Jim's extensive experience in the music business as producer of the first two Medeski, Martin & Wood records, and as producer and drummer with Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley as the J B Horns, to list a few of his projects, adds to his qualifications as a drum instructor. See the web site (www.funkydrummer.com) for further details on his career.

He is looking forward to moving back to NYC.
