TESTIMONIALS

Jim is without a doubt one of the preeminent drummers currently active on the Canadian roots music scene.  He is full of creative ideas that benefit each and every session he appears on.

Andrew Galloway

"Jim's incomparable blues shuffle and infectious groove will bend your ears the first time you hear him play. An inspiring musician with decades of experience and accolades, I highly recommend any of Jim's recorded performances to any drummer who's serious about playing music for a living!"

"Whether it is listening with the ears of an orchestral percussionist or chasing down the complexity of a big band chart, Jimmy has the tools to make it seem completely under control.  Jimmy lays down the law and order every performance requires."

J. Richard Hutt
Record producer / owner Cedartree Recording Studio

"I recall seeing Jimmy play a shuffle in Toronto one night, and I remember at the time thinking this has to be the best left hand shuffle groove I have ever heard! The band was so locked in the groove, and it all came from his left hand. He was smokin’ that night and he's burning these days!"

Dave Rundle

"I was so moved by his groove...he is one of those professionals that when you´ve seen him play once you want to experience it again.  And if you haven´t, I´m telling you, you should."
