Jim Gordon They're Here 2014

San Francisco and the surrounding area has long been an over looked and under appreciated hot bed of both Latin and slightly more contemporary improvisational talent, Jim Gordon is one of the highpoints in this burgeoning scene!

A hybrid is a mix of musical styles, sometimes it works and sometimes the end result is a sonic train wreck of epic proportions. Jim Gordon has released a new single "They're Here." Take a contemporary groove, and the retro sound of the Rhodes with a smoldering deconstructed percussive pop of Latin jazz and the end result is a sound as vibrant and rich as the cover art depicted above.
