Baritone saxophonist Carl Maraghi moved to New York City from his native Montreal, Canada. He received his Artist Diploma from the prestigious Juilliard School where he studied and performed with many great jazz artists such as Joe Temperley, Victor Goines, Joe Lovano, Benny Golson, Wycliffe Gordon and Wynton Marsalis. In New York City, he played in concerts with Mr. Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. He performs and tours with the Lionel Hampton Celebration Band that includes Nicholas Payton, Curtis Fuller, Jason Marsalis, Lew Solof and singer Diane Schuur.

Carl is also involved with Argentine bassist and composer Pedro Giraudo’s orchestra with recordings, concerts in the New York area and tour in Macau, China. Carl is part of the acclaimed David Berger Jazz Orchestra, touring and recording regularly in the U.S. and Europe. This ensemble performed every Tuesday night at the famous New York jazz club “Birdland” for three years, and recorded music for actor/director Denzel Washington’s movie “The Great Debaters”. The orchestra was part of two Mark Twain Prize PBS Specials honoring comedy legends Billy Crystal and Bill Cosby recorded at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Carl participated in the Henry Mancini Institute program in Los Angeles where he performed with saxophone great Chris Potter, and trumpet icon Doc Severinsen (bandleader in The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson for 30 years).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
