With a sweet sound and smooth vibe, Jim Dorman’s music is easy to listen to–but don’t call it easy listening.
There’s a lot going on in his blend of jazz, blues, folk, new age, and acoustic rock. It’s a thought-provoking style that’s been compared to the likes of Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges.
Jim’s music ranges from happy to melancholy, sunny to rainy, hopeful to mounful, but always with plenty of thoughtfulness and reflection. A mixture of instruments from around the world offers vivid imagery and a strong sense of place, and yet still leaves room for the listener’s imagination to create its own setting.
