What People Are Saying
Last Wednesday's performance was as eclectic and intriguing as ever... meticulously researched.Mark D.
Hi Jim, You did it again--You had the audience mesmerized!! I began to think as I was returning home how much energy and time you had put into your charismatic delivery. Your filing system for all the dates and facts about various artists and composers must be amazingly complicated--and I realize that you pull some of it off the top of your head. Your knowledge of what the instruments are doing in a particular arrangement is what all band leaders have to do. But, it's great that you are able to explain this to all of us eager listeners! Thank you again.Julianne L.
I hope you know you're appreciated, and you may not know how many ways you are touching peoples lives. You bring up so many memories.Pat P.
Your infectious enthusiasm for your subject was the highlight of our holiday and beat the Hermitage and all the wonderful sites in the Baltic into second place, I hope to see you again as we're planning to come over to LA in the not-too-distant future; we will try and work our holiday around your lecture dates.Dave M.
As always, I was just delighted by your lecture last night - running in one sweep from Sinatra and baseball, to Shirley Bassey and her doorbell in Monte Carlo, to Doo Wop and Benny Goodman....had a great time at dinner talking about it allTom B.
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your talks on the American Songbook. I don't know anyone else who can come up with such depth and breadth of knowledge - I could listen to you all day. And I also love the way you deliver - with style, laughter and timing. I'm a University lecturer (and have been for almost 40 years) and I learned a lot about how to improve my delivery just by listening to you.Bob H.
Hi Jim, Thanks for last Thursday at the Beverly Hills Library. Your presentation was superb! I thoroughly enjoyed all the insight that you brought to great American music. I am a big fan of this music and through your efforts (and that of others), you are keeping it alive and thriving. I can't wait for the January 14th event.Jay
Your passion for good music is contagious, and irresistible.Bill J.

Thanks for your terrific presentation. I heard many favorable comments on your talk. You did yourself and others proud.Jeffrey N
I was enthralled at the stories and introductions of each song and have such renewed appreciation for the music. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you do to keep the music alive and in helping to bring new generations along for the ride!David H.
Last night this guy was so infectious and exuberant and so generous with his enthusiasm and his knowledge that I fairly felt intoxicated with pleasure. He was so present and spontaneous, you could call what he delivered as a lot of trivia but it was so potent in its impact that there has got to be some better word for it. He sharpened my senses to the sounds, to the rhythms, the poetry, the inner and outer context of subjects dear to my heart... music, words, the creative process, the mystery (to me) of how an artist functions and communicates.Elizabeth A.
What a treasure you are for those of us who can never get enough of America's great standards.Iva D.
...more Jimirro Genius (Jenius) with words.Judy W.
