Last Sunday we recorded five more tunes in the on-going "Dip Ferrel and the True Tones" saga.

These sessions are always fun. We record the entire band live. Rhythm section; Don Dixon Bass, Jamie Hoover on Guitar, Mark Stallings on Keyboards, Jim Brock on drums, horns; usually three:Brad Wilcox on trumpet, and Tony Hayes and I on saxophones and most times the back up vocals (again usually three); Shana Blake, Beth Charneau, and Rick Blackwell.  

These tunes are almost always originals by Billy and Jackie Jeffords. They are a big hit in England and always get a nomination at the "Beach Music Awards" for song of the year. ("Yet to Win")

Industry Veteran Ricky Schultz says...

"The measure of a musician is their body of work.  It's what seperates the men from the boys.​

Credentials --- the company you keep. It takes time, opportunity, and in the end-real talent do such a thing. You have to put in many thousands of hours--you can't fake the funk.

What makes a body of work? Twenty years with both The Temptations and The Four Tops. Like a rock.

Having worked with a list of artists so deep, (Google it) from so many genres, that suddenly it hits you--TIM GORDON is one of those players--one of the clutch, go to saxophonists in contemporary music.

Dedicated to his art, Tim is a connoisseur-level musician. His dedication is apparent when you hear his sound. And suddenly it hits you again--you've probably heard him before, maybe even seen him along your musical journey.

SOULFUL, hip-smart, and technically brilliant. What else could you ask of a saxophone player?

Encyclopedic range, comfort with any kind of music, and besides all that? He's a real nice guy.


You're in for a real treat here. Tim Gordon has finally made a record of his own.

Enjoy,
Ricky Schultz
