When I listened to the Shuffle'n'Swing album a few times on a decent hi-fi sound system, I realised there were some nuances which I can remember from the sessions that weren't coming through in the mix. So I've just finished spending a full week remixing and mastering the album for CD. Time well spent. The balance and clarity, aided by some more 'scooping out' in the low-mid ranges and revised stereo panning, has improved and the nuances, particularly with the horns and vocals are better delivered. Everything sits up better in the mix overall and there is now more punch and dynamic as well. I was really excited and encouraged by the results when listening to the album while I was preparing the CD box artwork.
The remixed album is available for download from the www.jimmythedog.com website and songs can be downloaded as .FLAC or .mp3 files. The CD will be coming out soon for those who want own a physical product. If you want a CD, get in touch!

Check out the new album from Jimmy The Dog! In a departure from the artist's usual rock/blues/outlaw country style, this one is influenced by jump-jive and the swing style of the 1950's. Like Michael BublÃ© and Bobby Darin before him, this album is a modern take on that brass swing thing. Featuring session players from Ronnie Scott's in London Max Fagandini on trumpet and trombone, Dominic Thatcher on alto sax and the fabulous Louisa Minas on all female vocal parts, this is the album Jimmy The Dog always wanted to make. If you liked Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive, you'll like this one!

Just signed a single-track an exclusive contract for an investigative tension cue which I've called "Through a Wet Windshield" with Platinum Music Ltd., a new music library for film and TV. I now have to supply them another 5 versions of the same track!

Confession; I've neglected updating the news on this site as I've been working on my more immediate sites, such as www.jimmythedog.com - my apologies. More good news on the licensing front; Many of my tracks are under consideration with Netflix as well as various music libraries. This is encouraging as I took a couple of years out for live performance which resulted in a couple of major summer festival appearances, including Standon Calling (July 2016) near Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, England on the same bill as major label heavyweights Jess Glynne, Kelis and Suede. Plus, I recorded and produced a new album, Jimmy The Dog's "Runnin' With The Pack". There are some more live appearances booked for this year, but back to the studio now for those drones, cues and film backing tracks.
