Jimmy Sommers was first smitten with the saxophone when he was still a grade school student in his native area of Chicago. "The sax just seemed so cool" says Sommers recollecting on those days. His affinity and aptitude for the sax progressed to a point where he has become one of the hottest names on the world's smooth jazz circuit. His new album "Sunset Collective" continues Sommers' path of bringing a little hipness and edge to the smooth jazz world. As with his previous albums (James Cafe, 360 Urban Groove, Lovelife) he collaborates with some of the most reknown artists around. "Sunset Collective" finds Jimmy playing with other artists such as Paul Oakenfold, Paul Brown, Rahsaan Patterson, Vikter Duplaix, Brian Culbertson, Angela Johnson and DJ Spinna. The album crosses into Jazz, soul and electronica arenas. It has already entered the top chart of Radio and Records Smooth Jazz Survey. In addition to his music Sommers is making quite a name for himself as a renaissance entreprenuer. He is one of the owners of the Hollywood hotspot Koi LA. He was one of the original foundational partners in the publicly traded company Baby Genius and has just started a clothing line called Whitehorse Couture. He has appeared on television shows such as The Today Show, Access Hollywood, Smooth Jazz TV, Regis and Kelly and others. His electrifying performances have taken him to concert stages and festivals both in the States and abroad.
