Seattle native Carlos Overall (tenor sax) was born into a strong musical family. He performed with Washington Middle School (Robert Knatt) and Garfield High School (Clarence Acox) at jazz festivals including Montreux, North Sea, Reno, Lionel Hampton and Fullerton. He later graduated from Morehouse College, performing with their big band and combos. The music of John Coltrane, Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix have always been strong influences for Overall as a listening child and throughout his professional playing career. In addition to playing saxophone, he has crafted beats and produced some hip-hop and rap for various artists in Seattle, Atlanta and NYC. Carlos continues to share his love of music from jam sessions to studio sessions, performing with his own band or with other incredible artists around the PNW.
