TP Recordings, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: There’s a spirited bounce in this groove, starting with the staccato approach on “I’m Getting Sentimental Over You”. Jimmy’s tendonitis only allows him to play for brief moments each month. It took 5 years to make this album! While grooving on the burners, he’s peacefully smooth when the pace slows down on tunes like his own “Gone But Not Forgotten”. This CD is a tribute to Sinatra, a man with impeccable time and pace throughout his career. Amadie hits a similar stride on piano, engaging listeners and keeping their attention.
