Event Details

We are delighted to welcome virtuoso pianist Robert Carter for his first appearance at CAJ. Robert studied with the great Russian teacher Tamara Osborn, herself a pupil of Artur Schnabel. Robert’s approach to jazz developed in parallel with his classical studies, and since the eighties he has worked as a pianist on the contemporary jazz scene in the UK.

Over the years Robert has performed in many different settings: past jazz projects include a long-standing duo with the saxophonist Andy Panayi, ‘free improv.’ work with drummer Ken Hyder, composing collaborations with Lammas guitarist Don Paterson, with whom he worked in the band River Crossing. In 1987 he formed the popular fusion band The Breeze with Tim Garland, Richard Edwards, Shanti Jayasinha and Marc Parnell.

He has released several albums featuring compositions for trio, quintet and solo piano.

Robert’s influences are wide-ranging … among them are Olivier Messiaen, Robert Schumman, South African township music, Glenn Gould, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor
with Jeremy Shoham: sax • Neville Malcolm: bass • Davide Giovannini: drums
