About

Saxophonist/flutist/composer Carl Clements performs and records internationally in a variety of styles, with a particular focus on jazz, Hindustani classical music, and various forms of improvised and pre-composed music. He received a Ph.D. from the CUNY Graduate Center, an MFA from CalArts, a BM from Berklee College of Music, and has studied Hindustani classical flute (bansuri) since 1989. He is currently Saxophone/Improvisation Instructor and Jazz Combo Coach at Amherst College and is available for online and in-person lessons.

Looking forward to performing in Germany again with my friends in the Real Jazz Trio in June, Jean-Yves Jung (piano), Johannes Schaedlich (bass), Jens Biehl (drums).  See the GIGS section of my website to see where and when we'll be performing. Below is a video we did some years back of my tune One for Joe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KW3OCp_vHs
