A Detroit native, Carlos Redman has grown into one of the most prolific experimental trumpeters of our generation. Blending a sultry combination of Hip-hop, R&B, Rock, and Classical in Jazz genres, the young horn player continues to defy boundaries as he is often drawn in comparison to the great Donald Byrd.
At an early age encountering people such as Betty Carter, James Carter, and Donald Byrd his beginnings as a young performer in small venues and jazz festivals has blossomed into a career standing on stage with Jackie McClean, Sam Rivers, Fred Wesley, Aretha Franklin, Terence Blanchard, Wendell Brunious, Ernie Rodgers, Johnnie Griffeth, Hal Galper, Peter Martin, Clyde Kerr, and Aaliyah.
Traveling and encountering people from all over the world as a composer has grown him a reputation as a capable artist that fervently loves writing music that not only speaks for people in the mainstream, but ever mindful indigents that speak of the basic humanity of man.
