Product Description

The Time Jumpers are Nashville's best kept musical secret, but the word is spreading about what many of Nashville's recording artists, musicians, and industry executives have already discovered on Monday nights at The Station Inn. About eight years ago, a few of Nashville's studio musicians and vocalists made a deliberate decision to get together on stage one night a week just to have some fun playing their music of choice, and calling it their therapy session. The venue chosen was the world famous Station Inn and before long the band grew and so did their audiences. The group now consists of 11 of the most talented pickers and singers you'll ever have the pleasure to hear. The Time Jumpers have reinvented Western Swing - bringing it into the 21st century with more power, energy, and downright fun than you've ever seen and heard. Armed with their infectious arrangements, amazing musicianship, and engaging personalities, The Time Jumpers have been Nashville's best kept musical secret....but the word is out!!

Finally, the show that stars go to see has been captured for fans of all musical tastes on CD and DVD. That show, of course, is the now-famous weekly romp by The Time Jumpers, a band of A-list musicians, that takes place every Monday night in Nashville at the legendary Station Inn. Started as a jam session in which off-the-road and off-the-clock pros got together to unwind by playing their favorite kinds of songs, the performances were scheduled for the slowest night of the week, a time when only the most hardcore and appreciative fans were likely to show up. If nobody came, that was OK, too, because the pickers and singers were quite content to play for their own entertainment. At first, only the critics went wild about the show. Then, as word spread, some very famous folk began dropping in. Reba McEntire was so excited on her first visit that she joined the band to belt out some Bob Wills tunes. Vince Gill often sits in. Following one of her concerts, Bonnie Raitt came by with her band and listened in awe as the Time Jumpers breezed through an unforgettable program of Western swing, jazz, country, pop and cowboy classics. Recently, rock icon Robert Plant even pulled up a chair. All seasoned touring and studio musicians, the Time Jumpers include bassist Dennis Crouch; acoustic rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Ranger Doug Green (of Riders in the Sky); fiddlers Aubrey Haynie, Kenny Sears and Joe Spivey; pedal steel guitarist Papa John Hughey; lead electric guitarist Andy Reiss; accordionist and harmony vocalist Jeff Taylor; drummer Rick Vanaugh; and lead vocalists Dawn Sears and Carolyn Martin. On any given Monday, fans might find themselves rubbing shoulders with the likes of Rhonda Vincent, Ronnie Dunn, Delbert McClinton, Pam Tillis, Sonya Isaacs, Mel Tillis, Sheryl Crow, Lee Ann Womack, Jimmy C. Newman and Linda Davis; Nashville execs Tony Brown, Buddy Cannon; and legendary musicians Charlie McCoy, Paul Franklin, Gary Nicholson, Bob Moore, all of whom have been there to cheer the Time Jumpers on. The DVD and CD each features 26 songs and was filmed and recorded live at the Station Inn on a Monday night in May. The selections include Stompin At The Station; Honeysuckle Rose; Sugar Moon; Write Myself A Letter; Along The Navajo Trail; It s All Your Fault; Pig Dog Hop; Leavin And Sayin Goodbye; Blues For Dixie; Fidoodlin ; Bring It On Down To My House; Route 66 and Smile. Also, Roly Poly; South Of The Border; Jumpin Time; Bonaparte s Retreat; My Confession; Give Me A Pinto Pal; Embraceable You; Cherokee Maiden; My Weakness Is Too Strong; All Of Me; Caravan; Sweet Memories; and My Window Faces The South. Among the composers represented in this musical treasury are Bob Wills, Cindy Walker, Fats Waller, Grand Ole Opry star Jeannie Seely, Bobby Troup, Charlie Chaplin, Fred Rose, Pee Wee King, George and Ira Gershwin, Mickey Newbury and Duke Ellington. Three of the instrumentals were composed by Time Jumpers members. In addition to containing complete performances of 26 songs, the Jumpin Time DVD also includes revealing and insightful commentaries from all the band members, as well as remarks from Vince Gill, Rhonda Vincent, Jeannie Seely, Sonya Isaacs, and Linda Davis. The concert was shot in front of a live audience and conveys the warmth and intimacy of an evening at the Station Inn, right down to the ringing of the ship s bell near the bar to honor particularly stunning performances. Jumpin Time was executive produced by Terry Choate for The Crosswind Corporation. Matt Coale directed the DVD. Dennis Ritchie recorded and mixed the amazing audio and Bradford Van Demark at BlueSky Filmworks is responsible for the stunning video editing. The Time Jumpers created all the musical arrangements. --Morris Public Relations

You re listening tonight to the best Western Swing that has ever happened anywhere on the face of this earth. It is rare and it is exceptional and it deserves your support. Jimmy Dean The group,all 11 of them, play a jazzy, big band-flavored style of country music called Western Swing. The sound is peppy and textured with triple fiddles, twin guitars, accordion, stand-up bass, drums, two female singers and a pedal steel that whines and rumbles like a speeding train. John Gerome The Associated Press --Jimmy Dean and The Associated Press

