One of the brightest stars in the Kansas City Jazz firmament“ says Dr. Chuck Berg of JazzTimes Magazine. Jazz pianist Joe Cartwright has lived, performed and taught in the Kansas City area for the last twenty three years. He is a graduate of the UMKC Conservatory of Music. Cartwright currently leads his own duo, trio and quartet. 

Joe has performed on and produced numerous jazz recordings. His credits include work with internationally recognized jazz artists Eddie Harris, Sheila Jordan, Bill Watrous, Conte Condoli, Jeff Clayton, Rob McConnell, Carl Fontana, Red Holloway, John Clayton, Karrin Allyson, Tiger Okoshi, Claude ”Fiddler“ Williams, Richie Cole, Jimmy Witherspoon, Kevin Mahogany and Mel Torme. He has been a featured performer with the Kansas City Symphony and the Independence Symphony, and his trio was featured in performance at the 1992 World's Fair in Seville, Spain as representatives of Kansas City Jazz. Cartwright was a semi-finalist in the First Annual Thelonius Monk Jazz Competition in Washington D.C., a finalist in the Great American Jazz Piano Competition in Jacksonville, Florida, and a winner of the Missouri Music Teachers Classical Piano Competition. In the summer of 1997 Cartwright was invited to perform in Hong Kong as part of the change-over celebration. In the fall of 1998 he toured Africa as part of the USIA/ Kennedy Center Jazz Ambassador Touring Program. In the spring of 2000, Cartwright toured the Middle East, Africa, India and Southeast Asia as a USIA Jazz Ambassador.

When not performing and giving clinics, Joe composes, arranges and teaches jazz piano and theory.
