Jimmy Carpenter Plays The Blues - Available September 8, 2017

During the long drives of my last tour with Mike Zito and The Wheel, a frequent topic was, "what should Jimmy do next?" "You need to make a straight-ahead Blues album! That's what your fans want to hear, and I want to produce it!" says Mike. A few months later, concept became reality, and Jimmy Plays the Blues was done. A collection of Blues classics and a couple of originals, this record is me doing what I have always done: play the Blues in a small band setting, no frills, no horn section, no background vocals...just me, my horn, and my voice. With Special guests: Tinsley Ellis, Jon Del Toro Richardson, Tony Ditiedoro, Anders Osborne, Lewis Stephens and Dave Keyes.
