Blues Music Award winner in 2021 and 2022 as best horn instrumentalist  Jimmy Carpenter’s career has spanned over 35 years, and shows no sign of slowing down. The saxophonist, singer/ songwriter/arranger began in North Carolina in 1980, touring the East Coast with the renegade blues band, The Alka-Phonics. He then moved to Virginia to work with bluesrock outfit The Believers, where his talent for singing, songwriting, and the music business grew. During his tenure with these two groups Jimmy often played the stages of Tobacco RoadBoston's on the BeachSkippers SmokehouseSloppy Joe's and other Florida strongholds of live music.  Since then he has toured the globe with Tinsley EllisJimmy Thackery, and, after a move to New Orleans in 2004, with Walter Wolfman WashingtonEric Lindell, and most recently, his long-time friend and musical cohort, Mike Zito. In addition to thousands of live performances, he has written, arranged, and recorded the horns for many of these artists’ recordings. Now living in Las Vegas, his reputation as one of the premiere Blues, Rock-n-Roll and R&B saxophonists continues to grow, and he is heavily involved with the very popular Big Blues Bender, as assistant talent buyer and musical director. In late 2017 Jimmy released his third solo album, which follows the acclaimed Toiling in Obscurity, (self-release, 2008), and Walk Away, (Vizztone, 2014). The aptly entitled Jimmy Carpenter Plays the Blues: is a straight-up, no frills, blues sax record, produced by Mike Zito and featuring classic blues covers and some cool originals. Jimmy continues to tour internationally with his own band, and often as a special guest on major festivals all over the world. 

His latest release just out in September 2022 on Gulfcoast Records, The Louisiana Record, is currently enjoying world-wide airplay. Jimmy  lived and performed in New Orleans from early 2004 until 2016, and his time there clearly influenced his music.“Without question, New Orleans and the music that flows out of that great city have had a huge impact on me, musically and personally,” Carpenter says. “These are songs by iconic American songwriters including Allen Toussaint, Fats Domino, and Dr. John. These are just a few of my favorites that helped shape me and my approach to writing, playing, and living. It is impossible to overstate the influence New Orleans, its music and its musicians have had on me, as player, songwriter, and performer.  The Louisiana Record is my tribute to the mash-up of Blues, Soul, Rhythm & Blues, and Rock-n-roll that is New Orleans Music."  Joining Jimmy Carpenter (sax and vocals) for the red beans and rice run of 11 songs on The Louisiana Record are: Mike Zito – guitars; Casandra Faulconer - bass guitar; John Gros - piano/organ; and Wayne Maureau – drums.
