Jean Carn

Singer Jean Carne's career has had various incarnations, as well as a slight name change similar to Dionne Warwick's (adding an "e" to the end of her last name as Warwick did for a short time). Born Sarah Jean Perkins in Columbus, GA, she was raised in Atlanta. She began singing gospel music in the church choir at age four; she also took piano lessons and learned the clarinet and bassoon. Carne won a music scholarship to Morris Brown College and began her recording career in 1969 with her husband, keyboardist Doug Carn, on the Black Jazz label, where she was one of the last vocalists to work with jazz legend Duke Ellington before his death.

Carne popped up several times during the early-to-mid-'70s, singing with Earth, Wind & Fire on two albums, recording several times with Norman Connors, and reaching the charts via George Duke's hit single "Reach for It." In 1977, Carne was signed to Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff's Philadelphia International Records; her debut album, Jean Carn, was a classy affair that merged the best of '70s soul and jazz with solid songwriting and tight instrumental support (MFSB, Instant Funk). The debut single "Free Love" went to number 23 R&B. Though the follow-up single didn't chart, several of the album's tracks received considerable radio airplay, and some tracks made the disco charts. In June 1978, her second album for the label was released; Happy to Be With You included the hit single "Don't Let It Go to Your Head."

Carn's final Philadelphia International album, 1980's When I Find You Love, was more of a return conceptually (musically and sonically) to Jean Carn. Produced by Dexter Wansel, the album rates as one of Carne's best efforts. The smooth and halting "My Love Don't Come Easy" peaked at number 35 R&B. Released in August 1981, Carne's Sweet and Wonderful featured a remake of the Spinners' "Love Don't Love Nobody," which went to number 35 R&B. Carne moved to Motown Records in 1982, making her label debut with the album Trust Me. The single "If You Don't Know Me By Now," a cover of the Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes hit with backing vocals by the Temptations, went to number 49 R&B.

By 1986, Carne signed to Omni Records; Closer than Close was released in July of that year and the title track that went to number one R&B. Her 1988 album You're a Part of Me included a hit cover of Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way." Carne later signed with Place One Entertainment, which reunited her with former Omni Records president Steve Bernstein, with her Love Lessons album being distributed by PPI/Peter Pan. Carne continues to tour with Connors, among others, and makes her home in Atlanta. ~ Ed Hogan, Rovi

Listening to Jean Carn brings back so many good memories of when we used to have albums and have house parties in the 70s! I love her voice!
I love the fact that Jean can sing everything. However, her work with Doug are classics for the modern jazz world. No one came close to their offerings technically, creatively and spiritually.

Would love to hear her do PEACE
Jean Carne is one of those really talented singers that got a little over looked for what she gave musically.
Truly one of our most gifted singers of our time. It's too bad that the partnership between her and Doug Carn di dnot last because it was with him that she produce some of her best and most creative work. I miss her in the jazz world. Wow! what a loss.
REALITY MUSIC!!!
I just saw Jean Carn at Blues Alley (Wash, DC) back in the summer. You talk about still having her gift, girfriend turned it out. God Bless You Jean!! DC Fan Always

The Jean Carne rendition of"it takes a fool to learn that love don't love nobody" is the bomb. But you want to her her jam. Find the song "I'm back for more" with Jean Carne and Al johnson.That song is on her "Collaration " Album of 2002 first song I listen to it over and over. She was in rare forum on that song. That's when I really start liking her music.This station need to find more then one Jean Carne album.

Jean Carn is simply PHENOMENAL!! ! ! Her vocal range puts Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to shame. I can't see why she wasn't much more popular here in the USA. Jean Carn, along with Minnie Riperton, Merry Clayton, Anita Baker, and Jill Scott, rank at the top of my list of female singers in particular and all-time singers overall. What an angelic voice she has!!!!!
i WOULD LIKE TO HEAR HER RENDITION OF "IT TAKES A FOOL TO LEARN THAT LOVE DON'T LOVE NOBODY" SUNG BY JEAN CARN
This is my first time hearing her. Wow,wow,wow! Please play more of her! She sounds wonderful!!
tarvismack
