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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
