Album Notes
The following is a quote which appeared in Cadence about Shannon's last CD.
“Bright and free wheeling and full of the blusey accents that can't help but
bring a smile to your face" "A fun bent note swagger in his playing.”
This quote sums up quite well that the Blues influence is prevalent in
Jim’s playing. Given the fact that he had his own rhythm and blues group in
high school, this is not surprising. He still has the green tux jacket to prove
it. The following years of working with B3 organ groups only helped to
reinforce this influence and may help explain the “bent not swagger." There
are three blues forms on this CD, all are Jim’s compositions. The first piece
on the CD is the title tune “Out of the Blue” which demonstrates some of
the influence afore mentioned. Notice the fine solo work of Bassist Seaton and
the clever fours of Drummer Griffith. Number four on the CD is a medium
tempo Blues which demonstrates Shannon's versatility via finger style solo
guitar. The catchy Three Four for Flo was penned in honor of Flo Green
who was leader of one of the first B3 Organ groups Jim worked with. We
know she is smiling. And we hope you smile as much listening to this CD
as we did in bringing it to you.
