Carl Bartlett, Jr.

Exciting and innovative artist Carl Bartlett, Jr. was born into a musical family in Queens, New York and began playing the clarinet, trumpet and piano at an early age. His father, Carl Bartlett, Sr. and uncle, Charles Bartlett, formed an R&B show and dance band, “The Bartlett Contemporaries”, during the 60’s later giving young Carl an advanced tutorial to the early fusions of jazz and Latin rhythms. At 14, the multi-talented Bartlett, Jr. began taking on the alto-saxophone, which combined with his burgeoning love for jazz provided him with enough push to heed his calling upon listening to a Brecker Brothers (to this day he cites Michael Brecker, Sonny Stitt, Charlie Parker, and Joshua Redman, amongst others as influences) album his uncle brought over one Christmas Day. At the tender age of 19, Bartlett, Jr. would form his own jazz band and proceed to make a name for himself playing gigs throughout the New York, tri-state area.
