Soul Docter is the new studio album from saxophonist/singer-songwriter Jimmy Carpenter and is his fourth solo project. It is self-produced and was recorded in Nonebody Studio 1 in Las Vegas.
Carpenter did so after assembling a first-class group of musicians to augment his sax and vocal work. They include Cameron Tyler (drums/percussion/background vocals), Jason Langley (bass), Trevor Johnson (guitar), Chris Tofield (guitar/background vocals), Red Young (keyboards), Carrie Stowers and Queen Aries (background vocals). The album also features guitarist Nick Schnebelen on the title track. The Bender Brass kicked in some help as did blues guitarist, Mike Zito.
Seven of the ten songs are original, Carpenter written/co-written compositions. The tunes are sometimes sexy; sometimes peppy; but always bluesy. There’s nothing like when the sax and blues blend together. If you love this kind of combination – and Boomerocity certainly does – then you’ll want to check out Soul Doctor by Jimmy Carpenter!
