SCROLL FOR "IRIE" MUSIC DEMO
guitarist - vocalist - composer - band leader
It is said that Jimmy plays the tunes you like to hear in his own unique style.
Jimmy Dale may be an anomaly in Los Angeles, CA! From California to Germany, from Honolulu to Italy, Jimmy is an established musician and composer well respected in the jazz circles, and popular in rock, pop, jazz and blues genres with his five piece JIMMY DALE BAND, and widely acclaimed in the reggae community with his JIMMY DALE’S IRIE BAND which was awarded Top Ten Reggae USA sponsored by Reggae Report.
Jimmy has played with legendary bands including: The Drifters, Platters, The Diamonds, The Coasters, Little Anthony and the Imperials, and the fabulous Penguins. He’s opened for Ziggy Marley, Bob Marley’s “Wailers”, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Third World, and is heard playing guitar on Big Mountain’s CD “Unity” on the hit tune “Baby I Love Your Way” which sold millions. One of Jimmy’s most popular reggae’ compositions, “Rub A Dub” is included in the score of the motion picture, “Sunset Heat” starring Dennis Hopper. Other songs from his IRIE CD, “FREEDOM OF CHOICE,” can be heard on Nickelodeon’s cable network.
Jimmy is very proud of these jazz Singles: “Dear Mr. Benson,” a tribute to George Benson, famed guitarist and recording artist, and “Agi’s Tune” the composition he wrote and recorded for his late wife who passed from cancer. These compositions are considered the most emotional and creative of Jimmy’s original tunes thus far.
Of his success, Jimmy says:
“I was mentored by the best, guitarist Ted Green, Carl Verheyen, Davis Ramey, trumpet/composition with Randy Masters and Tony Horowitz; Joe Sekon, mathematical composition, Ray Drummond, bass and Ray Brown, trumpet and arrangements. But, famed pianist/composer/arranger, Don Schamber had the biggest influence. He taught me how to appreciate and understand jazz, how to compose and had a profound affect on my personal growth and my career.”
Currently Jimmy has been motivated to write and compose tunes about society and the damage done to our planet and our spirits. PLANET BLUE a Latin jazz tune, is ready to be released, with a powerful reggae’ composition, FAME AND MONEY to follow. “We must do better. Please be kind.” Several other tunes are in early stages of development. His favorite activity (other than tennis or softball) is performing live and interacting with the audience at many usual venues, VIP events, cruise ships, fairs, yacht clubs, and charity events.
