Anyone else heard of this guy (jazz pianist)?

 

I've just recently got his 'Civil War Diaries' solo piano album, and I think he's bloody brilliant.

 

Nobody else has seemed to have heard of him, at all, anywhere. Which is a terrible shame.

i got one cd of his playin' with drummer Billy Stewart, i think they have a regular duet piano-drums. His playin' is fantastic and very interesting, far from the regular piano trio approach-he's more percussive and his harmonies are more tense IMO. I think he's form minessota and he's to old american music (pre revolution).

It is an awful pity really, I'm a huge fan of how he plays.

As my fav pianists go its Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and then Bill Carrothers.

 

I've emailed him a few times, he's a really funny guy, and he's given me a lot of good advice (as a fellow pianist).

 

There's a transcript of a lesson he gave on his website, says a lot of insightful things, check it out: http://www.carrothers.com/pianolesson.htm
