Paul Carr's Just Noodlin' Climbs the chart on Jazzweek and lands at #32

One of the finest horn players in the DC metropolitan area, saxophonist Paul Carr is breaking through the sea of releases as he climbs the chart at Jazzweek and lands at the #32 spot for the week of March 23, 2007. This is Carr's first promoted CD to radio, and with enthusiastic support he debuted on the 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.)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
