Notice to Our Readers: In the near future, we will be halting publication of new contentin the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We'll be leaving some content on the site in an archived status. We'll move other content to our personal websites ( and (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. More to come...

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:
