Album Notes
I first met Jim Horn in the studios when I started doing
sessions in Los Angeles. His friendly face and great playing
was something you could always look forward to when working in the studio with Jim. He's still just as much in demand as ever as a top session player and his track record for playing on hits is second to none. I remember his beautiful sax on Neil Sedaka's "Laughter In The Rain", his flute on
Canned Heat's "Goin' Up The Country", and his distinctive
horn parts on the Grammy award winning "Age Of Aquarius" and
'Up Up And Away", as well as Smokey Robinson's "Tears Of A Clown",Frank Sinatra's "Strangers In The Night",Toto's
"Rosanna", and Elton John's "Little Jeanie" He also recorded
with Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Steeley Dan, The Beatles, Tina Turner, the Rolling Stones and many others. He was also featured on the HBO special "Live in
Central Park" with Garth Brooks and Billy Joel. Jim still travels from coast to coast as well as around the world doing live performances and recording sessions. It's been such a pleasure being back in the studio with Jim,
Louie Shelton.

Jim fans from the rock music crowd please be careful: This is for smooth jazz lo
Jim Horn is my favorite sax player. Every song that has Jim on tenor sax or baritone sax is a good song. He's well known as a session musician, so most of his work is on other people's records. It's only on occasion that he has stepped out into the spotlight himself during his long career in music. Since he releases his own material on cdbaby, he's done it five times so far: The Hit List consists of his versions of the hits he was featured on (you will want to dig for the original versions, if you don't have them already); A Tribute To John Denver is him superbly covering his friend and former band boss; Christmas with Jim Horn has him bringing out both the reflective and the joyous Christmas spirit not only with sax but with woodwinds as well, and even his old friend Duane Eddy makes a guest appearance (highly recommended); while A Beatles Tribute features Jim's pop music sound.
Northern Reflections is the only disc of the 5 that has original songs co-written by Jim Horn. It's not his Memphis Horn arrangements that you hear here. This is a smooth jazz record, which features him mainly on soprano sax, so the cover photo might be a bit irritating. Louie Shelton guests with his funky guitar. Funk and smooth jazz might seem like a contradiction, but on this record it all works out smoothly. It's just that the record does not benefit from the use of drum computers. Best tracks are Alter Ego and Diamond Jim. To be honest I'd love to hear Jim Horn do an instrumental rock/Memphis soul record of his own songs next time around.
