Jimmy Carpenter Nominated for Best Sax by Offbeat Magazine

I am very honored to announce that I've been nominated for "Best Saxophonist" by Offbeat Magazine's Best of the Beat Awards. This comes as a total surprise and a huge thrill. I feel privileged just to walk the streets in this town full of amazing musicians, and it is a great feeling to be recognized in New Orleans.

You can vote in this poll by following the link below. Also nominated is Honey Island Swamp Band, for Best Roots Artist and Best Roots CD, Good to You. I play with Honey Island and did the horn arrangements on Good to You, so while you're there, vote for this great band too.
