I am Jim Brimer a jazz clarinetist that leads a group called Jim’s Jazz Band which plays traditional jazz music residing in Fort Worth, Texas. Brian Harvey of EuroClub de Jazz in the United Kingdom says “The Jim of Jim’s Jazz Band is the highly experienced and very talented clarinetist Jim Brimer who’s been around the Texan jazz scene for many years. Together with the other players of his band he plays down home classic jazz”. The group Jim’s Jazz Band, due to economical issues, can perform for you as a single with an E-Trio, a duo, a trio, or a quartet. Also, Jim’s Jazz Band can be the ‘original size’ jazz band of six players. You can find more information at my web site.
I produced a CD of Jim’s Jazz Band performing fourteen great jazz tunes while playing live at Pierre’s Mardi Gras Café in Arlington, Texas. Listening to the sounds of my trio performing, one could feel the styles of traditional jazz played on the stages of the 1930’s. Last spring we played again at Pierre’s. Before that, Jim’s Jazz Band played a private company party in Irving, Texas which became a yearly event that lasted for three years. In the summer, we played for Grapefest 2010 in Grapevine, our second year with them. And in December we played at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. I am now currently playing at Blue Cherry in Fort Worth with my E-Trio, a recorded trio of bass, drums, and guitar.
