"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

Its not Stevie Ray Vaughn but with Double Trouble behind him, Jimmy D. Lane is a great runner up.

I love this SACD/CD. I've been a Stevie Ray Vaughan fan for a long time - for anyone who is, you'll really enjoy this.

I mean his guitar, his guitar is hot. Jimmy D.Lane makes me think of what Stevie Ray Vaughan would be doing if he had lived. His style and talent is few and far between.


Not SRV, but not bad

I like JD's playing and his choice of songs on this album was very good. He isn't up there with Stevie or Jimmy, but I wouldn't kick him out of my SACD player for eatin' crackers.

Reviewer: Chris Lyden
When compared to other SACDs, the quality of this recording is not up to par. The music is great, but if you have high-end audio equipment you will be distracted by the lack of richness. The vocals are drowned out by the music and there are recording artifacts that are clearly discernable.


Blues lover's must!
