This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

Jim Rothermel was a great horn player, appearing in many interesting albums. He played many different instruments, sax, clarinet, also flute, recorder and harmonica. He was born in Panama on September 29th, 1941, but soon moved to Norfolk.

I still haven´t had time to write a proper page about Jim, but sad news is that Jim passed away on May 16th, 2011, due to complications of leukemia. That´s the reason why I´m publishing this page as a tribute to him. I'll try to add more info little by little.

He started playing in rock bands, but in later years, he moved to his passion, jazz, playing with several orchestras and even his own band. He was also a sax teacher at Sonoma State University.

More facts...


He received a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award for 2009 on October 17, 2008 at Lincoln Center in New York.

Young played the trumpet for actor Jack Carson´s character in the movie Blues in the Night (1941), featuring Jimmie Lucenford And His Orchestra with Snooky Young (and also Will Osborne And His Band).

Snooky also played in the soundtracks of the movies Blazing Saddles (1974, funny movie directed by Mel Brooks, starring Gene Wilder, and featuring Count Basie), New York, New York (1977, starring Robert De Niro and Liza Minelli), and The Color Purple (1985, directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring Oprah Winfrey).

He passed away on May 11th, 2011 at a relative’s home in Newport Beach, California, USA, due to complications from a lung disorder. He was 92. What a great legacy he has left us.

As always, with musicians with such long careers, I can´t even dream of covering every fact, so I know I´m missing many live bands, orchestra lineups, as well as hundreds of recordings, but I´ll be adding more info in the future. Meanwhile, if someone can provide additional info, it would be very welcomed.

Tommy Eyre appears here because of the inclusion of the track ´Since I met you baby´ recorded by Gary Moore with B.B. King guesting. Other musicians who'll be covered in my site someday are: Kenny Aaronoff (drums), Wilbur Bascomb (bass), Merry Clayton (vocals), Bob Daisley (bass), Martin Drover (trumpet), Cornell Dupree (guitar), Venetta Fields (vocals), Anton Fig (drums), Jim Gordon (drums), Wayne Jackson (sax), Jim Keltner (drums), Carol Kenyon (vocals), Clydie King (vocals), Al Kooper (keyboards), Russ Kunkel (drums), Michael Landau (guitar), Will Lee (bass), Andrew Love (horns), Hugh McCracken (guitar), Frank Mead (horns), Gary Moore (guitar), Dean Parks (guitar), Nick Payne (horns), Nick Pentelow (sax), Bernard Purdie (drums), Neil Stubenhaus (bass), Klaus Voormann (bass), Ernie Watts (sax).
