Great Shots, Jeanie:

Quick question..What are Jimmy/Dee Dee/and Joe singing to? Did Mark already lay down some tracks on his computer?

Hi Alex,
Mark laid out the arrangements with him on piano, they did the rough cut music in Germany, the real musicians will play at the Los Angeles recording sessions.  We only had 'Joe' for this time as he leaves for N.J. for the summer soon to do "Celebrity Golf Tournaments" he's booked in for benefits. We had to record him right away, and 'Dee Dee' lives here in Vegas (Henderson) so we did her here too for that reason. 
 
StarKenny Barron will take over as M.D. in L.A. with an all-star cast of veteran jazz musicians. We just aquired David Sanborn too, he said he was honored to be asked to play on Jimmy's CD. Smile 
 
StarNew artist surprises added too but that's for later.Wink

I'm a little late but the pictures are excellent and Mr. Scott looks great!  Can't wait for you guys to come to a club near me.  Best wishes with the album.

Hi Nosey,
 
Thank you. 
 
Since 'Zanzibar Blue' closed in Philly, the nearest we will be playing to 'you' is in N.Y.C.  Maybe you & Pat can come down on our next trip.  That would be cool! Smile

          Jeanie,
      Your coverage of this session, and your photos
 are fantastic. It's almost like being there with you.
    History being made in real time, and you have
 provided us better views than we could have expected
 from media giants or any other sources.
       Your contribution at the Soulful Planet village is
 part of what makes this site so great and special.
      Mixey must be beaming with pride at this thread,
 and I am sure when she gets back on line, she will
 let you know that.
        It is so wonderful that I can set here near Detroit
 and see all that is going on out there with all your
 great photos and reporting. I am amazed ! Thank you
 so much for thinking of all of us here, and spending
 so much of your hectic schedule to make this thread
  so great. Your the best !Smile
 
 toad
Down, and nearly out in Detroit......

Hi toad,
WOW! Thank you for the kudo's, that was very nice reading.   Much appreciated.
 I will have a 'little' more time for the next two weeks, lol, before Ralf gets back here to go into the studio again with Jimmy.  Then we will go see David Sanborn's Show at the South Point Hotel & Casino for he & Jimmy to be filmed together for Jimmy's documentary.
 
I do hope MIXEY is doing okay and we will see her back here real soon!
 
S.S.

Cool..When I told the head of my jazz dept at NYU that I would be playing with Jimmy, he played me a track of David Sanborn's 'Pearls' where Jimmy sings an amazing version of 'For All We Know', I was blown away..Then a few weeks later I heard Sanborn play at Fathead Newman's memorial where he blew the roof of the place with an amazing rendition of 'Hard Times'..Sanborn is a monster..

Alex,
Some of Jimmy's "guest tracks" for other Artists simply blow me away. "For All We Know" is one of my faves and I love the way David blows on his solo on that tune.  I also love very much "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" Jimmy did with Clint Eastwood at Carnegie Hall for Clint's album, awesome track!
 
Alex, we really wish "Fathead" was still with us to play on this CD, he will be missed.
 
StarHere are some of the musicians on board:
 
Kenny Barron ~ Piano & Musical Director (Played on Jimmy's Grammy Nominated "All The Way" album).  Jazz Master.
 
Terry Gibbs ~ Vibes  (Terry is 85 years old now! Jimmy always loved the Vibes since his Lionel Hampton days. Terry played on Jimmy's Roost/Royal Roost 78 Records in 1951 & 52!). Jazz Master.
 
James Moody ~ Saxophone (Moody is 84 years old, 4 months older than Jimmy! This Jazz Master & Jimmy go waaaay back).
 
David Sanborn ~ Saxophone ~ (Jimmy "guest starred" on David's "Pearls" CD on "For All We Know").
 
Hubert Laws ~ Flute  (Jazz Master).
 
Oscar Castro-Neves ~ Acoustic Guitar (From the book of who's who, lol, played with Jimmy on Minister Louis Farrakhan's CD on "When I Fall In Love").  Jazz Master.
 
John Pisano - Guitar (Played on Jimmy's Grammy Nominated "All The Way" album).
 
