John Carlini – Rising Jazz Guitar Music Star-dxperience

Arts-and-Entertainment Jazz guitarist John Carlini is a musical renaissance man! He embraces jazz guitar music as well as all other styles of music with an understanding and passion that is evident everytime he picks up his guitar. His influences range from guitarists like Andres Segovia, Django Reinhardt, and Lenny Breau to pianist Bill Evans and saxophonist John Coltrane. Carlini has the uncanny ability to incorporate all these players’ styles and make them his own! John truly has music in his blood. His father was a violinist in the New York Philharmonic Orchestra while his mother was a virtuoso classical pianist. John went on to collabrate in musical ventures with contemporary acoustic musicians like David Grisman and Tony Rice. John Carlini was named by Frets Magazine as a founding member of the revolutionary West Coast new acoustic music movement of the 1970s. He was the lead guitarist in the ground breaking new acoustic music group, The Great American Music Band. Ten years earlier after discovering the Wheeling, West Virginia, Jamboree on the radio, John made the New York City folk music scene while he was still a teenager. Sitting in for Jim Rooney with Bill Keith’s band, he met David Grisman. In the next two decades this fortuitous union would change the world’s perception of what acoustic string music could be. A graduate of both Boston’s Berklee School of Music as an arranging and .position major and the United States Navy School of Music, where he played big band rhythm guitar in the Navy Show Band, Carlini became the musical director of the newly formed David Grisman Quintet. The band’s distinctive sound emanated in part from his sophisticated, jazz influenced arrangements. Carlini’s arrangements are featured on David Grisman’s "Dawg Jazz" (1982) and his orchestrations include work with the Turtle Island String Quartet and the Kronos Quartet. John also orchestrated David Grisman’s score for the Federico DeLaurentis film "King of The Gypsies". John Carlini is the guitarist on Grisman’s Gammy nominated "Dawg ’90" and he performed with Grisman and Stephane Grepelli at Carnegie Hall. In 1992 Carlini was a New York "Drama Desk Award" nominee for his orchestrations in the hit off Broadway musical "Song of Singapore" which was also released on CD. John has recently been developing his new acoustic guitar music with two bands – The John Carlini Jazz Ensemble which showcases jazz oriented aspects of his music and Over the Edge which is defining a harmonically advanced bluegrass based music. Carlini’s masterful jazz guitar musicianship is widely acknowledged. Guitar Player magazine calls him "a wily mainstream jazz guitar veteran with an unerring feel for all idioms". Fortunately for aspiring guitarists, John Carlini has released several jazz guitar tab books and instructional DVD courses which teach his single note improvised solos and chord melody solos as well as the pickstyle and fingerstyle guitar techniques he uses to play them.
