Call in to speak with the host
For over 25 years, fans and critics alike have raved about Carl Filipiak. Known way beyond his beloved Baltimore, this pioneer of Jazz picking has made friends worldwide because of what the Jazz Times has said about him. "A dazzingly versatile guitarist."
While we're on the subject - Billboard, Jazziz and Guitar Player have also had plenty to say about this major source of Charm City pride. Also taking note: Turner Broadcasting and NBC Sports - both networks have featured Carl's music in many of their televised events, including the Olympics.
Carl's roots are in Rock but he realized his passion for Jazz as the depth of his guitar playing evolved. As a result, his songwriting combined with his music to emerge as transformative - Jazz fusion may cover it but you may have your own label if you've heard it! Truly energized and unique And his independently produced recordings attest to that.
This award-winning, multi-talented native son has also been involved in the production of instructional videos, books, and has contrbuted and consulted for several music publications. Carl has been involved in music education as well - and blessed is the student who has learned from THIS master!
Through the years, Carl has worked with virtually everyone of note in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. based Jazz. Also, he has opened for, worked alongside of or recorded with Chick Corea, Cindy Blackmon, Wynton Marsalis, Victor Wooten and Freddie Hubbard. And you might want to ask guitar afficianados about The Jimi Jazz Band - that's a whole 'nother story!
Carl joins me on the day after the Fourth of July - you can best believe that the fireworks will still be heard. Join us and learn more about our guest at www.carlfilipiak.com or on Facebook.
