It's About Time
To say that Jim De Julio has been 'around the block' would be an understatement. He's a bass player, and one of the very best jazz has to offer. Jim has been part of many musical cornerstones working the New York Streets with the likes of Chet Baker, Sonny Stitt, Earl Garner, Lee Konitz and Hank Jones. Jim was also the bass player with Frank Sinatra. A common element in Jim's playing is melody - something not all bass players are proficient in using. As Jim states 'Learn the melody well, not just how to play it, but play it with your heart. Then when you want to improvise you can do anything.' Jim was recently inducted into the Pittsburgh Jazz Society Hall of Fame. If you buy CD's, watch TV or go to the movies you've probably heard of Jim De Julio. Catch Jim on MySpace.com/JimDeJulio.
