Summer is winding down and fall is almost here! There are a lot of exciting upcoming projects, shows and events!
The Bryan Carter/Joe Saylor Jazz Band will be opening the "Generations of Jazz Festival" at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in Jazz At Lincoln Center on September 10th, 2013 at 7:30 and 9:30pm. The band will feature an intergenerational ensemble with Jery Weldon, Neal Caine, Benny Bennack, Chris Patishall and of course Joe Saylor and Bryan Carter on drums and multi-percussion!

I'll be performing with The Charlie Rosen Big-Band on September 19th at 54 Below with broadway stars Daniel Breaker, Arianna Debose and Nick Blaemire. The next day I'll spend a day in residency with the Berkeley Carroll School in Brooklyn, NY.
The last week of September I head to Calgary, Alberta in Canada for a week long residency with my father Ronald Carter. It's the best way to spend quality father/son time!
October brings a ton of exciting projects including a recording with Juilliard graduate Jonathan Estabrooks, a few performances for the CBBG festival with Austrailian artist HeyMun, a tour with two-time Emmy winner Michael Feinstein and a tour with Grammy Winner Kurt Elling!
I recently visited the Vic Firth offices. They're celebrating 50 years and working on a ton of new products. You can see all the excitement at http://vicfirth.com
Be Blessed & Stay Enchanted!
