Presbybop Music is a musical venture of Bill Carter, jazz pianist and Presbyterian minister.

”Bill Carter is a great piano player. I think his music is wonderful, and I highly recommend his recordings.” - Dave Brubeck

The Rev. Bill Carter and his jazz band, named after both of his vocations, answer that musical question. Not only does the Presbybop Quartet sound like Brubeck's classic 1950s group, the famous jazz pianist is a fan of this current aggregation. - Charlie Ricci - www.rambles.net

“Now we applaud the efforts of Presbyterian pastor and jazz pianist Bill Carter. All the gifts of jazz are here: imagination, improvisation, freedom, rhythm, and collaboration. Spiritual gifts indeed!” - Jeff Kellam - Presbyterians Today

“What Bill Carter and the Presbybop Quartet have done with some classically religious pieces is just wonderful. It opens new ways of hearing old -- and favorite -- and powerful pieces. And adds some new things, too! For me, it continually expands my mind and soul.” - Art Sundstrom, Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church
