"Lifeboat" by Jimmy Herring
This outstanding effort which insiders and fellow musicians calling it an absolute musical masterpiece is full of surprises that elevates Jimmy's already fantastic reputation to be an outstanding guitarist. Jimmy Herring wrote six of the tunes along with Kofi Burbridge who wrote two tunes as well. They also do scintillating versions of Wayne Shorter's "Lost," as well the "Overture" from Walt Disney's "Jungle Book." Get ready for one of most impressive musical statements by one of our very favorite musicians.
Whether we will see Widespread Panic, Jimmy Herring's current project, perform any of these songs live on their upcoming fall tour remains to be seen.
