Patty Carpenter

25 September, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Patty Carpenter is an acclaimed vocalist and pianist whose versatile repertoire includes original music and favorites from
the 1920’s to the present. Patty grew up playing the guitar and piano during the 1960s in Rochester, New York. At the
University of Massachusetts she studied in the jazz program under such master musicians and teachers as Max Roach,
Archie Shepp, Billy Taylor and Reggie Workman. It was Workman who advised, “if you want to sing the music, learn the
history.” She’s worked the woods ever since, honing her craft. The historian and jazz writer Marty Jezer said about Patty,
“She has a strong, clear and wonderfully buoyant trumpet like voice and an affinity for long, swinging straight ahead lines
like those of her favorite tenor saxophonists John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon and Wayne Shorter. She is extremely versatile
singing Jazz, Blues, Rock, Gospel and Latin tunes. Whether you swoon to Sinatra or Jitterbug to Goodman, the Dorseys
and Count Basie, you’re sure to be touched by the marvelous lyrical singing of Patty Carpenter.”
