Album Notes
“At the Water’s Edge,” you’ll find a place where one world ends and another begins, both blending in perfect harmony, each providing what the other so desperately needs. Music and water share in a cleansing potential that can quench a parched soul upon immersion. Like the rocks of the shoreline, traditional acoustic music has stood solid against the ever changing waves of cultural trends. May the listener be refreshed and discover their own unique, personal treasures “At the Water’s Edge.”

Jim Cornwell’s “At the Water’s Edge” is an acoustic, instrumental compilation of traditional bluegrass and Irish fiddle tunes combined with other familiar folk tunes played on exquisite, acoustic steel string guitars and mandolins. This is Jim’s third release following last year’s “Lost in the Woods” CD. Besides playing several medleys of various fiddle tunes, Jim also included some familiar classics that are not normally heard played on acoustic guitar or mandolin, such as The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, Dixie and Amazing Grace. Jim composed the refreshing title track, "At the Water's Edge," and also wrote the tune “Old Eagle." Based on his best selling “Pachabel Canon in D” from his "Lost in the Woods" CD, Jim arranged Bach’s Minuet in G for those listeners who enjoy hearing the classics being performed on guitar and mandolin.

Jim plays lead and rhythm using carefully selected, premium instruments made by Collings, Martin, Santa Cruz and Gibson. The hand selected tone woods and flawless craftsmanship of these instruments insure that the listener can meticulously hear the beauty in the music that the composer intended. Fans of this style of music will not be disappointed, and new listeners will be pleasantly surprised and discover why this type of music continues to survive century after century.

Worthy of all honors, some of the best picking....
This latest offering from Jim Cornwell is far and away his best compilation yet. Do you have that urge to search for the Master of Guitar? Look no further. This C/D will blow away your friends and has more than a few songs for soul searching in the morning, with a hot cup of Java. A true masterpiece!

Mark Harris

A master guitarist and mandolin player in top form.
Like Cornwell’s two other fine discs, At the Water’s Edge showcases a master guitarist and mandolin player in top form. We get the precision picking we’ve come to expect from Cornwell, the burning hot licks that blow through Mixolydian Medley, the sweet fingerstyling that puts a new shine on America the Beautiful (a truly underappreciated classic). What impresses most about this collection, however – besides the range of styles Cornwell tackles (from Irish jigs to spirituals, via Bach, whoa!) – it’s the two compositions Cornwell penned himself. The lovely, fast-moving title track is worthy of Doc Watson, and the guitar slides and sure mandolinin’ on Old Eagle put this happy tune up there with Cornwell’s best. May there be many more to come!

Jimmy, just when I thought it couldn\'t get any better, it does. I can\'t wait until you quit the day job and go pro. What a beautifully played masterpiece. I am always looking forward to the next. Humboldt county is truly blessed with such a fine musician. Thanks again Jimmy!

real music!
I love this cd. I keep it in my car and listen to it often, especially when I get tired of the clutter and dissonance of much of contemporary music. Jim's grounding in the classics gives a haunting edge to no matter what kind of music he plays. Thanks a lot for your work, Jim.
