Doug Carn

Primary Instrument: Keyboard

Born: July 14, 1948    

Doug Carn

Destined from birth to become a part of the world of music, was born in New York City and raised in St. Augustine, Florida, where his mother, Gwendolyn Seniors Carn, taught music in the St. Johns County Public School System. Her unique and special teaching abilities provided a fertile ground for his future development.

Doug started piano lessons at the age of five but switched to the alto sax at eight. His uncle, Bill Seniors, a jazz aficionado and DJ, turned Doug on to all of the jazz of the late forties and early fifties. He was also a key figure in Doug's musical development.

In his early teens, Doug formed his first group, The NuTones. They played a variety of Jazz R&B and Rock 'n Roll hits for dances, proms and club dates all over Florida and southeast Georgia. In addition, he held down a post as organist for the A.M.E. church in its 11th Episcopal District....

Perhaps the hardest to find of the Doug Carn LPs on Black Jazz -- and a real killer all the way through! The album's a motherlode of righteous jazzy soul -- power-driven by Doug on organ, and peppered wonderfully with vocals by then-wife Jean Carn -- singing in a totally different mode than on her later Philly Soul recordings. The rest of the group includes some great work from Olu Dara on trumpet and Rene McLean on alto -- and the album includes Doug's great reading of “Naima”, plus the cuts “Power & Glory”, “Feel Free”, “Jihad”, “Fatherhood”, and “God is One”. © 1996-2008, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

First time reissue on CD&LP, the lost album of Doug Carn, a rare and obscure album to re-discover. Doug Carn is one of the most famous artist of the Soul Jazz scene. His “best of” and “the best of Black Jazz” sold many records worldwide. Il s'agit de la réédition d'un album « perdu » de Doug Carn, sorti en 1977 juste après la période Black Jazz de Doug Carn et sa séparation avec sa femme Jean Carn. Cet album a été enregistré juste après la conversion de Doug Carn à l'islam et le changement de son nom en ABDUL RAHIM IBRAHIM.
