Jim Carr Creates Lovely Album
with "The Space Below"

CD Review

Dec 8, 2012

Kimmy Sophia Brown

Jim Carr has created a classy album of smooth jazz guitar instrumentals. Each cut is executed with sharp, crystalline finger work, and they're as relaxing as a soak in a hot tub. Just the titles of the songs reveal something of Jim Carr’s heart and sensitivity.

As I listen to this album, I feel Jim’s warmth and desire to convey reassurance and calm to a worry-frenzied world. This is an album to listen to with a glass of wine in front of a warm fire, or as background music for a gathering of close friends.

“Nick’s Web” is a crisply played, sweet little excursion of joy.

“Solace”, “Mother”, and “Child” are three quiet pieces.

“Three Paths Converged” has a flowing feeling with a lot of energy.

“I Burn For You”, written by Sting, conveys a lover’s yearning heart.

“Planxty Irwin” is a traditional piece, played with intricacy and enthusiasm. I love this one especially.

“Last of Three” is a song that makes me wonder about the origin of the title. It seems to tell a sad story.

“Forgotten Things” is an understated piece that expresses longing.

Jim is as handsome as a prince, and is an excellent musician too! This CD, released by Uma Nota Records, is a ‘must have’ addition for lovers of smooth jazz guitar. His CD can be purchased at these two websites:
