Heading to Massachusetts
It's been a busy Spring/Summer: shows, lots of sessions and some showcases, and presently finishing up a super fun soundtrack accompanying an animated book for Weston Woods Studios. All while staying with dear friends on their farm in Loudoun County while we prepare to make our move to Northampton MA.
I'll be doing more or less the same type of work, with some other spicy additions, and will be making back to the DC area each month for about a week.
So please reach me here, or on FB, email, etc. so we can organize these trips to work for you and your venue, project or what have yaz!
In the meanwhile, I love you DC...I'll see you as often as I can!
And don't forget: Stones Trib Show at Filmore August 3rd. I'll be doing Beast of Burden and Before They Make Me Run. Makes sense. Also hitting with many other numbers.

Jon with Eric Lindell, Emory Joseph and new Project Collaborations
A busy Summer gives way to a colorful Autumn, and Jon is looking eagerly forward to some very special projects:
~It was great getting back onto the stage (for a Rounder Records anniversary gala at Opryland, which will be telecast this Spring on PBS) with Mary Chapin Carpenter. Among the other artists on the roster were Alison Krauss and the boys, Irma Thomas, Bela Fleck, and Minnie Driver, whose band included many of Jon's buds from other tours and sessions. Great time!
~Jon composed and produced the music for two new releases from Weston Woods Studio's line of videos for Scholastic: The Scrambled States of America Talent Show, the animated version of the highly-popular series by Laurie Keller. Galen Fott is the animator, and Jon was thrilled to be able to also do many of the character voices in this zany romp of a show!
~ Jon's music also underscores How Do Dinosaurs Go To School, the latest in the Jane Yolen & Mark Teague series--a bounding good tome for the kiddos.
~Jon will be hitting again with Alligator artist Eric Lindell and his good buds on an East Coast swing in November, which will include a stop at The State Theater in Va. Check the gig calendar for dates and details.
~Then, it'll be a treat to hit with Emory Joseph and his band at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble in Woodstock, NY on November 27th.
~Jon and his group will be back at The Barns at Wolf Trap on March 5, 2010. Get tix now for good seats! The big sound of Love Returns.
~A cool collaboration, tentatively called Jay Walkers will perform at the Intersections Festival at the Atlas Arts Center in DC on February 26th and 27th. The project features Jon, percussionist composer Tosin Aribisala (formerly with Femi Kuti) and Michael Shereikis (Chopteeth, Elikeh) and others who will present and explore some new directions.
~Jon is thrilled to be producing a new version of Pete Seeger's If I Had A Hammer for the Loudoun County Habitat for Humanity with Mary Ann Redmond and others.

Washington Post Review
JON CARROLL "Love Returns" Azalea City
Friday, January 12, 2007; Page WE10
IF THERE WERE A WAMMIE award for "Most Prolific Guest Artist," Jon Carroll would have a mantel crowded with them by now. Though best known for his work with Starland Vocal Band and Mary Chapin Carpenter, the keyboardist-composer-vocalist has more recording credits than Donald Trump has nasty things to say about Rosie O'Donnell, or vice versa.
Carroll, however, recently reserved enough time to record "Love Returns," his first solo album in more than a decade. It's a vibrant reminder of what he does best, whether it's conjuring vintage R&B/soul sounds, the inspiration for "Maybe This Romance," "Take It All Back" and several other tracks, or composing a ballad as evocative as "Land That Time Forgot," which manages to bring to mind both novelist Annie Proulx and tunesmith John Prine, or coming up with a country ditty as innocently engaging as "On the Front Porch."
Two cover tunes -- Ted Hawkins's "The Good and the Bad" and Dan Zanes's "Darkness Before Dawn" -- neatly fit alongside the original tunes, and though the arrangements tend to be spare -- too spare, at times -- they're enhanced by Carroll's own list of guest musicians, which includes drummer Dave Mattacks, guitarist Duke Levine, reedman Chris Watling and trumpeter Alan MacEwen. Sure, Carroll is accustomed to seeing his name listed in the fine print, but he headlines this session with talent and charm to spare.
