Album Notes
Warren Kime has lived a full and interesting musical life. He has been a brass player, singer, big band leader, music producer, composer. arranger and now a jazz recorder player.

Warren studied recorder at the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago with George Olson, a premier recorder teacher. He eventually formed the New Cambrian Society Recorder Quartet with Roberta Sweet. The Quartet played concerts, performed in colleges throughout the Midwest and in commercials. They recorded an album called \"Ripples\". In 2003 Warren formed the Recorder Jazz Quartet and recorded a CD of his original music called \"Recorder Jazz\". He was backed by veteran jazz players George Mazzeo (drums), Gary Mayone (piano) and Don Coffman (bass). The May issue of the American Recorder Magazine described this new CD as \"original jazz charts with a great groove\".

Warren comes from a musical family. His father, Charles Kime, put a cornet into his hands and started teaching him how to play solos. Charles Kime was a concert band leader who played cornet with John Phillip Sousa\'s band and traveled across Iowa teaching music to city bands. Warren\'s grandfather, Warren Winfield Scott Kime III, was a composer, concert violinist and piano teacher.

During World War II, Warren was a member of the 392nd Special Service Orchestra which took the place of the Glen Miller Band. He played radio shows and toured throughout Europe. A number of years later, Warren completed a 2 year tour of duty during the Korean conflict where he was musical director of Special Service Show \"Take Ten\". They performed over 360 shows for the troops there.

After serving in the armed forces, Warren alternated attending Northwestern University on the GI Bill and playing with name bands around the country. Then he joined the CBS staff orchestra in Chicago under the direction of Caesar Petrillo where he performed on television and radio shows for 6 years. As a free-lance trumpeter and singer, Warren performed in many radio and television commercials, record dates and industrial shows. He was also principal trumpet for the Arie Crown Theatre Orchestra in Chicago and the Metropolitan Brass Quintet of Chicago.

He has played on over 75 albums for various artists and has recorded many albums of his own, including a very successful hit series of big band albums for Command Records in New York. They were the \"Brass Impact\", \"Explosive Brass Impact\" and \"Goin\' Someplace\" for which he created with his arranger, Brad Morey, the concept of mixing female voices with brass and reed instruments. Among his many albums, he has recorded a small jazz group album entitled \"Jazz\", a piano and flueghorn album entitled \"Songs for a Sophisticated Lady\" (which received an outstanding review in Billboard Magazine), and a CD entitled \"Concerto for 2\".

Warren has been a clinician/consultant for Getzen, G. LeBlanc and Holton band instrument companies.

Internationally famous, Warren has recorded with such outstanding artists as Nat King Cole, Jack Teagarten, Stan Getz, Quincy Jones, Doc Severinsen, Skitch Henderson, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughn, Perry Como, Dick Haymes, Barry Manilow, Peter Nero, Vickie Carr, Dianne Carrol, and with the big bands of Ralph Marterie, Ray Anthony, Tex Beneke and many, many more. He has performed in concert with jazz greats such as Dizzie Gillespie, Teddy Wilson, Earl \"Father\" Hines, Bob Crosby, Louis Bellson, Pearl Bailey, Mel Torme just to name a few.

Recorder Jazz
Great! Here in Europe one is just starting to detect the recorder as a fantastic jazz instrument.
Warren Kime is a great player, and there are very fine arrangements!Thank you!

Listening pleasure galore for any recorder enthusiast! Brilliantly done!
The "recorder jazz" sound produced by Kime is magnificent. Well balanced and easy on the ear. This is excellent music that should be a very good 'flagship' sound to anyone who doubt whether recorders are good for anything else than "twinkle, twinkle, little star". This is a fresh, renewed start of a very good future for recorders in the jazz arena.

Very nice recorder work! Only jazz recorder I've heard.
This is a great jazz CD and a great recorder CD. To have both in one package is unique to my knowledge. The tunes are all original compositions and are just that - original. I haven't heard anybody else use the recorder in this way and as a beginning recorder player, I found it very inspirational.

David Van Syoc

Astounding recorder ...
I've played trumpet and am working on recorder, trying to work the recorder into more jazzy, contemporary performances. Warren Kime is the one and only person to show me the way! I could not find ONE cd by a bonafide jazz player, who understood both the jazz idiom and how to get those kinds of sounds and expressiveness--- UNTIL THIS ONE. Thank you so much, Warren. I mean it...


Great album + This man deserves more recognition for his body of work....
This album is a fantastic reason why this guy deserves to be on Wikipedia. Perhaps he is too modest, but Warren really deserves more recognition for his body of work, from his experiences in the Big Band era right to his fantastic series of Brass Impact album that he did for Command records in the late Sixties and early Seventies to this album and "Butterfly", which needs to be offered as a CD!

Somebody please get Warren's birthdate and complete discography and biography and put him on Wilipedia where he belongs so the rest of the world can know about this great artist and his body of work!

'deed I do
Fell in love with your Trumpet playing years ago at my brother's home. He had your album that he had gotten at a Jazz Festival on the west coast Sorry but I taped it as he had no idea where to ge one. One of the tunes on it was "Ican't Get Started with you" I Played it again today and got on the Internet and found you. I listened to it on the Internet, so I have just ordered 3 CDs, one to send to my Brother Charlie Brown.He collects jazz as do I. I would love to have other albums or CDs. Just let me know where I can get them and the Titles.

Great artist and very creative...
Breaking into new area with very creative sounds on instrument not used a great deal in Jazz. Very up-lifting sound and good for the spirit. Have known this artist a long time and he keeps opening new territories with his talent. Love this CD....

Rod Snedeker

Great recording!
For people interested in the recorder, this breaks new ground. It demonstrates that the recorder can play contemporary music, Jazz in particular, and does not have to be limited to early music. This is our second copy. We bought it to give to a friend and fellow ARS member.
