American guitarist and computer scientist Jim Allchin grew up on a farm in the deep south of the US. He left it to earn a Master’s & PhD from Stanford University and the Georgia Institute of Technology.

He subsequently became a world-renowned leader in computer science and software. Meanwhile, he fell in love with blues & Latin. Jim has been composing, playing and recording all his life.

His digital album contains 11 new tracks, on which the following musicians play alongside him: Richard Boulger (trumpet & braces), Jack Daley (bass), Andy Ezrin (piano), Alex Foster (alto & tenor sax), Adan Perez (piano), Danny Sadownick (percussion), Etienne Stadwijk (piano & synthesizer), Walter White (trumpet & trombone) and Steve Wolf (drums).

Jim brings here smooth Latin guitar music, which was produced by Grammy Award nominee Yaron Fuchs, and mastered by Grammy Award nominee Michael Romanowski. Jim takes us on a musical journey through southern rhythms such as Son Montuno, mambo, Guajira, bolero and flamenco. This album therefore transcends musical boundaries, transforming contemporary jazz and Latin into a smooth jazz format.

A must for those who love Gipsy jazz, but also for those who have lost their heart to good guitar music and smooth jazz.
