“We had the opportunity to jam together at one very fun show…his tenacity, and sheer energy and excitement paid off big for James, as the whole ship fell in love with him in that moment. He’s that good! A seasoned live performer for sure, when he is on stage he communicates on such a different level…it’s inspiring” Dave Koz ( Grammy winning Saxophonist USA)
James Flynn possesses flawless intonation, a fine sense of rhythmic swing and an uncanny interpretation of the lyric. From the point of view of solely recording, this would be sufficient but in a live setting he brings much more. Flynn engages his audience – he has the talent to communicate. His concert performances in front of capacity audiences feel like a casual presentation in a friend’s lounge room. This ability to make everyone feel “at home” is a rare skill in the jazz environment. In short he is an entertainer
