From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Doug Carn (born July 14, 1948)[1] is an American jazz musician from St. Augustine, Florida, formerly married to Jean Carne and known for his several albums released for Black Jazz Records.[2]

He studied oboe and composition at Jacksonville University from 1965 to 1967, then finished his education at Georgia State College in 1969.[2] He also taught piano and jazz improvisation at Jacksonville University for several years.

He, along with alligator wrestler Chris Lightburn and Rev. H. L. Patterson of St. Mary's Baptist Church, founded the Lincolnville Restoration and Development Commission in his home town of St. Augustine in 1978. One of the group's projects was the organizing, in 1979, of the annual Lincolnville Festival, which has continued into the 21st century and become one of the Ancient City's leading cultural events.

Carn recorded several albums on the Black Jazz Records label during the 1970s that have since achieved cult classic status, including Infant Eyes, Adam's Apple, and Revelation. He worked with Nat Adderley, Earth, Wind & Fire, Shirley Horn, Lou Donaldson, Stanley Turrentine, and Irene Reid.[2] Most recently, he was featured on drummer Cindy Blackman's (of Lenny Kravitz fame) latest release, Another Lifetime.
