Paul Carr, soprano saxophone, and Joey Calderazzo play Till There Was You. Paul Carr, a Houston native, has dedicated his professional career to mastering the technically challenging saxophone and the art of Jazz. Paul is a heavyweight contender amongst saxophonists. He carries on the Texas tenor tradition espoused by great hero’s such as the late Houstonian Arnett Cobb. Other influences in his music include John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins. Paul completed his formal music education at Howard University, garnering a prestigious Distinguished Performance Award at the 1983 Notre Dame Jazz Festival and a citation in Down Beat Magazine.
Joey Calderazzo (born Joseph Dominick Calderazzo, February 27, 1965 in New Rochelle, New York) is a jazz pianist and brother of musician Gene Calderazzo.

He studied with Richard Beirach and in the 1980s continued his studies at Berklee College of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. At the same time, he was playing professionally with David Liebman and Frank Foster.
At a music clinic he met saxophonist Michael Brecker and became part of his quintet beginning in 1987. In 1990, he signed with Blue Note Records.Brecker produced Calderazzo’s first album, In the Door, which featured Jerry Bergonzi and Branford Marsalis, his brother’s roommate in Boston. They played on his second album, To Know One, which included Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette.
Calderazzo appeared on Brecker’s albums Tales from the Hudson and Two Blocks from the Edge as pianist and composer. He played keyboard in Marsalis’s Buckshot LeFonque and contributed to his album Music Evolution. When pianist Kenny Kirkland died in 1998, Calderazzo assumed his place in the Branford Marsalis Quartet. In 1999 he recorded Joey Calderazzo with John Patitucci and Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts.[4] He played on Marsalis’s albums Contemporary Jazz, Footsteps of Our Fathers, Romare Bearden Revealed, Eternal and on the DVD Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’ Live in Amsterdam. Calderazzo’s composition «Hope» appears on Braggtown.
