ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Composer / Musician Jim Couchenour traveled extensively with Contemporary Christian Band Deliverance, recording two releases with them before embarking on a brief solo career.

Jim joined Alternative Christian Funk band, SounDoctrine in 2003 and began traveling and recording with the group, releasing his solo debut CD, Living Colour in October 2004.

He serves his congregation at New Hope Community Church and held the position of Worship Leader from 1996 thru 2002. Jim and The New Hope Worship Team recorded and released 'Warehouse Praise'in 1999. He is presently Director of Marketing & Ministry Services with Cogun,
Inc.

Jim and Lynette, his wife of 22 years are the proud parents of Katie, 19 and Jamie, 18. His hobbies include making rustic furniture, computer graphic arts, writing dramas, creating music, reading western novels, running & drinking Chai tea.

Jim Couchenour has lived with a condition known as Tourette's syndrome since he was very young. This condition is a neurological disorder that causes vocal grunts, ticks, and in severe cases, outbursts of inappropriate language.

He lived with a mild form of Tourettes for 26 years before
discovering what it actually was. His instrumental composition, 'Tourette's Tribute,' from the Living Colour CD is a celebration of the fact that you can have Tourettes Syndrome and stil lead a healthy, normal life. Many of the
percussion sounds in the song mimc the actual vocal manifestations of Tourettes.

Jim knows how to make music the message!
"In an impoverished world of half-hearted vocals, there are rare moments when the music is allowed to speak for itself.
It speaks wisdom, compassion and - above all - joy, in this new album from Jim Couchenour.
It's a record to hum with, dance to, contemplate and – at times - cry with.
With skill and command of the instruments, Jim knows how to make music the message."

Fresh and original, with layers of depth, meaning, spirit, & soul
When you read the liner notes of Jim Couchenour's new release, "Living Colour," and you discover than one man not only wrote, arranged, and played keyboard on all of the tracks, but also recorded, mixed, engineered, and co-produced the project (with some vocal and guitar work thrown in for good measure), you are floored by his ability to do all of these tasks so dazzlingly well. Listening to "Living Colour" reminds me of why I love Indie Projects. With the rise of the Indie market, Jim Couchenour's brilliance can be shared with the entire world and the world is a better place for it.

Co-produced by fellow SounDoctrine band member, Jere B, "Living Colour" is a swirling fusion of jazz and funk reminiscent of Chic Corea and Jeff Lorber's finest work. But make no mistake, Jim Couchenour's work is fresh and original, with layers of depth, meaning, spirit, and soul. Jim's passionate keyboard stylings and Jere B's consistently tight drum work set a backdrop for inspired sax solos from guest saxophonists, James Herrod, Jr., and Mike Austin. Phil The Beat on bass guitar, Scott Erskine on electric guitar, Kim Hines on percussion, and Susan Flynn on background vocals blend seamlessly into Jim's artistic vision, enhancing the flavor of this musical feast for the ears.

On Track 2, "Meadow Games," Jim intros the track by saying, "I always wanted to have me a record album." Well, Jim, I always wanted to have me a record album like "Living Colour." It's a pleasure to make it a prominent part of my collection.
