The new CD was released on April 17, 2007 on Jazz Excursion Records! “Hidden Intentions” was chosen as one of the “Top Ten Jazz CD’s of 2007” by the Boston Globe, and was also listed in the “Critics Picks, Top Jazz CD’s of 2007” by Jazz Times.
This recording features all new compositions (10 of them!), along with my favorite musicians that I've been playing with over the past few years.

Jim, the “author”

Lately, I’ve been fortunate enough to be a contributing author for Down Beat magazine. My first article, “Chris Potter’s Tenor Sax Solo on ‘This Will Be,’” was in the August ’02 issue. Since then, I have written two more articles, one on Warne Marsh, the other on Seamus Blake, which are pending publication. My master’s thesis, “Stylistic Aspects in the Improvisations of Tenor Saxophonist Warne Marsh” is currently seeking publication.
