Interview: Paul Carr


Musician, saxophonist, educator and Artistic Director of the Mid Atlantic Jazz Festival Paul Carr has always been an inspiration for me and countless others.

If he were just a jazz musician, he'd be on top of his game. But somewhere along the line, he defined himself as more than just a great player. He became a great educator, a great organizer and more. Here are some fabulous details that come out of our conversation:

  1. Organic Growth - running a jazz camp developed out of his love for teaching students

  2. Obstacles Create Opportunities - having trouble getting signed to a label? No problem! release your recordings independently!

  3. If you have an idea, try it out! Nobody dies if it doesn't work! (hopefully?...)

  4. The ideas from others can fuel your dreams
