Editorial Reviews

The Time Jumpers play country music real country music at a time when few do, revitalizing classics and adding new songs to the swing and honky-tonk repertoire. They are a sophisticated Nashville ensemble with strong Texas influences and overtones, able to enthrall audiences with their masterful improvisation and rich soulful lead and harmony vocals. Just add fiddles, great pedal steel, and standout instrumentals to make irresistible and timeless music. Comprised of Dawn Sears, Ranger Doug Green, Andy Reiss, Dennis Crouch, Jeff Taylor, Joe Spivey, Larry Franklin, Paul Franklin, Billy Thomas, Kenny Sears, and Vince Gill, the band's skill set is exceeded only by their passion for the music and the purity of their interpretations. The Time Jumpers bringing Country Music back to Nashville, Tennessee.

If you tune into country stations these days, you can hear lots of richly orchestrated pop music with a bit of a southern accent. Used to be there was a thing called country music, though. That's where The Time Jumpers come in (along with folks like Asleep At The Wheel.) And this is very much a band, where everybody gets a turn and where nobody outshines the others. Sure Vince Gill is the big name but he, for all his amazing musical skills and wonderful tenor, is only a sometimes lead singer. These folks have figured it out. Play the music we want to play, make it sound like country music is supposed to and the heck with the rest of it all. Because they have plenty of work, they can do what they want. And it's all here- homages to Texas, blue yodels, upbeat two-steps, lonesome blues, fiddle solos, even a Bob Wills-like "here come those boys" sneaks in. No surprise the it's on Rounder records, who have been doing what they themselves want for decades. Do yourself a favor and get it, this and anything else by the Jumpers. And go for a ride with the music blaring.

I'll buy everything they put out. One of the best old time western swing bands around. If you like Asleep at the Wheel, the Quebe Sisters, or Bob Wills you will love this album.

This group has a stunning amount of talent. This group has THREE current members of Vince Gill's touring band in it. Vince himself, singer Dawn Sears & drummer Billy Thomas. This release is EPIC. The amount of chops in this band is unheard of. If you are a fan of good music then this is a no brainer for sure. This release will win a Grammy NO DOUBT!!!!!

The Time Jumpers CD did not disappoint. I have to admit I probably would not have purchased this had Vince Gill not been involved.As a result, I fell in love with all the other musicians as well.
I had the privilege of seeing them in a very intimate concert benefit they did in my home town for Children's Advocacy. So not only are they talented beyond the imagination, they are generous and kind hearted as well.
Buy it, you will not be disappointed.

Why try to "pigeon hole" music when the performances are so varied? Like the make up of the Time Jumpers, the tunes played are varied, energetic and high quality. Give this one a listen ... and then get the first CD "Jumpin Time" and the DVD of the same. You won't regret it. I'm not sure why the disk is marketed as by Vince Gill (just one of the Jumpers), but if it sells more disks then so be it ... makes it worth cutting another disk. Then you can file your copy with Bob Wills, Asleep At the Wheel, Vince Gill, Riders In the Sky, Cindy Walker, Spade Cooley or whoever you want to compare to the Time Jumpers. I just file mine on my shelf for "Favorites".

I was already well aware of this band's reputation which has been established by their regular performances at noted Nashville Americana hotspots like the Station Inn. This is a collection of top-notch sophisticated musicians playing in great form. After a few listens, this CD may induce you to journey to Music City to see this outfit perform LIVE! Great CD; a "must have" for lovers of the modern Western Swing style.

The Time Jumpers are great musicians. They also write songs. They are an 11-piece swing band. For this album, they have added Vince Gill. With the exception of one song, all are written either by Vince or one of the Jumpers. The "other" song was written by Harlan Howard. This is a very good album. Terrific, really. Great vocals --- including some from Dawn Sears. And the instrumentals are brilliant. Texas/Western swing fans will love this.

...these guys are good: Great pickers with a fantastic sense of history and a real understanding of the music. I've heard them in person and checked out their earlier double live album and really enjoyed both experiences. Now they have a deal with a reasonably powerful indie conglomerate and are taking their art into a studio...and that's where the life vanishes from the project.

It's hard to make a viable, vital studio album by what is essentially a top-tier Friday night bar band. Call it the BR-549 effect. What the Time Jumpers do is so steeped in lore and legacy that, despite subtle nods to modernity, taken outside of the Station Inn, it's hard to really hear the point. I could listen to the Tune Wranglers or Johnnie Lee Wills or Bob Wills or any number of vintage Western Swing acts and hear first-generation innovation, or I can listen to what is essentially a high-gloss replica. The choice, to me, is clear.

Why Rounder thought these guys would appeal to anything but a specialist audience or Music Row insiders swollen with local pride is beyond me. There is some fine playing and singing here, and it's great to hear industry pros let their hair down and play the kind of music they like to play (and my goodness Dennis Crouch is just titanic throughout). But it's so slick, so polished, that even though it was largely recorded live, there's nor grit or soul to it...nothing that really touches your heart.

By all means, go see the Time Jumpers live, and maybe check out one of the earlier live albums. Those disks give you more heat and excitement...but I wouldn't recommend this album as a point of entry.
