Calgary Bluesfest (2012)
The sound is funky and soulful, yet it maintains both smooth jazz and new blues undertones while
featuring solos reminiscent of great classic rock. The vocals are smoky, thoughtful, and full of memorable melodies.
"Hypnotic Funk with a solid beat..."
"Well-crafted songs feature a mesmerizing vocal that is nothing short of exceptional..."
"Zee's vocals approximate a cross between Joe Cocker after a carton of Lucky Strikes and
Robbie Robertson's latter spoken style... the cover of Roxy Roller kicks."
Music industry insiders know Jimmy Zee through his writing and production credits, having placed songs
with John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin, Diamond Rio, Jaydee Bixby and Neil McCoy to name a few.
The last CD's featured tracks, Santa Fe, Diamonds and rocking bluesy remake of Sweeny Todd's
Eighties hit Roxy Roller, have garnered international attention, with adds to radio playlists
in the US, Europe, Japan and Canada. Roxy Roller was chosen as top ten remake of all time by the Toronto Star.
Don't miss Jimmy Zee and his hot-ass band when they play live.
