ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When most people think about Christmas, they visualize falling snow, a deep chill in the air and a cozy, roaring fireplace, but Jimmy – who has lived in Southeast Texas most of his life – thinks about spending Christmas in short sleeves, enjoying the unique opportunity for some fun in the sun that many folks in the U.S. can only dream about.
Jimmy, along with producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Dixon Shanks, thinks one of the great joys of indie music making is the opportunity to step outside the confines of the urban jazz genre and spread the seasonal cheer in a multitude of styles from track to track. Kevin Paige added the 'Memphis' touch on tracks 1,4,5, and 7. He asked longtime collaborator Eric Chinn to engineer and also guest, playing piano and programming on the 4 originals.

"Christmas songs bring us to a place of nostalgia, where we think of being a kid opening presents, having dinner with our families and creating wonderful memories. I grew up loving all the songs I recorded and I’m proud of the work we did to create a few new holiday standards. I hope you enjoy this unique album for years to come" - Jimmy Simmons
