Courtesy of the brothers Carter, Pittsburgh is now the official city of Brotherly… Jazz. With all due respect to Philadelphia, city of Brotherly Love, Winston and Charles (Chaz) Carter plan to initiate a steel city makeover, giving it the OFFICIAL new moniker as the City of Brotherly Contemporary Jazz with a flavor of R&B. The Carter Brothers note, "We like to electrify our audiences with high energy and love. Pittsburgh is our home, but we plan to spread the message of Brother 2 Brother featuring Carter Carter to all music aficionados worldwide". The Brothers' debut release, “Can I Take You There” (Grandiora Entertainment) will certainly do all that… and more.
They have appeared live as openers for artists such as Cameo, Bobby Brown, George Clinton Funkadelic Parliament, Norman Connors, Glen Jones, Rodger Troutman, Levert, Angela Bofill, Roy Ayers, Regina Belle and the list goes on. The Carter Brothers plan to tour extensively on the strength of their new project. The unique blend of contemporary jazz and R&B is sure to be a hit with the contemporary jazz R&B audience. The brothers note, "We're experienced musicians and playing contemporary jazz R&B gives us the chance to demonstrate our skills.”
Brothers in every sense of the word, they come from a strong music legacy. Introduced to music early by father Charles, Sr. and their late grandfather Ernest Williams, who was a nationally recognized jazz guitarist. Earning their musical stripes early on, while Winston worked in Los Angeles with Nancy Wilson's musical director Phil Wright and the musical arranger for Earth Wind & Fire, Tom Tom 84, Chaz teamed up with Nick Cenci, president of Zanzibar Records formerly with Motown. Chaz recorded the single "Go For Love" which was produced by Mike Ortega (who worked with jazz fusionist Nicota and Phillip Yoo of Maze). This single was the winner of the Budweiser Showdown Tournament of Jams sponsored by WAMO & Capital Records. Chaz and Winston then teamed up with the nationally and internationally known Norman Connors who produced their CD "Forever". Norman has discovered greats like Norman Brown, Phyllis Hyman, Michael Henderson, Marion Meadows and a host of other artists. Also the Carter brothers worked with Marlon McClain, Denise Stewart, and Herman Jackson.
Together again the Carter brothers teamed up with LA producer “Chuck Cymone” entitling their new cd “Can I Take You There”. Chuck Cymone is known in the industry as the A –team producer. Chuck is credited for producing artists such as Eric Darius, Peter White, Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot, Norman Connors, Christopher Williams, Paul Jackson, Commodores, George Howard, Chris Standring, Jeanette Harris and now Brother2Brother featuring Carter Carter.
