Synopsis

Product Description
Mimi Fox, a remarkable jazz guitarist whose work encompasses everything from sensitive reflection to swinging aggressiveness. She has long been one of the San Franacisco Bay Area s most sought after players and was nominated for a Bammie Award in 1989 for her first recording. In addition to Mimi s impressive technique and deep reservoir of improvisational ideas, this CD cleerly displays her considerable talents as a composer. Fox introduced herself to the international jazz scene in the 1990s with a pair of CDs on Monarch Records including Kicks, a high energy project pairing her with collaborators such as Joey DeFrancesco and Yellowjackets Russell Ferrante and Will Kenney. Song List: Night and Day, Turtle Logic, Mr. Elegant's Bow Tie, When I Cry , My Romance, 39th Parallel, Gentle Rain and Shining Star Medley Allaboutjazz.com awarded the album a superlative four star rating: "This is a strongly melodic collection and one that swings out stylishly. Mimi Fox is a major talent."

Jazz Expert Plays Exactly What She Wants to Play
Felix Schultz | Canton, Ohio United States | 02/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Joe Pass, the premiere Jazz guitarist, said of Mimi Fox, that she can play anything she wants. Her ability was evident to Joe
Pass, as it is to anyone experienced in Jazz music who listens to her playing. In this set
she reminds me of Jim Hall with her perfect timing and close playing with other instruments. The
laid back style is exactly the mood intended. On her other albums where she plays variations of rock songs like "Kicks" by
Paul Revere and the Raiders, or R&B riffs with a B3 Organ, she
can really rip into the music, and her bebop tunes are a wonder to hear. She is a genius, and each album is a special treat, tailored to her expression, because what she plays
is what she means to play, and she has that gift to entertain
just by playing."
