Tale of Two: Jim & Joey

by Jim Stricklan

Stunning collection of smooth jazz originals - both instrumental and vocal - in a buffet flowing from dreamy seaside samba, to sweet slow-dance, to smoldering blues, climaxing with a latin-style version of the Gerswhin classic "Summertime".

Album Notes
It's been an honor having Joey Colarusso, a creative, consummate professional, play on my albums over two decades, and a blessing to have developed a genuine friendship with such a humble, caring individual. The JIM & JOEY CD project is a celebration of that friendship, with a curated collection of the best tracks Joey and I have teamed up on. It's my way to say THANKS to one of Texas' most gifted players, Joey Colarusso!

I’m proud of all these 8 vocal and 2 instrumental collaborations, and especially excited to be sharing our most recent tracks, Fresher Air and, my arrangement of the Gershwin classic, Summertime. More than that, you’ll discover as soon as you hear the whole album, that the songs flow from one to the next better than any record I’ve made. A lot of that has to do with the sensibility of all the players involved and the comfort zone we’ve achieved from playing together through the years.

What people are saying about this CD:
"Jim Stricklan has knocked it out of the park!"
"Joey's saxophone puts me right in the zone."
"Maryann Price totally delivers on the flirtatious soft-shoe "To Whom it May Concern"."
["I'm Reelin'"] has the timeless feel of Johnny Mercer or Sippy Wallace".
"The big bonanza is Jim's spanish-style arrangement of Gershwin's "Summertime", with Joey's soaring sax, Kyle's sexy latin guitar and Candace Bellamy's vocals sweet yet earthy like eating figs and dates."
