Bill Carter and the Presbybop Quartet

July 16, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Presbybop Music is a musical venture of Bill Carter, jazz pianist and Presbyterian minister. After years of pretending to split the life of faith from the music of jazz, Bill has been trying to find links between the two halves of his brain. Presbybop is his attempt to integrate his faith with the rhythms of bebop.

In 1993 he formed the Presbybop Quartet with Al Hamme, his college music professor from Binghamton University. With the core lineup of drummer Ron Vincent and bassist Tony Marino, the band has evolved into a consort of musicians who have been turning heads on the musical scene.

Based in northeastern Pennsylvania, Bill’s ensemble has presented concerts and jazz worship services in churches and venues around the country.  The group has released ten albums. Their music has been widely acclaimed. To date, Bill’s Presbybop ensembles have recorded ten compact discs, the most recent of which is 2015’s Jazz for the Earth.
