Jim is pictured here at the console in the recording booth of Sear Sound during the recording of Contrasts in March, 2015. Jim had been the head engineer and/or producer of thousands of recordings while running Nola Recording Studios in NYC for roughly 35 years. A gifted artist (engineer & pianist), he was one of the most gregarious and joyful people you could hope to meet. I was blessed to have Jim as a friend and for him to work on this project. He’s no longer with us and I miss him greatly. RIP my friend.
