@EastTown Association Presents:
Pete Carney & Ghost Farm
Thursday July 19, 2012
Happy hour starts at 5pm
Music starts at 6pm
Pete Carney welds diverse styles and foreign elements together in his music, creating a new urban sound that extends the traditional perception of Jazz. As a hybrid jazz artist, Pete Carney brings a young generation into Jazz by incorporating new beats from Hip Hop, House, and Nu Soul in the DJ generation. Using urban grooves and a Coltrane philosophy, GHOST FARM welcomes a dance floor generation that is often unplugged from Jazz.
Recently Pete recorded with the Plain White T's for a new Disney movie, Adventureland. Carney got his first break at a session in Memphis when Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Little Milton heard him and hired him to go on the road. Little Milton said later "Pete's the best sax player I've had in my band since David Sanborn left 30 years ago." Since then, Pete has gone on to play with the New World Symphony, Tito Puente, Louie Bellson, Tyrone Davis, Ko Ko Taylor, Arturo Sandoval, and directed the horn section for Grammy winner Kirk Franklin.
