5.0 out of 5 stars Touching and sensitive interpretation of jazz tunes 8 Oct 1999
By Caroline Donnelly (donnelly@mail.auburn.edu) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
We were given this CD as a gift and it hasn't been out of my car CD player since!! After reading a bio of Jim we contacted him via e-mail and discovered he was going to be in our vicinity in one week as a back-up player with Crystal Gayle. We got tickets and met him after the concert. What a gracious and talented player he is. Our only dissapointment is that he is so busy with his duties playing back-up that he isn't regularly in any club so that his live performances are few and far between. He is writing actively and will have another CD out in the spring,with more of his own tunes on it. Again our assessment of his playing and personality can't be too enthusiastic. He is simply the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of musical fresh air 29 Dec 1999
By Charlie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a terrific change of pace from rap, hip-hop, pretty-boy vocal groups with boring harmonies and country singers in big black hats, Jim Ferguson's Not Just Another Pretty Bass cd is a breath of musical fresh air. More than a virtuoso on the bass along with an open and inviting vocal style, Mr. Ferguson takes the musical form of jazz-influenced "standards" and delivers each song with an irresitable contemporary flair. From the whimsy in the title track, Not Just Another Pretty Bass, written by Mr. Ferguson, to the heartfelt performance of Blame it On My Youth, and all of the other cuts, we never tire of listening to it. We give it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Another Pretty Jazz Album 19 Jan 2000
By Kyle Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This cd is simply amazing. I bought it while I was in Nashville after a music teacher at MTSU suggested that I listen to it. With all due respect to the New York jazz scene, this album is such a breath of fresh air in comparison to most modern jazz. The Nashville delivery and the stripped down quartet setup (the jazz quartet is almost a lost art) make this an incredible blend of the old and the new. If you have any interest at all in vocal jazz, this is above and away one of the top ten jazz albums of the ninties. Great job, JIM.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure 3 Oct 1999
By Frank Balogh, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow! Jim Ferguson! His treatment of a ballad is so sensitive, done with such passion, executed with such precision. Jim's voice performance is to the song as is Lynne Arriale's piano. What an enjoyable experience listening to Jim and his bass perform their magic on this great selection of tunes. I can't wait for the next CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is lucious jazz 19 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard this CD reviewed on NPR, and fell in love. Ferguson has a delicous voice. The sax is superb, the keyboard great...this is lovely listening. I have bought 3 of this CD so far, one for me and two as gifts...a must for jazz that retains and regifts us with melody and wonderful vocal style and phrasing. Yummy stuff.
