A Spotlight on the “Dog’s Life” of This Session Great
Tonight’s edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with TOM LOUNGES” originally aired on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd @ 6pm CST
This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” spotlights one of those musicians everyone has heard but few have heard of — keyboardist JIMMY GREENSPOON.
Jimmy is a co-founder and still touring/recording member of the classic rock group THREE DOG NIGHT.
Jimmy has long been a top session musician who has recorded and toured with a “Who’s Who” of rock legends , including: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Jeff Beck, Lowell George, Cheech & Chong, The Beach Boys, Chris Hillman, and Linda Rondstadt, to name but a few.
On this program we play a new Three Dog Night recording, a new soundtrack tune from Jimmy; a killer track from the new DOORS Tribute album that teams Jimmy with guitar great Pat Travers; and a song by a famous Southern California rocker that features Jimmy’s on the recordings.
Listen to this show and get to know a musician you’ve loved for years even if you didn’t know his name. Jimmy Greenspoon has likely helped to color and enhance some off your favorite rock songs over the years. He’s a talent that has been in the shadows too long.
