Carrie Jahde: Drummer, Composer, Educator


“ exceptional drummer...the dance floor was filled with high-steppers matching the beat of the lively songs.”

        --Burney Garelick - Suislaw News

"...bassist Izzy and drummer Carrie Jahde are a powerful and nimble rhythm section." 
        --New York Music Daily

"The group’s collective sound is so energetic everyone was bobbing in time with the beat. ... Its upbeat fusion of jazz mingled with Cuban, Brazilian and American accents has developed quite a following among patrons sipping espresso or red wine."
        --Sarah Griego Guz  - Half Moon Bay Review
“The [Carmizin] trio imbues their music with inventive vocal harmonies and a hearty dose of improvisation. Each member of the group takes a turn in the spotlight, executing dexterous solos that use elements of bluegrass, folk andLatin funk as well as traditional  jazz.”  
--Glenn Shire - Eugene Weekly

"Carrie Jahde tastefully provides rhythms that are sophisticated and warm, driving and taut, swinging and straight-ahead, whatever is needed. She makes all those styles sound easy."
       --Duane Toole - The Hymn

"Carrie is very adept at Funk, Latin, and Jazz, as well as many of the dialects of these musical forms. ...I believe the fuel to Carrie's fire is her love of the music."
