Something for Everybody

Jim Gibson

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Something For Everyone" pretty much lives up to its title. It has blues, soul, funk and jazz, all done rather well by Jim Gibson and his cohorts. Regardless of style, the band always carries things off, and the quality of the songs is, on the whole, very good indeed. Several of the tunes on the album could quite easily be attributed to more famous artists. All in all, "Something For Everyone" is a good album that should appeal to those who like a bit of variety with plenty of New Orleans influence. Gordon Baxter - Blues on Stage

Storm Warning

Jim Gibson

"Storm Warning" On the follow up to 1999's "Something For Everyone" Nashville based guitarist Jim Gibson has moved things on again. The New Orleans/Louisiana influence has been replaced this time by a more soulful streak. Just to reinforce it, Steve Cropper is drafted in on guitar for a couple of tracks. Mighty Mo Rodgers also puts in an appearance, sharing vocals on the opener "Love Don't Always Do". It is a cracking soul workout, with Cropper on guitar and some very tasty sax from Jerry Peterson. Cropper later returns for the equally excellent mambo-based "Say When". Although these two are probably the best tracks, there is plenty of other good stuff too, all of which Gibson wrote. Tunes like "It's Too Late", with its almost Bonnie Raitt-like slide guitar interlude, and "Extra Special Delivery", for example, both chug along nicely. Elsewhere there is a chance to boogie too, on the horn laden "Storm Warning" where ZZ Top meet John Hiatt. Gibson also does a couple of songs solo on resonator. The first of these, "Joy Ride", does not appear to have anything to do with cars, despite its title!

On first hearing, the upbeat rock'n'roll stylings of "Can't Slow Down", with its excellent swinging horns, seems like a natural place to end. There is one more track, however, as Gibson takes things home with the slightly lower key, but highly effective closer, "Rock Paper Scissors".

Jim Gibson fits inside a musical triangle that has Hiatt, Raitt, and Delbert McClinton at its corners. There is much to admire about "Storm Warning", an album that rewards repeated plays, and is worth tracking down Gordon Baxter - Blues on Stage

Turn It Around

“Turn It Around” Five Points ( Maximum)

A roots-album of special quality! The excellent variety of styles that singer, guitarist and songwriter Jim Gibson delivers, is hard to find! The journey begins with the perfectly produced “40 Days”, a great Santana-Latin-flavored song with magnificent solo-guitar, great vocals and a good melody -line. The following “Nothing Compares To Your Love” is a mid-tempo rocker which would suit even the E-Street Band fine. The Album shows also a lot of blues. There’s a song in the best Robert-Johnson-myth (“before You Deal With The Devil”) with excellent acoustic and electric slide guitar, as well as a classic guitar-blues-tune “Stand Up For Jesus”. One can hear some gospel too, with a great choir on “Lord Hear My Prayer” or with a singing slide and a sort of New -Orleans -feeling on “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”, which is the only cover song on the album. Gibson’s music comes with perfect instrumentation, there is also enough room for the Hammond B-3 and superb saxophones. But what impresses the most are Gibson’s great voice and his diversified songwriting. Highly recommended! Dietmar Hoscher - Concerto Magazine 6/2005
