Paul Carr CD Debuts on JazzWeek At #38


Sign in to view read count
One of the finest horn players in the DC metropolitan area, saxophonist Paul Carr is breaking through the sea of releases as his album Just Noodlin' debuts on the Jazzweek chart at #38 for the week of March 19, 2007. He can also be found at #3 on the Earshot Jazz Chart (Canada), #25 CMJ Jazz Chart, Issue #997, and #20 at Roots Music Report.

Just Noodlin' strives for the soulfulness and intensity that Carr's bands get on stage. Composed of all complete takes without overdubs, Carr says “I wanted a live feel to try to approximate the sound that we get live on a club date."

In addition to trumpeter Terell Stafford, pianist Andrew Adair (formerly of Donald Harrison's band), bassist Gavin Fallow, and drummer Steve Williams (25-year-long accompanist to Shirley Horn) make up the core of the group. Other tracks feature pianists Bob Butta and Vince Evans, bassist Michael Bowie (who has served as musical director for Abbey Lincoln), percussionist Sam Turner, and drummer Harold Summey (1st prizewinner of the first Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition for drum-set.)
