Born: July 24, 1974
Ian Carey is a trumpeter, composer, arranger, bandleader and instructor, who “asks deep musical questions and comes up with compelling answers” (Bill Kirchner, editor, The Oxford Companion to Jazz). Born in 1974 in Binghamton, New York, Carey grew up in a house suffused with music and art. Ian’s first musical outlet was singing in a church choir, where his exposure to a brass quintet turned his eye to the trumpet. He started on cornet and French horn in elementary school, but switched back to trumpet for good in high school after his family relocated to Folsom, California (site of a now-famous high school jazz program)...
