William Theodore Carney III is the son of Philadelphia jazz notables, organist Trudy Pitts and drummer Mr. C. Known as TC The 3rd, this powerful jazz vocalist is well-versed in the art of jazz vocal styling. His CD, Life Force Jazz was recorded live at the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and The Performing Arts. TC grew up around Masters of this music, so, he decided to capture some of this great talent on a first-class recording. With his legendary friend, Norman Connors, TC III created an All-Star cast for a concert. Al Young of the Philadelphia Daily News described it as the "Greatest show in thirty years." Jon Hendricks wrote the liner notes. TC III sings with Gary Bartz on Song For Debra, written and arranged by Elmer Gibson. Joey DeFrancesco is on ROME ALONE with TC's lyrics, written to Don Braden’s If I Were A Bell and on Rahsaan Roland Kirk's Bright Moments, with lyrics by Todd Barken, who manages Dizzy's Club at Jazz @ Lincoln Center in NYC. Trudy Pitt's solo on Abby Lincoln's Bird Alone is tremendous! His second CD, The Music released on October 1, 2021.
