Quirky, rollicking and charged, the sound of Ghost Train Orchestra is “a crazy-beautiful living-history lesson” (Boston Globe) sprung forth from the mind of Boston composer and trumpet player Brian Carpenter. This critically acclaimed throwback ensemble delights audiences with music from the Jazz Age, arranging pieces by now-forgotten 1920s composers in Chicago and Harlem. The band’s debut album Hothouse Stomp reached the Top 10 on the Billboard charts and was named “Best of Jazz” by NPR in 2011, thanks to “sharp arrangements…sweet voicings, and fiery rhythms of the original era” (Downbeat Magazine).
