Paul Carr: Straight Ahead Soul

Read "Straight Ahead Soul" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

If saxophonist Paul Carr could be described in a single word, it would be durable. Carr's two previous recordings--Just Noodlin' (PCJE, 2008) and Musically Yours (PCJE, 2006)--displayed a dependable adherence to the Ray Charles' principles of rhythm and blues. His tone and attack are made of the same precious metal as that of Hank Crawford and ...

Due qualità esercitate al meglio in questo omaggio a Joe Henderson, pervaso da una trascinante vis hardboppistica.

Paul Carr: Musically Yours

Read "Musically Yours" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Houston's tenor saxophonist Paul Carr has provided, within a short recording career span, a number of intriguing and solid appearances. On his debut, Just Noodlin' (Jazz Karma, 2006), Carr provides a soulful and robust tenor sax in the style of Hank Mobley without seeking any deliberate comparisons.

Paul Carr: Musically Yours: Remembering Joe Henderson

Read "Musically Yours: Remembering Joe Henderson" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Listening to the music of tenor saxophonist Paul Carr, one recognizes that he has completely imbued the music of the late Joe Henderson, to whom he pays tribute on Musically Yours: Remembering Joe Henderson.

Remembering one of the great tenor masters of jazz, saxophonist and educator Paul Carr pays homage to the late Joe Henderson by offering an artful session of hard-driving bop with his third album as a leader on Musically Yours. He borrows the title from Henderson, who once autographed an album that Carr brought with him to ...

The Pierce College Jazz Ensemble: The Weekly Dance / Pierced Ears

Read "The Weekly Dance / Pierced Ears" reviewed by Jack Bowers

I first heard the Pierce College Jazz Ensemble at the IAJE Conference in Long Beach, CA, in January 2001 and was quite impressed, enough so to ask director Norm Wallen to keep me in mind for reviews if the ensemble were to record any CDs. After sending a master of the band’s performance at the conference, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
