Andrew Carroll celebrates debut album with concert at Jazz Central

Syracuse NY – In celebration of the national release of his debut album, pianist Andrew Carroll will present a jazz trio concert with special guests on Friday May 24th, at 8 p.m. in the Jazz Central theater. Admission is $20 and includes an album CD or download card.

Titled “Alliterations,” Carroll’s maiden effort has been featured in Jazz Times magazine and other highly acclaimed publications. Joining Carroll’s trio will be Greg Evans on drums and Danny Ziemann on bass.  Other surprise special guests will perform.

“Although he is an acclaimed musician now, both locally and on the New York City scene, we can’t forget that he is one of our most distinguished talents, a product of many of our training programs,” said Larry Luttinger, Executive Director of CNY Jazz. “And, not only is he a former piano student of Rick Montalbano and the great Shelly Berg, but he is a great jazz composer and arranger. It will be a treat hearing him, along with another CNY Jazz alumnus-made-good Greg Evans, now teaching at Ithaca College. We’re rolling the red carpet out for Andrew and urge the musical community to come support his new national release.”

Carroll has already amassed a long list of credits to date that belies his youth. He has shared stages with many of the greats in the music industry, including Burt Bacharach, Steve Miller, for whom he has performed and arranged, Jane Monheit, Elliot Mason, and Peter Eldridge. He has appeared on the David Letterman Show with the GRAMMY Jazz Ensemble. He has received the 2005 Downbeat Student Music Award for Instrumental Soloist, the Outstanding Piano Soloist Award from the Essentially Ellington Competition, two IAJE Outstanding Musician Awards and Scholarships, and an Honorable Mention and Merit Award in Jazz Keyboard from the ARTs Recognition and Talent Search (ARTS), a program of NFAA. He is a Thornton School of Music Burt Bacharach Scholar.
