The Carter Trio is one of the gifted young jazz acts in the Washington, D.C. area. The band of brothers consists of Roland Carter, on piano; Rashaan Carter, on bass; and Russell Carter, on drums. Roland Carter is a fifteen year old bop pianist who cites Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, and Red Garland as his top influences. Rashaan Carter is a seventeen year who has played with Gary Thomas, Webster Young, and in concert along side Chris Potter. He cites Paul Chambers, Ray Brown, Dave Holland, and Ron Carter as his influences. Russell Carter is twenty years old and currently attends Howard University as a jazz studies major and drummer and percussionist in their jazz band. He cites Tony Williams, Max Roach, and Jeff 'Tain' Watts as his main influences. We sincerely hope you do enjoy. Thank you!
We are three brothers who have a mother who loves jazz and a father that is a jazz saxophonist (we also have a quartet). Naturally we were going to pick up jazz.
We play in clubs all around Washington, D.C. and the East Coast Jazz Festival.
All jazz. Whether it is from 1945 or 1995.
