Jim Cohen is probably best known for his authentic western swing
stylings with Beats Walkin' (or maybe for his
'acceptable' wisecracks on the Steel Guitar Forum), but this wonderfully
smooth album of jazz and pop standards shows another side of Jim
- a rich, modern sound with a musically creative edge.
Virtuoso keyboardist Dan Kleiman produced and arranged the CD,
which is on our own Steel Guitar Forum Records label. Dan's
near-perfect accompaniment and tight rhythm section provide a solid
foundation for Jim's awesome technique on both C6th and E9th. Players
from all over are raving about this CD, using words like "superb",
"tasteful" and "excellent", but my favorite
quote comes from classical steel maestro Mike Perlowin, who said:
"This CD is one of the best steel guitar recordings ever.
With it, Jim has established himself as a major league talent,
up there on the same level as all our Nashville based heros. (Of
course anybody who has ever heard him play live already knows
"As far as I'm concerned, this is the steel guitar album
of the year. 5 stars."
