A word from Jim & Renee about the new CD -

"It was the fans at our shows asking for a CD to take home with them that led us to this project. We wanted this CD to be an honest and true representation of our live performances – that is where all the magic of the human performance happens and all the love and mojo begins.

It was important for us to capture a live vibe and not over produce the recordings (which is so easy to do with the digital recording gear and software available today). 

Every song and every bit of art work was a labor of love - the cover art was designd by Virginia Artist Cindy Howe. The Zentangle art work contains lots of images that have special meaning to us. We hope that you enjoy it and we thank you for your continued love and support."
