Bassist Dave Carpenter appeared on over two hundred recordings, and had dozens of television, film theme and soundtracks to his recording credit. He worked with major artists including Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson, Woody Herman, Mike Stern, Allan Holdsworth, Sadao Watanabe, Alan Pasqua and Herbie Hancock. He appeared as a soloist with the Los Angeles and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras plus Tanglewood and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestras.

Carpenter was a founding member of the “Lounge Art Ensemble" along with Bob Sheppard and Peter Erskine, and was hailed by listeners and critics alike for his playing on both acoustic and electric basses. “He was not only a bassist's bassist, but a pianist's bassist, a drummer's bassist," said Erskine. “Dave Carpenter was a BAND's bassist supreme.

He made any piece of music sound and feel better by his incredible musicianship, uncompromising beat and unerring ability to choose the right note at the right time. His musical presence will be sorely missed by all who knew and heard him."
