With Lifeboat, Jimmy Herring is poised to move from sideman to the center of the stage. Lifeboat is a wide-ranging work that encompasses various musical genres: rock, jam, jazz and blues. From foot stomping southern-flavored rockers to modern bop and fusion to a cover of the Wayne Shorter composition "Lost" and melodic pieces full of subtlety and nuance, the music of Lifeboat allows Jimmy to express a full-range of emotions through his guitar.
Lifeboat is ready for preorders at Home Grown Music and first 10 preorders will receive signed copies of this record.
