GIG REVIEW - Alexander O'Neal at The Globe, 20th June 2014 Alexander O'Neal had a string of hits at the end of the 80's, all written and produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the team responsible for most of Janet Jackson's work. I was very excited to be seeing such a legend boosted by a review I had read of his gig in Camden a few days earlier where he rocked the placed with his band, depsite only being on stage for around 50 minutes. Better to be short and sweet than long and drawn out. We tturned up to The Globe and asked the bouncer what time AON would be coming on stage, and we were told around 10pm. On such a warm evening it would be best to turn up just before. When we arrived, the venue was so packed that it was virtually impossible to get to the bar. 30 minutes we waited to get served, the whole time listening to Cardiff Radio DJ's exclaiming that AON would be on in 15 minutes and playing snippets of club classics from the era. At 10.15 they shouted "Welcome to the stage, Alexander O'Neal" and o ...
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had some of the best cross and funk records in the 80s man.
Okay - Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Janet?? They are like collard greens and cornbread and pork.

My Wake Up Song of the Day: I'm in a Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis kind of mood...
On June 6th, we celebrated the 55th birthday of James Samuel "Jimmy Jam" Harris III (June 6, 1959); an African-American R&B songwriter and record producer. In collaboration with partner Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam emerged as one of the most successful producers and writers of the 1980s, his long history of pace-setting R&B, club, and pop hits reaching its apex on a series of smash records for Janet Jackson. Born James Harris III in Minneapolis, he first met Lewis in high school, and together they formed Flyte Tyme, a popular Twin Cities band which in 1981 evolved into the Time, a group led by Prince protégé Morris Day. Shortly after the release of the Time's Prince-produced eponymous debut LP, Jam and Lewis formed Flyte Time Productions. In March 1983, while touring with the Time in support of Prince, the duo took advantage of a short break in their schedule to fly to Atlanta to produce a handful of tracks for the S.O.S. Band's On the Rise LP. After a freak blizzard left Jam and Lewis stranded in Georgia and ...
I spent the last 2 weeks in Los Angeles. It was a business and pleasure trip, and I had a great time. I got to hang with some of my boys, like Ray Parker Jr., Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, & Jerome from The Time. I’ve posted 2 photos here from the trip. The first is me on the golf course with Sugar Ray Leonard, Johnny Mathis, & Johnny Gill. If Ray & I could sing, it would be a great quartet. But we can’t, so it’s just a pretty cool foursome. The other photo is the first selfie I ever took. It’s an awful shot, but a pretty cool moment. I was out walking one morning at the beach in Malibu and I ran into Adam Sandler. He was so nice and very cool. As I was leaving, I hugged him and he said “You’re a good man Donnie.” I was shocked. I had no idea he knew who I was. I guess he watched Video Soul. It certainly wasn’t because of my Academy Award performance in Krush Groove. It was a great trip, but I’m glad to be back home doing the things I enjoy so much. Like taking out the trash, weeding, and clea ...

Minneapolis, Minnesota is a place not often given its due as a center generating American culture.

Those are just the headline music makers, mind can also talk about Tiny Tim and Dave Pirner and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Morris Day and The can think about the likes of the Coen Brothers among about trying Charles Schultz, creator of "Peanuts" on for size?

Biography::Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966) is an American recording artist and actress. Born in Gary, Indiana, and raised in Encino, Los Angeles, she is the youngest child of the Jackson family of musicians. She first performed on stage with her family at the age of seven, and started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons in 1976. She went on to appear in other television shows throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, including Good Times and Fame. At age sixteen in 1982, she signed a recording contract with A&M and released her self-titled debut. She faced criticism for her limited vocal range, and for being yet another member of the Jackson family to become a recording artist. Beginning with her third studio album Control (1986), she began a long-term collaboration with record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Her music with Jam and Lewis incorporated elements of rhythm and blues, disco, funk, rock and rap with sample loop, triplet swing and industrial beat ...

Craig Gordon came and closed us out, sounding even better than usual, if that's possible. Thanks to all of you for making it fun and entertaining the crowd.

I had the awesome opportunity to interview Fred Hammond on the "Mr. P In the Afternoon" radio show on yesterday on PraizePower 1350 WLOU and the New Praize 104.7. Not only is Fred Hammond one of the greatest cutting-edge gospel innovators of our day, he is passionate in his call to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through medium of gospel music. He shared about how his mentor, Bishop Marvin Winans "took him to school" very early in his career, on being the originator of urban praise and worship in introducing the praise team concept to the black church (previously prevalent only in white churches), his method of rearranging classic traditional gospel songs, and reintroducing them to this generation, and how he step out on faith to establish his production company after being inspired by and having seen what producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Prince were doing with their companies. He spoke to high divorce rate in the church as inspiration behind the project, "God, Love and Romance." One of our calle ...

