Regular price £10.00 Sale

Rising star bassist/composer Aidan Carroll left the plains of Oklahoma in 2006 to begin a mentorship with jazz great John Patitucci at City College, New York, and has spent the past nine years on stage and in the studio with jazz icons such as Aaron Goldberg, Seamus Blake and John Abercrombie. More recently he has performed in the groups of Fred Hersch, Lisa Fischer, Melody Gardot, Sullivan Fortner and Ben Perowsky.

Carroll's highly-personal debut album Original Vision draws its title from a vision he had of becoming a musician when he was eight years old. The album blends contemporary jazz and soul with New York saxophone stars John Ellis and Ben van Gelder; pianist Sullivan Fortner, drummer Justin Brown and
soul singer Chris Turner are among the exceptional talents featured alongside Carroll on bass, keyboards and vocals.

Carroll says, "Original Vision is a blueprint of my creative process that brings together how I compose, improvise and envision sound. Creating the album was a transformative and cathartic experience that allowed me to present something that was truly my own. I’m proud to be able to bring this vision to life
alongside some of my favorite and respected musicians."
