Sunday Night Jazz Showcase
Program #253 (June 2 at 8:00 p.m.)
It’s easy to understand why the musical talents of Michael Sims are constantly being sought out, from one end of the musical spectrum to the other.
Multi-talented, Sims plays bass, keyboards and drums as well as guitar, but in spite of his impressive credentials and obvious talent, he bided his time before stepping into the spotlight.
Slowly, his willingness to take any session that came his way began to payoff. As the demand for his services increased, he took to the road with such mainstream artists as Michael Bolton and Jeffrey Osborne.
Eventually, Sims began to move away from hip hop, although his five year tenure in the musical environment certainly played a strong role in the formation of his own style.
