Jazz Artist and Musician

George W Carroll, a Sarasota, Fl icon is at the center of jazz entertainment in his adopted hometown.

In his own words, Carroll says: ''I have no delusions about big time events in the music business itself.''

International Jazz Artist and Vocalist – Jazz Pianist

"It's a tough racket, believe me." But sometimes I'm in awe of my own accomplishments during this era of clubs closing left and right. George's data base (locally) of some 1600 + names show up at his performances at clubs, a concert, fund raisers etc. and ‘‘this is very gratifying’’ Carroll says. Our audience gets younger every year. My wife Mary counsels me to just let things evolve and don't over manage or over analyze. Carroll has attracted admirers on the national stage as well including legendary jazz vocalist Mark Murphy who says: "I love what George does with his selections from the American Songbook."Murphy has also called George ''a great player-singer."USA jazz pianist treasure Dick Hyman has called George "a considerable jazz performer and there are several original attractive songs which you present." Presently, George is reaching out to the USA, Asian, and European jazz artist markets trying to attract attention in the area of jazz promoters, jazz festival directors, jazz artist booking agencies, national and international jazz performance venues, et al.

Jazz Artist and Composer

George has stood on the shoulders of some of the best jazz performers this world has produced and these have gone on to better things. I refer to such luminaries as jazz guitar sensation John Abercrombie, jazz composer/arranger Mandel-esque and jazz pianist Alan Broadbent, Buddy Rich alumna Greg Hopkins, et al. Over the years and through it all George exclaims: ''Music has been my engine.''

Big Band Jazz Quartet

Throughout the years, George hasn't stood still regarding leaving his musical legacy. He has self produced some 25 + vocal big band jazz CD projects involving both his big band jazz quartet. Even ''PBS'' produced a 1/2 hour feature on George's career zeroing in on his big band and symphony vocal offerings. Carroll has penned some 10,000 + songs in his musical life and George says "it's fun to get yearly royalties on some of them which are played from Boston to Australia." With his tongue in his cheek, George says ''Have music, will travel."
