Carlos Garnet - tenor sax
Carlos Garnet who hails from Panama, is a solid tenor man with top credentials who made his biggest impact in the late '60s and 1970s, when he was heard on recordings by Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Andrew Hill and Norman Connors. Garnett slipped into a dormant period in the 1980s but made a strong comeback in the following decade.
Garnet relocated to the Houston area in 1990 started a new band and set out releasing some fine records as “Fuego En Mi Alma,” (’96) “Under Nubian Skies,” (’99) and “Moon Shadow” in 2001.
Since then he has remained active performing and is sometimes accompanied by his daughter Myra. He is quite the jazz star in Panama where he recently appeared at the Panama Jazz Festival.
