Stellar by starlight...

"This album is a quiet major event. One of the best, most technically adept and most musical trumpet players to hit the scene in years. And yet, as so often happens, the truth somewhat different: he's been working and refining for decades. And he sounds like it. Nothing tentative, no show-boating -- just wonderful stories told by a masterful player. And one of the finest trumpet sounds you'll ever hear this side of Clifford Brown. Bravo, Carl."
It's about time!!!

"Carl has always played with an effortless fluent sound. Ideas seem to flow endlessly and accurately. This is my newest favorite album. Everyone I have played the album for is amazed at his agility and flexibility. What they don't know is that Carl has been playing this way for more than thirty years. His knowlege of changes and ability to get around the horn has always been phenominal and he has improved with age. "Minute Waltz" is a great feat to pull off and he does it with such ease as to make your head spin. The personnel on the album is outstanding. It's good to hear Roger and Santo together, and Buster is as solid as any bassist around."
You won't believe your ears

"Out of the Blue was recommended to me by another trumpet player, shortly after it was released. My friend had played with Carl in Las Vegas for several years in the early 1980s and always thought he (Carl) was seriously undiscovered.When I first heard the CD, I was blown away by Carl's sound and technique. He is blessed with the ability to play anything he hears in his head--something most trumpet players simply cannot do. And, after more listenings, I found that, not only can Carl play what he hears, but he hears some really great stuff.I can't recommend this CD highly enough. Unlike other technically proficient players, Carl uses his abilities to play beautiful music. In fact, if you're not a trumpet player, you'll probably be unaware that what he's doing is impossible. And, after all, isn't that the point of music making?"
