Artist Biography:
These September Days represents three years of fun, adventure, love and hard work with some of the finest musicians to be found anywhere. Jim Brumm’s first CD release, after 35 years of playing and writing has been worth the wait.

Recorded at Wine Country Music Studios in Napa, California, it has a sound that covers a wide musical spectrum, from folk to jazz, blues to cajun, swing and more. Some songs lift you up immediately and carry you along, others will grow on you more slowly, giving you the time to savor them. Some will have you smiling right away, some will leave you thoughtful, perhaps wistful. Whatever your musical tastes, These September Days has something for everybody.

Also, if you love good lyrics, this is your album. The lyrics on These September Days are as much a part of the fabric of each track as the musicianship.

Violins, saxophones, accordions, ripping lead guitars and soft cellos all have their moment to shine here. Some songs are funny (“Just a big cockroach” is not to be missed!), some are thoughtful and introspective. The title track, with its haunting guitar and beautiful violin and cello accompaniment has been described as the perfect song for anyone facing change in their life, and "Alice (The grandma song)” should reach anyone who has ever had a wise and loving old woman touch their heart.

With amazing back-up vocals and harmonies by Theresa Stoops, Lynda Amen-Otis and Darlene Gardner, along with the talents of Northern California jazz legend Philip Grady Smith, Ylonda Nichols (who now plays her saxophone with Les Brown and his Band of Renown), Peggy Brady, first-chair violinist with the Napa Valley Symphony, bassist Keith Ledbetter and Leigh Wyckoff, founder of Wine Country Music and guitarist extraordinaire, and many others, this is one CD that will stay in your player for a long time.