They don't know that Pharrell, Timbaland and Devante Swing all came from Teddy Riley and he came from Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis
Control is the third studio album by American recording artist Janet Jackson, released on February 4, 1986 by A&M Records. Her collaborations with songwriters and record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis resulted in an unconventional sound: a fusion of rhythm and blues, funk, disco, rap vocals, an...
to Prince for kicking Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis out The Time. Weren't for him, there'd be a whole lot less dope Janet Jackson tracks.
You have some schmutz on your jimmy jam
You know you've made it when Jimmy Jam picks up on the first ring.
Thank you so much my Jimmy Jam! I love you to life and can't wait for late night sessions in the gym!
To find a safe place in life is a thing of wonder and should be appreciated to the fullest. To be blessed to continue to find safe places is beyond words. I am one of those blessed people. I can't name everyone who has been a safe place because I know far too many harbors, but I will shout out to those I have had the pleasure of being with recently throughout the marvelous month of May straight on into June, especially Bean (Jordan), Jacob, Sunshine Victoria), Ryan, RayRay Michael), Jimmy Jam (James), Chris, Colleen, Greg and my beloved CeeCee Cassie). The rest of y'all know who you are and so do I! In honor of the Super Moon! :-)
Flight time like my name were Jimmy Jam
Keys to my heart: play anything produced by Teddy Riley, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, or Chuckii Booker.

If Jimmy Jam &Terry Lewis are working on it, it's going to be another classic.& I'm waiting on a release date until I believe it .

Dream guitars don't come cheap. Traugott guitars start at $26,500. Add 12 strings and inlays by Larry Robinson and you're talking $30K to $40K (or more?). Would you take these to the local open mic, or your latest gig? What say ye, musicians?
I was just looking at the production credits for "Color Change!" and noticed you worked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, so cool!
There may be a jimmy jam in the hood today / tonight

TRUE! Influential that time it seemed like Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis and L.A. Reid/Babyface had hit after hit.
Tim, Hit-Boy, Pharrell, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and Harmony should do Brandy's album.
In 1986 Jimmy Jam, Terry and Janet Jackson teamed and introduced the 'New Jack Swing' and everyone else followed.
Bhfdkedv I'm in Jimmy Jam and they're playing Kelly's entire album!!!

This is the song "She's My Love Thang" by Ralph Tresvant. Produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Enjoy!. "Great music is eternal". I do not own any copyrights.
End of an era! The Rendezvous. Rendezvous Rest Waltham is being sold. For good or bad that's was where I played for 20 + years. George Leh, Roomful (in the early years), Blue Hornets. Shirley Lewis & Walter Joyce just two years ago for the Jumpin' George fundriser. Along with others. I say George Leh and the Rockin' Shoe's first, because when I heard George Leh sing "Sweet Home Chicago". I wanted to be a bandleader/pro singer! Good luck to Jimmy, He ran that place out of pocket for. (I don't know) 30 years. Gerry Beaudoin, Stevie Silver. And even Billy k. Billy Karedes are part of history soon. The Watch city band opened for George Leh, in our early days. Even opened for Duke Robillard. Think of all the other people that came thru that room. Angel did the sound for years. It would really class the place up if Angel Logan would go back there one last time. Dave Cormier, 3 too many. Joe Russo what a voice Kevin Pinkham. Kevin Johnson. The Bartenders Alex, Kenny & linda. Brad Faucker is with Billy K. This We ...

I truly feel that Kurt Cobain was one of the best song writers of my lifetime. I know some will disagree, but come on! This guy could take two guitar chords and then completely serenade it with the catchiest vocal melodies possible. He truly inspires me as a musician. Jimmi Hendrix was pretty swell as well. Hehe...
Before The Neptunes. Before Stargate. Before The Underdogs. There was Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. For over three decades, the Minneapolis based duo has created some of music's biggest hits. Their knack for creating R&B tunes with strong cross over appeal is their claim to fame. Since they started in…

Former new Edition member Ralph Tresvant on his biggest classic ever as produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, S.O.S. Band, Alexander O'Neal), on some Marvinesque mood... MFSB
Ratchet Of The Day: The album was produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Babyface, Teddy Riley, Tim & Bob, I was excited, this was supposed to be slam dunk. I did spend the rest of year listening to the album, the vocals were okay, some harmonies were definitely out of "style", the effort was 5 out of 10. Dont get me started on the production, it was weak. Where did it all go wrong for the hitmakers? Even up to date Boyz II Men tenth album "Twenty" hasnt sold even a million copies worldwide since its release in 2011. This is the state of R&B. Right now R&B is on life support. I know they are few cats out there still keeping it real. Teddy Riley gotta step up his game on his next project with GUY or Blackstreet. The past is prologue?
This legendary music producing duo from the funk rock group called The Time went on to become the greatest music producers of the '80s & '90s, spawning more hits than any other producers in the business. It's high these architects of the Minneapolis sound is inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, we music lovers salute you!
Featured album : janet. by Janet Jackson This is my all time fav album by her...pure 90's bliss Due to increasing commentary that her success in the music industry was attributed to being a member of the Jackson family and a producer-dependent artist, she made a concentrated effort to take greater creative control of her new album. Its title, read "Janet, period.", is meant to disassociate her public image from that of her family, essentially dropping the Jackson surname. She wrote all lyrics for the album, in addition to co-producing every song and co-writing each of their arrangements with record producers and long-time collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
I hope Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis r on deck, u can't phuck with perfection... :-D
Jimmy Jam @ Terry Lewis did a great job sampling this for Luther Vandross's "Shine" song. (