In the last eight years, the Time Jumpers have become a modern Nashville institution by honoring a traditional sound. This is Texas swing and traditional country and pop at its finest, performed by its best practitioners. It's a rollicking trip through time, and JUMPIN' TIME is the closest you'll get to experiencing the joy that a night in Nashville with The Time Jumpers can provide. Beth Curley, President and CEO Nashville Public Television The overall sound is so musically complex, yet relaxed, that you marvel, How do they do that? Even if you have never had more than a passing curiosity about swing music, The Time Jumpers can seduce you with their music. Steven Stone Vintage Guitar Magazine --Nashville Public TV and Vintage Guitar Magazine

Where do Nashville musicians, singers and song writers go for entertainment when they have a night off? They go to The Station Inn to see and hear the Time Jumpers play these incredible musical arrangements! In addition to the music, this DVD includes interviews with some of the artists in the audience, as well as interviews with the Time Jumpers themselves.

The Time Jumpers represent modern western swing at its very best. I doubt that you will find any band anywhere that has as many highly skilled musicians in it as this one. These artists command top dollar as "call" musicians in the recording studios of Nashville, and they spend their days cranking out the kind of music that the recording company execs think will sell, but on Monday nights they gather at The Station Inn to play music that is fun to play--and fun to listen to! These musicians are capable of playing any type of music from Beethoven to Bach to Bob Wills, but when they get together to let their hair down and have fun they turn to western swing, with a few cowboy and traditional country songs added for variety.

This is not a touring band, and the musicians don't have that "burned out" look that you see on the faces of road musicians who play the same songs night after night. In fact, they stand up there grinning like Chessie cats for the entire two-hour concert on this DVD, clearly enjoying every minute of it. There is one exception: when Dawn Sears launches into "Sweet Memories" the smiles disappear as the band members begin to get pulled in by Dawn's beautiful, emotional rendition of the song. At the end, they are all struggling to hold back their tears--as you will be when you hear and see her great performance. The other female vocalist, Carolyn Martin, is also outstanding on her songs.

The Time Jumpers is probably the greatest music DVD I've ever heard. 11 players, and not a ringer in the bunch. Every song is a treat. I missed a chance to see The Time Jumpers while in Nashville. It was a well kept secret! Unfortunately, I didn't find out about them until reading of John Hughey's passing. They will have a hard time finding a player to take his spot. He can never really be replaced. At least I have 2 hours and 26 songs to enjoy. If you like Western Swing, you'll never regret buying it.

If you like old school Texas swing reminesent of Bob Wills, you must get this cd or better yet - the DVD. We saw these folks on Grand ole Opry. They are a goup of musicians who have been playing/singing with many of the nashville 'Elite'for many years and started getting together at a local Nashville 'honky tonk' and Monday nights to jam. We got the DVD for ourselves and the cd for my husbands father. My father in law has played fiddle most all his life and he was bowled over by these guys. We ended up giving him the DVD also so he could show it to his friends and fellow musicians. The Time Jumpers are a musicians cup of tea because these guys are flawless. We will be getting another DVD for ourselves and keep it mind as a gift for others.

As a professional musician I have to admit that I was never much a fan of Country Music, but this is a huge exception! I first saw this on PBS and was so amazed at the tremendous quality and absolute professionalism of these musicians, that I couldn't get this presentation out of my mind. To say that the Time Jumpers is a superb listening experience is to do it an injustice. Everyone involved with the group is a stand-alone first-rate musician, and when you put that many people in one room, the sky is the limit. Never in my life have I heard any slide guitar player demonstrate absolute perfection as "Papa John" Hughey, who died about two years after this show, and just to hear his collaboration with the other musicians is only one example of an exciting live performance that you will never forget. If anyone were to ask me if I had a favorite number on this fantastic DVD, I would be VERY hard pressed to come up with an answer - it's like asking someone which bite of their birthday cake tasted the best! There simply is no piece in this entire two hour show that I can find fault with.

This is truly Country Music in a country swing format at its very best. I'm happy to be able to say that you will NOT be disappointed!!

I ordered this after watching a clip on Youtube & was definitely not disappointed. It's quite difficult to find good CD's & DVD's of Country/Western Swing in Australia so finding this was great. The best brirthday present I've had in years!!!! A definite must for fans of great Fiddle & Pedal Steel playing.

In 2004 I went to the Station Inn to listen to this band upon a recommendation from my friend Jimmy C. Newman whose fiddler played in the band. I am so glad that this DVD was realized and I will treasure it very much. If you like this kind of country music it's among the best.

What a group of talented musicians! Their music is controlled, tight and with great sound. It's our favorite DVD and we watch it often. We can't wait for them to produce their next DVD!
