We don’t like to drop names, but come on, Jimmy’s played with some pretty heavy hitters — everyone from Gato Barbieri, Pat Metheny, and Stanley Clarke to legends like Freddie Hubbard, Phyllis Hyman, Ramsey Lewis, and Stanley Turrentine. And that list only scratches the surface! It’s no wonder Jimmy Earl has earned his rightful place in the annals of jazz history. When Jamie Kime isn’t intimidating guitarists at his Monday-night gig co-hosting the jam at the Baked Potato in Studio City, California, he’s a sideman for Jewel, Michelle Branch, Zappa Plays Zappa, and Banned from Utopia. Kime is a consummate guitarist with a grounded sense of integrity who continues to explore the harmonic possibilities of the fretboard.

Thomas, co-wrote the 1992 No. 1 hit “How Do You Talk to an Angel” from the Fox TV series “The Heights” and won a Grammy for his production on Rod Stewart’s “Stardust… the Great American Songbook, Volume III.” Johnson is currently the music director for Debby Boone of “You Light Up My Life” fame and also is a pianist for the Clare Fischer Band, named for the longtime bandleader who died in 2012, although his son, Brent, has continued on the name. The group’s record “Ritmo!” won the 2013 Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album, which Johnson performed on. Along the way, Johnson has performed on “The Tonight Show,” “The Today Show,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “America’s Got Talent” and played at venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Buckingham Palace. However, Johnson said his greatest accomplishment has just been performing with the musicians he has performed with. “The thing I’m most proud of is the level I’ve attained, as far as the playing and the musicians who I play with regularly at the world-class level,” he said. “The day-to-day playing at the high level is what it is for me.”
