Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, Hammond
organist Kendall Carter began playing the
piano at age 4 and moved to the organ
when he was 13.

Although his music is rooted in the gospel
tradition, Carter also draws influence from
notable organists Jimmy McGriff, Charles
Earland and Shirley Scott. Combining these
influences has allowed him to develop his
own philosophy on playing the blues and
keeping the groove.

Carter has worked with numerous renowned
musicians, including NEA Jazz Master Jamey
Aebersold, singer Carmen Bradford and
saxophonist Tim Warfield, among others.
His debut album, Introducing Kendall Carter,
which features veteran guitarist Dave Stryker
and drummer Kenny Phelps, draws on the
organ trio tradition with its stylized renditions
of jazz standards and R&B classics.
Carter graduated from the University of
Louisville with a bachelor’s in Jazz Piano
Performance and a master’s degree in Jazz
Composition and Arranging.
