"Jimmy D. Lane's guitar playing will knock you over. His control of his guitar, from the most delicate tonal nuances to the flashiest, fastest licks, is almost superhuman. Only the most masterful guitar players can command their instruments this way, and all the practice in the world can't develop it. Jimmy D. Lane is a natural-born guitar monster." - Bob Margolin, guitarist in the Muddy Waters Band for seven years

It's Time could just as well have been titled It's Overdue. It's long been time for one of today's most powerful and expressive musicians to break the chains of relative commercial obscurity. Time to seize the reins of blues leadership, just as his father, Jimmy Rogers, did in the 1940s. Masters Eddie Kramer (engineer for Hendrix, Zeppelin, Woodstock etc.), Chris "Whipper" Layton and Tommy Shannon (of Double Trouble) and Mike Finnigan (organ in the bands of Etta James, Taj Mahal and CSN&Y) are all onboard to give Jimmy the nudge he needs to clear the launching pad. It's Time.

"Just wanted to let you know how much Frank and I are enjoying Jimmy D. Lane's new CD - It's Time. It is truly wonderful! We are looking forward to experiencing the Blues Masters concert in Oct. Take care and thanks so much for such a hauntingly awesome CD. Please convey to him that we are hoping not to wear out the CD we enjoy it so much." - Peggy Ulasek, Maryland

"Lane's certainly got the goods. The guitarist and singer - he plays bass and drums, too, on a pair of tracks - wrote all but one of the disc's 12 songs. And he's got a knack for mixing Hendrix- and Vaughan-influenced contemporary blues with old-school roots learned from his father...what makes It's Time a fun listen is its textural variety...Kramer's production offers a bright, modern sound that still has the warm feel of live performance. He and Lane keep the set tightly focused...For Jimmy D. Lane, now's as good a time as any." - Michael Cote, Blues Revue, February/March 2005

I own all three of these Jimmy lp's and this one is the best sound quality and simply jams! You can't go wrong with this lp. Absolute 5 star rating I only hope they produce another!

I own over 3000 recordings, many of them blues; many of them of talented guitarists. Jimmy D. Lane ranks among the top of these fine performers. You owe it to yourself to try this and others by Lane if you're serious about good music. His incredible guitar work, song writing skills, and vocals are joyful indeed.


Je vous jure que c'est le meilleur bluesman actuel !

Jimmy D. Lane (digne fils de son père Jimmy Rogers) est un mélange de Jimmy Reed et Albert King survitaminé. En plus, en écoutant bien on jurerai entendre certains petits accords "Hendrixiens", ce qui ne gâche en rien son blues fulgurant au son chaud et à la voix sublime. Jetez-vous sur ses albums; ils sont tous de la même graine : celle qui pousse et qui grandit sans cesse. Un superbe bluesman, un bon look et en plus une tronche bien sympatique !!! Si acoustic sound m'invite un jour dans leur église pour l'écouter, j'y cours !
