Wanting his music “listenable and something you feel,” Atlanta Saxophonist, Kenyon Carter, scores a Bullseye with his release, “Right By My Side”. Mr. Carter finds the right balance of smooth grooves with the just the right touch of jagged edge. Influenced by the masters of many styles and musical periods, this recording delivers a casual feel which is both comfortable in the concrete city jungle and at ease at the lake or mountain retreat. Think of it as casual, like a favorite pair of blue jeans and un-tucked cotton shirt, complimented by those shoes with a little attitude.
Music made by friends can produce an intangible element obtained when the focused work effort includes the aspects of deep friendship and keeping it fun. Mr. Carter calls on his buddies to bring this music to life. After few listens, “Right By My Side”, proves to be a contagious collection of songs which blend easily for a dinner party sound track or a Sunday morning solo session with coffee and the paper. You decide, bet you chose both.
“Right By My Side” is the title of Kenyon Carter’s latest project. It is also a great place to keep this CD. Thanks, Kenyon, there is certainly room for more right next to this CD. Keep ‘em coming!
