Jim was a great influence on many musicians and friends. He was a great encouragement and fine entertainer. Glad he tred this earth as long as he did as he shared God's joy for His creation. Can't forget the great days at the restaurant in early morning hours after a gig. RIP Jim

Lots of memories from the Crystal Ball days Jimmy taught me many licks on the drums which I employed playing in Frank Lease's band RIP

You have my deepest sympathy over your loss of your Dad. I have so many fond memories of your parent's restaruant. Everyone felt like it was just a family gathering. Your parents enjoyed entertaining and talking to everyone who came. I know your Dad enjoyed playing the drums with the band. He came from an era that enjoyed the music for dancing. I'm sorry to see it going away.

Condolences to the family. So many memories from the restaurant, Crystal Ball and the many gigs with Jimmy. A very good drummer. I don't know if Dorie's cookbook is still available but I think it is a treasure of memories related to that era. RIP Jimmy. Jim Wolfe
