It was Jimmy's freshman year in college. The local campus radio station was on and a program called "The Sounds Of Sinatra" was playing. Jimmy was mezmerized by the lyrics and the melodies. The next day he traded all his rock n' roll albums for all the Sinatra records that were in this little swap shop on campus. He was hooked! And so began his journey of learning about jazz and all the great singers of what is known as "The Great American Songbook". Lyrics and songs by Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. Singers who told the story of love and lost love, such as Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Sarah Vaughan, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Williams, Nat King Cole and Blossom Dearie. There are too many to mention here, but all of these great artists have influenced Jimmy and what he chooses to sing for you. He is on a musical journey and looks forward to sharing a song with you!
