Four years ago today, I started a improvisational group with Mark Little that by the second incarnation became known as the NC Rhythm Project. My intent is to use different musicians (from across North Carolina) to create a improvisational performance that is both rhythm and melodically based. It is the type of situation that causes each musician to use their ears and experience as a guide as to when to play, when to remain silent and when to solo or groove. It is challenging to keep it up for a sustained time but is certainly doable. I want to play with people that I feel comfortable with and people that I also enjoy their personal contributions to the music. Please come out and see the newest incarnation of the NC Rhythm Project. We will be performing at the Oasis in Carr Mill Mall in Carrboro on June 18 at 8:00. I hope to see you there~!

“I love what Jim has done for my projects. He is like a great chef who can season any dish. He has dedicated his life to the world of music and bring experience to every project. He has the ears of an artist and can paint with the brush strokes of percussion.”
