Album Notes

The talk box is a device that is used in conjunction with other instruments to produce a unique vocal sound. Peter Frampton and Joe Walsh used this device with guitars. Roger Troutman of the Zapp Band, used the device with a keyboard to create such hits as "So Ruff So Tuff", "More Bounce", "Computer Love", "I Want To Be Your Man", etc. The talk box is a device that JIM has mastered and uses extensively, along with his vocal and instrumental performances on his new CD release titled "Long Time Comin".

JIM's musical style can be described as a blend of R&B and Hip Hop. A mixture of old, new, and innovative. His rich vocals are reminiscent of Gerald Levert, Jeffrey Osborne, and sometimes have a character that you will come to recognize only as JIM. He mixes his vocal performances with talk box performances that are comparable to the one and only Roger Troutman.

JIM has been in the music industry for the past 20 years in the Tampa Bay, Florida area as a bass player, songwrtiter, producer, lead and background vocalist, talk boxer, and as a keyboard and drum machine programer. JIM single handedly wrote, performed, arranged, produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered his CD in his studio for his new record label, "Rescue Records". The CD is appropriately titled, because as JIM says, "This is something I should have done a long time ago, but I just didn't have the means".

JIM also states: "When I first heard the song "More Bounce" by Roger Troutman being played on the radio, I stopped what I was doing and listened to the whole song. I was so blown away, that from that moment, I made myself a promise that I would learn to emulate that sound. After Roger Troutman passed away, I made myself another promise that I would continue with the sound he established, and try to continue to please his fan base, as well as introduce new fans to the hauntingly beautiful sound of the talk box".

Three weeks after this CD's debut on CD Baby, it made the number 12, 7, and 4 spot on the CD Baby "Top Sellers Now" top sellers of the week list. People are buying this CD for a reason. They find at least one song on it that seems as if it were written specifically for their past, present, or hopeful future situation in life. JIM says..." 'Missumom' and 'Are U Ready' were written about the two most special women in my life. I wrote those songs, and I still get teary eyed when I hear them".

one word: excellent !!
This CD is complete with great songwriting skills. I'm a fan of the talkbox, and this artist uses this skill very well. "Slipping Away" and "Uneedsomame" are 2 of my favorites on this CD. A real gem for lovers of smooth ballads and talkbox.
