This music presents a very full, rich sound, with soft rock rhythms and melodies blending together into a musical whole. 'Dreams of Compassion' is a haunting melody with minor strains and a gentle rhythm. 'Johannesburg' is more upbeat with a peppery fusion sound. The lilting, tinkling sound patterns of 'Rainforest People' give an impression of light and shadow. 'Jim is aware of events near and far, he speaks of them through his music. We hear a signal in Jim's music of what is happening and what might come. This music creates a personal connection between composer, listener, and the world which will touch your heart and enliven your spirit...' Bob Naujoks, KCCK-FM 88.3.
