ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Composer-guitarist Jim Goodin travels through the passages of influence of many spirits in his music including the sadly missed Michael Hedges, Ralph Towner, minimalist composer Steve Reich, Irish bard O'Carolan, the weird brilliance of Bill Frisell and the beautiful, haunting music of jazz pioneer Bill Evans.

Jim's beautiful CD, Celtic Journey to The Path, was released in October 1999.

"Stream of consciousness" - Tom Salvatori, Lullaby Music

"Jim Goodin writes with sincerity. His music haunts while it paints beauty. Jim is in no hurry. He perfects his craft and plays in the moment. He does his "own thing"
and that's the beauty in his art. You'll discover that Jim does not sound like other players. Its really fresh and original." - Rob Lunte, guitarist

"I think your music has a real natural ease to it - very relaxed and musical." - Woody Mann, guitarist

"His original compositions subtly recall influences such as Will Ackerman and Ralph Towner, but Goodin is no copycat, finding his own personal harmonic 'space' in the context of a solo guitar recording." - Guitar9 Records

"That song 'For Michael' that you wrote for Michael Hedges is especially beautiful." - Joyce Oliveira, fan

"Goodin succeeds with a bold endeavor to compose & title an aural eulogy to artist Michael Hedges, who many progressive acoustic guitarists' worship. At the same time he has drawn a line on the fretboard for others to cross with his stunning Celtic/New Age creations." - MP3.com station, Artguitect

Jim's music is available in print through Mel Bay Publications. His song Celtic Overs is part of the 2001 Master Anthology of Fingerstyle Guitar Solos Vol. II. For information on this book go to http://www.melbay.com/authors.asp?author=1679. Jim has a new book, DADGAD Encyclopedia, coming out with Mel Bay, fall 2006. The accompanying CD was recorded at Imaginary Road, the personal studio of Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman.

Jim is an artist with The Orchard, a product endorser/clinician for GHS Strings and endorses Godin/Seagull guitars. Originally an Arkansas native, he now resides with his family in New York.

Jim Goodin is available for house concerts across the country. A house concert is an opportunity to bring Jim into your home to perform an evening of music for you and your friends. For more information about Jim's House Concerts goto http://www.woodandwiremusic.com/JimGoodin/house.html or email jimgoodinmusic@gmail.com.

"When I first heard his music on WWR [Whole Wheat Radio.org], I knew it was something special." - Rick Hapanowicz, house concert host, IL.

"Thank you for your desert tunes, the evocation of Geoergia O'Keeffee, the frenetic color, your dancing hands and the bouncing string ends. The pieces you played were soulful and beautiful." - Erik Schurink, house concert host, NY.

Jim also has a podcast series at http://jimgoodinmusic.libsyn.com or search in ITunes.

Goodin's Celtic Blues Raga
If you successfully blend fingerpicking American folk blues with Celtic melodies and Indian raga improvisation, you've got Jim Goodin. He is playing out of so many sources that he sounds exactly like himself. He produces a flowing river of sound that you can listen to straight through or dip in and out of as you write, paint or create new ideas. The best recommendation for his music is all the people who come up to me when I play his CD at my school: "Who is that playing - I feel so good hearing it." I've owned this CD from its first edition, and its synthesis of originality and timelessness keeps it new and pleasing.

Goodin Makes Good on Beautifull Guitar Music
Jim Goodin writes with sincerity. His music haunts while it paints beauty. Jim is in no hurry. He perfects his craft and plays in the moment. He does his "own thing" and thats the beauty in his art. You'll discover that Jim does not sound like other players. Its really fresh and original.
Jim is a master of alternate tunings, finger-stylistics and percussive techniques. A consumate finger-style pro.

J.L. Bueno, La Otra Musica - Cadiz, Spain

Thank you very much for sending me your wonderful CD.

A Soul Soothing tune. Review of For Michael from Celtic Journey
A soul soothing tune from Jim. The playing is incredible on this acoustical instrumental. The song takes many twists and turns but never strays too far. It's this attention to detail that prevents a listener from being disconcerted. Jim is well seasoned and knows what acoustic instrumental is about.

Chief Joseph From Seattle, Wa

Beautifull scapes and technique!
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on Jim Goodin's CD, and I am very pleased!

Solo guitar fingerstylist, "Open", impressionistic, guitar scapes.....also, some very well executed renditions of traditional O'Caralon tunes.

Jim is an emerging specialist in the acoustic fingerstyle genre'. Perhaps, one of the most creative and inpiring guitarists I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

I highly reccommend.
