Jimmy Burns – It Ain’t Right
Delmark DE 841 (2015)
A walk in the Delta with sanctified swagger, It Ain’t Right is a joyous culmination and testimonial to Jimmy’s vocal talent and musical gifts. Relevant and inspiring, these songs are loaded with a great sense of collective purpose. Other musicians may cover a tune, but his clear and soulful message and individual approach make any song directly his own, and Jimmy Burns our musical treasure. Jimmy is accompanied by his working band Anthony Palmer, guitar; Greg McDaniel, bass: Bryant “T” Parker, drums; with additional support from Sumito “Ariyo” Ariyoshi, piano; Roosevelt Purifoy, organ; Marques Carroll, trumpet; Chris Neal, tenor sax; Aaron Getsug, baritone sax. 15 songs include two new originals from Billy Flynn. Produced by Dick Shurman.
