner, editor, The Oxford Companion to Jazz). Born in 1974 in Binghamton, New York, Carey grew up in a house suffused with music and art. Ian’s first musical outlet was singing in a church choir, where his exposure to a brass quintet turned his eye to the trumpet. He started on cornet and French horn in elementary school, but switched back to trumpet for good in high school after his family relocated to Folsom, California (site of a now-famous high school jazz program)

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
