ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jim Bestman has spent a lifetime in the music business as a performer, creator, teacher, and sideman. In college days, he led the Jim Bestman Octet which made it all the way to Downbeat magazine as an up an coming band. Then Jimmy decided to go into public school teaching where he spent 34 years. All this time, he continued as a professional union musician, sharing with his students at school ideas he had picked up from other fellow professionals. When Mayor Jane Byrne of Chicago set up her New Year's spectacular, Jimmy's Bavarians was born. Previous to this Jimmy had been working as a sideman with the Chicago King of German Bands, Walter Flechsig. Jimmy's Bavarians continues to the present day, as well as Jimmy's creativity, including "Ridin' Shotgun On A Beer Truck", "Dan the Shoeshine Man", "Ya Gotta Have A Tuba In An Oompah Band", and an upside down melodrama about New Orleans turned upside down in the musical "Zoey". Jimmy was recently written up in the American Federation of Musicians magazine "The International", for his long career in the music business and as a union member in Chicago Local 10208 and Joliet Local 37. His music keeps him going!
