James Carney CD discography While James Carney has gained the greatest attention for his compositional abilities (winning the 1999 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Composers Award), he is also a highly original pianist. On this trio date with Dan Lutz and Todd Sickafoose taking turns on bass, and Dan Morris on drums and percussion, the emphasis is on Carney's playing, even though he wrote all nine selections (two of which were freely improvised). His melodies are complex and his playing, which in this setting is often both brooding and lyrical, develops naturally from the themes. Morris' exotic percussion and Carney's interest in rhythms from other cultures is felt throughout the music, making this adventurous project into much more than a typical trio date. In fact, the results show the great potential in James Carney's imaginative playing. ~ Scott Yanow James Carney is an excellent Los Angeles-based pianist/composer with an advanced style that builds upon the innovations of the past, and he was originally an orchestral brass player and a pop keyboardist from New York. This is his first trio album and it Recorded at Cello Studios, Hollywood, California in March 2001. Personnel: James Carney (piano); Todd Sickafoose (acoustic bass); Dan Morris (drums, kanjira). Audio Mixer: Dan Pinder. Liner Note Author: Josef Woodard. Recording information: Cello Studio 2, Hollywood, CA (03/02/2001-03/04/2001). Personnel: James Carney (piano); Todd Sickafoose, Dan Lutz (acoustic bass); Dan Morris (drums, dumbek, thavil, kanjira).
Fables From the Aqueduct Fables From the Aqueduct CD (1994)
CD $17.79 Buy It  Details
During an era when many up-and-coming players emulate their predecessors a bit too closely, pianist James Carney performs music that, although linked to the tradition, pushes ahead into uncharted territory. A talented composer and an original voice on piano, Carney leads a group of young players (with the alternating horns including trumpeter Ralph Alessi; tenors Ravi Coltrane and Chuck Manning; altoist Scott Mayo; and Peter Epstein on ...
Offset Rhapsody Offset Rhapsody CD (1997)
CD $17.25 Buy It  Details
For L.A. pianist/composer Carney's second CD, it's more of the same modern jazz which he so adeptly displayed on his debut Fables from the Aqueduct. Tracks alternate between piano-led, romantic, impressionistic, ECM-like pieces and the highly composed and arranged group works that border on stunning. These two aspects let Carney show his mettle as a player and as a leader. Both sides are attractive, marking him as one of the more original younger musicians emerging in the '90s. Pieces like "Swamp Rookie," "Quinn Martin" and "Photo Op" ...

The title of jazz keyboardist James Carney's 2007 album, GREEN-WOOD, nods to Brooklyn's historic Green-Wood Cemetery, and, fittingly, the music on this dynamic outing evokes New York City, where the composer/performer cut his teeth on the downtown avant-garde scene. Supported by NYC-based luminaries such as Peter Epstein (soprano sax) and Ralph Alessi (trumpet), Carney conjures up urban life on the eerily funky "Smog Cutter" and the moody "In Lieu of Crossroads," while deftly reinforcing his reputation as an adventurous jazz artist.
