Welcome to the site of Baltimore's jazz-rock guitarist Carl Filipiak. Best known for his early recordings with Dennis Chambers and Bob Berg, and currently his 60's influenced project, The Jimi Jazz Band.
We hope you enjoy your visit and stay tuned for all things music!
UPDATE - We're on hold in Maryland and we're
(im)patiently waiting for things to open up and have some good news on the music scene. Until then, check out our music and we hope to see you soon!
Looking forward to a late 2020 release of "Live at the Cat's Eye" and "What Now" on Geometric Records on 180 Gram Vinyl.
