ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JIMMY SPENCER VOCALIST,ACTOR, MUSICIAN

On this CD, "A SONG FOR YOU", Jimmy does it all. His deep velvet tones proves without a doubt he is a balladeer extraordinaire. The ballads along with a little blues, country and jazz make this a CD for listening, and relaxing. A CD I know you will enjoy *********

JIMMY SPENCER started his professional career after an honorable discharge from the Navy when he formed his own band and played the Cotton Club in Oklahoma City.

Harold Austin, leader of a traveling band, persuaded Jimmy to give up his own band, leave Oklahoma City, and travel with his group as the featured vocalist. After a year with Harold Austin, Jimmy moved back to California, and joined a group called the Multi-Sounds and worked the Playboy Circuit for one year, before deciding to become a single.

Influenced by the late great Nat King Cole, Spencer developed a smooth relaxed style and a polished act. Even the great Tony Bennett was amazed at Jimmy's style and performance while catching his act at Monteleone's West.

It was worth the wait!
It was worth the wait for the mailman. I really loved this CD. It has a varied selection of material; beautiful ballads, blues, country and jazz. It is great listening for an evening of relaxing. I especially liked "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good" and "I keep going back to Joe's". Keep up the great music! Waiting for the next CD installment from Mr. Spencer.

What more could I ask for. I especially liked I Got It Bad (and That Ain't Good) and If You Ever Leave Me. Looking forward to more from Jimmy Spencer.

Jimmy Spencer - What deep mellow tones-I was lost in the beautiful ballads.
Just browsing the CD's available and ran across this one by Jimmy Spencer. He has such a beautiful mellow tone and such an assortment, something for everyone's taste. I'm sure I'll be playing it over and over again. Ballads and blues - what more could I ask for. The ballads are so romantic and would certainly put anyone in a mood for a relaxing evening, a glass of wine, soft lights and this CD by Jimmy Spencer. I hope there are more CD's in the works for this artist. Way to go Jimmy!

SENSATIONAL...
While browsing I ran across this sensational find. A wonderful, expressive velvet voice - that's Jimmy Spencer. Singing everything from love to heartache, jazz and blues - what more could I ask for. The musical background is such a compliment to the sounds of Spencer.
I will listen and listen and listen....Thanks Jimmy!

The man's tellin' it
This CD has a subtle way of pulling the listener in quite easily. The lean studio production enables Jimmy Spencer's wonderful emotional style to be center stage and that's such a good choice! This man has stories to tell and isn't holding back in any way. The tune choices are meaty. Love it.

How romantic. Loved the ballads and the storytelling...
A great CD for anyone. A good collection of songs from a very talented singer - Jimmy Spencer. I really loved the ballads and he sings them just as if he is telling a story. What warmth! Being from England, I hadn't heard of Jimmy Spencer before and thought I'd give his CD a listen. It's fantastic and well worth it. More please Jimmy!