Gregoire` Maret ~ Harmonica (Played with Jimmy's Band & on Jimmy's Milestone/Fantasy CD's).
 
Thomas Lauderdale ~ Piano (Pink Martini)  Jimmy "guest recorded" on Pink Martini's CD with China Forbes on "Tea For Two".
 
Till Broenner ~ Trumpet
 
*Hilliard Greene ~ Bass  (From Jimmy's Band "The Jazz Expressions").
 
*Dwayne "Cook" Broadnax ~ Drums (From Jimmy's Band).
 
*T.K. Blue ~ Saxophone & Flute (From Jimmy's Band).
 
*The members of Jimmy's Quartet also played on some of his Milestone/Fantasy tracks that were produced by Todd Barkan.
 
MAYBE:
 
Chris Boti ~ Trumpet
 
Joey De Francesco ~ Hammond B3  (Greatest Living Organist is now on board!)
 
Plus others (lol) in L.A. ~ TBA. (Perhaps a big surprise!!!)Big%20smile

Yup dream,
It's something else the way things change from day to day by leaps and bounds.  Whomever commits first that's who we will record first. Smile It's growing so, we may have two CD's in the making.
 
The L.A. leg will be big fun!!! Cool if you can come out for a few days and make "Vibrato" & the 'Pool Party-Jam Session'. I am looking foward to this and seeing everyone who will take part in the recording sessions. This is the kind of work I love as exhausting as it can be, lol. Jimmy will enjoy seeing everyone, this is so good for his spirit, I could already see that in his 'smile' during the Vegas session.

We first met "Ralf Kemper" on our European Tour two and a half years ago in Milano, Italy at Jimmy's "Blue Note Club" appearance.  Ralf 's company does alot of television shows and commercials.  His studios are located in Dusseldorf, Germany. After Ralf saw Jimmy's live performance he sort of followed us around, Ralf & his business partner Andre` also showed up at Jimmy's shows at 'Theater' gig in Vienna, Austria and at 'The New Morning' in Paris, France.
 
So Ralf being a record producer, etc...became a fan of Jimmy's gets our email addy thru the website and contacts me with a song he wrote he thought would fit Jimmy's personality and spirit about life. I told him there were no plans to record Jimmy at this time and I also told him about 3-CD projects I had been planning for a few years now.
 
One was a solo album about our love story from beginning to end, the representative songs that Jimmy wanted to record to me. That was the main one. Together Jimmy & I had the songs picked out for a very long time for the CD
"I Remember You".
 
The second one was an idea I had about a CD titled "Jimmy Scott & All The Ladies That Love Him" which would of been his female peers that were influenced by him and the songs they recorded he did from early in his career, to record them together.  I had the songs picked out on this one too.
 
The third one was a "Duets CD" with "Name Artists" who also admired Jimmy, this was something another producer and I had discussed doing four years ago but it did not come to fruition at that time. 
I sent Ralf my list of songs from 'my Jimmy wish list I wrote up ten years ago' for Artists to pick from. As long as we had the music done on each one at the time a particular artist became involved.
 
So this new CD came out of my 3 conceptions and sort of morphed into one Tongue.
 
After emailing back and forth, then talking on the phone for numerous hours overseas, Ralf & I came to an agreement about doing Jimmy's CD to me called "I Remember You" and now it has morphed into duets too and possibly another CD later on for release at a future date.
 
Jimmy & I both wanted for him to do these songs for so long and now it's finally going to happen, we are very excited about that.
 
Here is a photo taken at that time of "Ralf & Jimmy" meeting at the Milano Blue Note:

More great shots, S.S.!Thumbs%20Up
 
I have to say I think this is one of the best threads ever on SP.
 
As a fan of music, I am loving this treat of feeling like I'm a part of all the excitement surrounding this recording session.
 
The photos are superb and your descriptions always take me on a pleasant trip.
 
Keep it coming, S.S., and you know no one is happier for you and Jimmy than I am.
 
This record in particular is long overdue and the fact it reflects yours and Jimmy's love story makes it all the more special to me.Big%20smile
