The 11-piece Ghost Train Orchestra was formed in 2006 after Brian Carpenter was hired as the music director for an event marking the 90th anniversary of the Regent Theater in Arlington, MA. Since then the band has been performing unearthed music mined from the dusty vaults of a basement record collection, new arrangements of "voodoo music" and spirited stomps from late 1920s Chicago and Harlem jazz bands. Their debut album 'Hothouse Stomp' was released March 8 2011 on Accurate Records. The Ghost Train Orchestra is currently developing material for a recording of all new arrangements of American "novelty jazz" composers from the 1930s and 1940s.
