If you're wondering what I've been up to since last year,
head over to my
SoundCloud page. I've been working on a series of
"electronic Christian meditation" pieces as well as some
iPad NanoStudio collaborations and miscellaneous other
projects. So far I haven't collected enough for a new album
release but I'm not rushing it. Right now, I'm just having
fun with the creative process.
The fourth album from multiinstrumentalist Jim Hanks takes a
different direction than all his previous efforts. You want
old school jazz? This aint it. This EP-length eclectic jazz
collection explores music written in or for an earlier time
but re-imagined for the 21st century. Surprises abound, so
sit back, relax, and enjoy the cool jazz stylings featuring
electric wind instrument.
The third album from multiinstrumentalist Jim Hanks returns
to the eclectic jazz roots of the debut "Everlasting,
Wonderful, Immanuel", in contrast with the vocally-oriented
"Elyon's Worship Instrument". The almost entirely
instrumental "Dedication" features electric wind instrument
(EWI) in many guises as well as recorders, harmonicas, and a
myriad of software-based instrumentation to produce a rich
and varied collection. Among the 15 tracks, you'll find
smooth jazz, funk, blues, ballads, latin, and more, for an
eclectic mix of over 70 minutes of music.

Several of my songs have been selected for inclusion on Art of the

Pearl. There are lots of great EWI tracks there so

Elyon's Worship Instrument
The second album from
multiinstrumentalist Jim Hanks takes a dramatically
different turn from the debut "Everlasting, Wonderful,
Immanuel". While still heavily featuring electric wind
instrument (EWI), "Elyon's Worship Instrument" also adds
Biblically-based lyrics, solid songwriting and heartfelt
vocals. Three instrumental tracks and eleven vocal tracks
range from smooth jazz to heavy rock with several stops in
between, combining to produce an eclectic worship
experience for the contemporary church.

Wonderful, Immanuel" CD right here

The album is also available on CD Baby and
