Overview

One of the most promising jazz composers and keyboardists, James Carney moved from Los Angeles to New York in November 2004. Since that time he has increased his visibility and played with many top local musicians, including the six on this CD. While there are moments in Carney's music where one is reminded a little of the inside/outside music of Keith Jarrett's 1970s American quintet, most of Carney's writing is more advanced and quite unpredictable, following a logic of its own. Each of the horn players has his moments in the spotlight but the complex ensembles, the impressionistic themes, and Carney's versatile work on piano and electric keyboards make Green-Wood particularly special. Thus far, all of James Carney's recordings are high-quality examples of modern creative jazz.
