I had been happily retired from the band scene for a while, when I got the 'itch' to play again, so, I started Cuban Time Productions with Yoel Diaz & released 'Te llego'. Yoel went on to win the General Motors 'Grande Prix de Jazz' of the Montreal International Jazz Festival, as pianist/composer with the Alex Bellegarde Quartet.
I've put together a new group, The Jim Norcross Project, which gives me a chance to play, write & record with some of the best players around anywhere. Yoel Diaz ,amp; Jay Jesse Johnson& Emily Lamarche have always been right there with me. Other members of JNP have included Laszlo 'Chewby' Koos, Kiko Osorio, Morgan Moore, Kelly Whatling, Nick Thompson, Peter Modos, Jay Norcross & Ray Newton, monsters all. Who will be next? It could be YOU, man!
Wish me luck & thanks for listening.
