!!NEW    July 2013    NEW!!


The fifth album from multiinstrumentalist Jim Hanks offers yet another change of direction from his previous efforts. This time he offers a collection of electronic Christian meditation songs. All the "lyrics" are taken directly from the Bible; different English translations are used to emphasize certain words, meter, or phrasing. Unlike most other forms of meditation that encourage the practitioner to "empty the mind", the point of Christian meditation is to fill the mind with thoughts of God, His Word, His promises, and your part is His plan. Therefore the lull-you-to-sleep-ambience normally associated with much meditation music has been replaced by an energetic soundtrack demanding active listening and reflection.

Old's Cool

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.

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.

Psalm 150:3-6

3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre,

4 praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute,

5 praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD.
