ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jimmi Accardi is a singer, songwriter, musician, and performer. As a teenager, he played backup guitar for such hit-makers as The Classics ("Till Then"), The Moonglows ("Sincerely"), The Belmonts ("Where or When"), and The Regents ("Barbara Ann"). Later he toured as the guitarist for Chubby Checker.
Jimmi worked as a session guitarist for Rupert Holmes ("Escape" -the Pina Colada song) on the album entitled Rupert Holmes. He also recorded with Harry Nilsson.
Jimmi's own group, The Laughing Dogs, enjoyed two critically acclaimed albums on Columbia Records (The Laughing Dogs and The Laughing Dogs Meet Their Makers) with original songs in the Billboard picks.
Jimmi toured as lead guitarist for Mickey Dolenz and Davey Jones of The Monkees. He also was lead guitarist for the Eddy Dixon Band, and played with Evan Lurie (The Lounge Lizards).
Jimmi's experience making records included working with producers Bruce Botnik and Eddie Kramer. Jimmi himself produced and engineered records for hit rap artists Scott LaRock and Boogie Down Productions, Ultra Magnetic, and KRS 1.
On the Rockin' & Jumpin' CD, Jimmi returns to his roots, with original rock and roll, rockabilly, and jump blues tunes. Jimmi's vocals and lead guitar are accompanied by his band The Wild Cats.

Reviews:
"Jimmi has a great voice, he plays a mean guitar, and his band The Wild Cats are absolutely a rockin' band to reckon with. . . . I really dig Jimmi's uptempo blues licks." -- Marijn Raaijmakers, BlackCat Rockabilly Europe

"I wanted to let you know that I received the new Jimmi Accardi CD. It sounds fantastic! Not only does it demonstrate his skills as a performer, but I was amazed at his writing talent. I will add the music to the station this weekend." -- Don Freeman, Rockabilly Radio

"Jimmi Accardi is no paint-by-numbers retro rocker. He obviously studied the rockabilly style with all of its nuances and subtleties, and turned out an album that stands up respectably to the original music. Jimmi evokes a much truer sound with his instrumentation and delivery than groups who cashed in on the rockabilly craze of the 80's (Stray Cats, Blasters, etc.). With the swing band revival well beyond saturation, Jimmi may lead the way for a rockabilly rebirth in the new millenium. . . . Overall, the album has that warm feeling of tube amps, reel-to-reel tape, and a small studio on the back streets of Memphis. Had the late Carl Perkins lived just a few more years to hear this, he would have undoubtedly embraced Jimmi Accardi as a kindred musical spirit." -- Steve Cagle, New Soul Revival

"Jimmi shows how skilled a guitarist he is. . . . A fine album." -- Gaby Maag-Bristol, Blue Suede News

"A master of 50's based pop music. . . . a compelling package this writer can heartily recommend. . . . it sure is a lot of fun." -- Brian Augustine, Sierra Blues Society

"Si vous aimez le bon r'n'b jive des 40's / 50's, voilá un album qui vous plaira car il y a plein de cela sur ce CD de guitariste / chanteur californien, dont "Dance my blues away" ou "Don't break my heart", trés sautillant. "Promises of love" et "Suffer" bien r'n'b néo-orléanais, un instrumental bien rock'n'roll avec "Twang time", un titre trés Little Richard, "I'm goin' crazy for you, baby", et une superbe ballade médium 50's, "The price of love" (pas le titre des Everlys)." - Bernard Boyat, Le Cri du Coyote and Rock'n'Roll Revue

Wow! Was impressed. Loved the style. Loved the sound.
Heard 1 track from the CD on Live365.com and searched for it. Found it on CD Baby with some sample tracks. Listened to them and it just wailed! Style and sound on this CD just makes you want to listen over and over.
