About Brian McCarthy

An accomplished performer and formidable composer and arranger, this saxophonist is emerging as a prominent example of the modern day instrumentalist. Seven Days called him “…a staple of the New England jazz scene." Jazz trumpet marvel, Ray Vega, called him plainly, “one of the most important jazz musicians to the Vermont scene," a sentiment echoed by mentor and saxophone guru Dr. David Demsey, coordinator of the renowned jazz program at William Paterson University, McCarthy's alma mater, who added, “Brian showed when he was a student and my grad assistant here that he could hang with the best young players in the country, and he has gone on, as expected, to become a major force and fixture on the New England music scene, as a player and as a teacher."

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.
