Sad news. Talk about a guy who could play anything and everything with style. RIP

Really sorry to hear this news.

First heard of Jimmy when 'Mr Shing-a-ling' came out - he was only 21 then. He was credited as Jimmy 'Fats' Ponder, but forever afterwards just Jimmy. So I never really thought of him as a fat guy and it wasn't apparent from his album sleeves. But the photos posted on the Colter Harper blog really do show him as a fat guy.

Always liked his playing. I have most of his albums as a leader and probably as a sideman, too, though I'm not sure about that.

One of the few guitarists to explore the Green/Young/Jones area of organ trios (try 'To reach a dream'). Not to sound like GG but to feel that way.

'Mean streets, no bridges' coming up next.

RIP Jimmy.

MG
