Jimmy Carpenter

The last 2 years have been very good to Jimmy Carpenter!!

In addition to his work as bandleader and horn arranger with New Orleans icon Walter Wolfman Washington and The Roadmasters, he has embarked on a very exciting project with Mike Zito and The Wheel, recording 2 albums (Gone to Texas and the just-released Live CD/DVD, Songs From the Road, on Ruf Records). He was nominated in 2014 for Best Instrumentalist/Horn by the Blues Foundation, and he has just released his 2nd solo album, Walk Away, on Vizztone. Keeping up a steady international touring schedule, he has appeared as Special Guest Artist on several major festivals this year, including Paulie's New Orleans Jazz and Blues Festival, Worcester, MA; Blues from The Top, in Winter Park, CO; Blues to Bop in Lugano, Switzerland, and The BIg Blues Bender, Las Vegas. He is also ramping up his own band's presence, doing multiple shows in New Orleans this fall, and producing and headlining the long-running MNOP Festival (Music of New Orleans Perigueux), in Perigueux, France. All this in advance of hitting the road with Mike Zito this October/November, to promote their Ruf Records releases in the U.S. and Europe.

"Walk Away is a great second effort, beautifully produced and backed by an outstanding array of New Orleans musicians. Carpenter titled his first release Toiling in Obscurity. But with the work he's put in and the skills he exhibits here, that description no longer applies. Jimmy Carpenter is finally out front, in the spotlight where he belongs."

"Carpenter's duet with Reba Russell on the closer, “Fellow Traveler” is stunning."
