A wise producer introduced me to Jim and suggested we work together on the “Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town” series. I was committed to another series and so was Jim so the collaboration made a lot of sense in terms of work load. What we discovered was a really seamless mesh of our individual strengths. Jim is an adept classical composer, conductor and orchestrator. My compositions were enhanced to the perfect degree by Jim’s touches and it really became a complete back and forth of ideas. We’ve since worked together on two albums and I go to the “Jim well” as often as I can.
