ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Turning Point is Jim's best work to date. The cut "Into The Storm" climbed into the top 40 of the National Smooth Jazz charts and spent several weeks there. This project was produced by smooth jazz staple Ken Navarro and features some of the best musicians in the country.

Jim is an award winning songwriter/guitarist. His most notable award was placing 2nd in the International BILLBOARD SONG CONTEST in jazz. He also won nine awards for compositions in a Va. based contest V.O.C.A.L.
Starting out as a rock style guitarist, his love for smooth jazz developed later when he heard guitarists such as Larry Carlton, Lee Rittenour and George Benson just to name a few. Since then he has been on a musical path releasing three cds in that genre. His guitar style is evident of rock, country, pop and jazz.

Music ambiance that sets the mood - very smooth Jazz without the analysis
Jim Adkins: Turning Point is a taste of sophistication easy to the ear and offers the listener a variety - depths or levels of Rhythm, with the emergence of melodies.
The mood is set for the mind to relax accompanied by a variety of tones from the sax, an Indulgence.
