With a 40 year career that’s included stints with Roy Haynes and Pharoah Sanders – not to mention co-founding Amnesia Express with Gil Scott-Heron - Carl Cornwell is a veteran saxophonist still performing high energy post-bop contemporary jazz with blues and latin influences.
Known in the 90s for his compositions & performances with progressive jazz ensemble UNIT CIRCLE, he has been the featured saxophonist with the Washington DC based Project Natale since 2002 and is now touring his own quartet at festivals and clubs around the mid-Atlantic corridor and beyond.
In addition to his small ensemble work, Carl has appeared as lead alto-saxophonist with the Bay Side Big Band and the Eubie Blake Jazz Institute Orchestra (Baltimore, MD) and earned grants for both piano performance and jazz composition from the Maryland State Arts Council’s Individual Artists Program.
