Red, the third studio project in five years for Jimmie, has several noteworthy firsts on it. Jimmie was joined in the studio by his full band; this allowed them to capture the energy that they play with live. Jim Gaines joined Jimmie at the helm to produce this CD, Jim is known for his work with Carlos Santana and Stevie Ray Vaughn, among many others.
Jimmie seems to have found himself evermore comfortable in is own skin in fact he describes himself in this record in this way, “I really feel like this record is me being myself”. That feeling is portrayed all through out the project Red finds a maturity and soul brought forth not only in Jimmie’s voice but in his guitar work as well, Jimmie found a new voice on “RED” and it is a voice that billows from deep inside him, as he passionately blurs the line between Blues, Rock and Jazz.
