"The main appeal of the studio is Jeff himself. He's so easy going and real generous."
Tim Krekel, musician/songwriter/producer
". . . whatever magic is in Carpenter's place just infuses the work that is made there with a certain vibe, just as whiskey soaks up the sugars and color of the wood of the barrel it gets placed in after it ferments. And, oh, how sweet it can taste."
Tim Roberts, Louisville Music News critic
"Carpenter has Motown ears. You can't just call him a sound engineer, because he helps you produce records. He doesn't assert himself in the process, except he offers really good advice in the guise of suggestions."
Nick Stump, Metropolitan
"[O]ur band felt so at home and so comfortable working with Jeff, we decided that we must record our entire CD at Al Fresco's."
Cole Stevens, Bryant Stevens Band
"He wants to be sure that the product is something everyone is happy with. With Jeff, there is no 'your hour is up - now get out,' kind of thing. It's very laid back."
Joni Wilcoxson, songwriter
