TUM, 2014, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Jim Pembroke plays piano, sings and composed all of the music and Utica for If The Rain Comes. The music is popular, soft rock ballads dedicated to the late producer Henrick Otto Donner. The band is a quintet with Pedro Hietanen (B3, p, accordion), Jukka Orma (g), Ulf Krokfors (b) and Mika Kallio (d, perc). There are several sentimental tunes that mirror the bond between Donner and Pembroke. It is a good set backed by excellent liner notes and photos.
