I'm thankful I discovered Jimmy in the last five years, or so. I first heard "The Sermon" on a Starbucks jazz compilation disk that my mother gave me as a Christmas gift. I immediately bought the "Sermon" album, and soon thereafter purchased his "Dot Com Blues" CD, which I still use as a reference disk. I was fortunate to see him perform a few years ago in LA when he was touring to support the "Dot Com Blues" release. He'll be missed.
