      Jimmy Herring

      The 5 of 7 finds Herring joined by bassist Kevin Scott, drummer Darren Stanley, longtime collaborator Matt Slocum on keyboards (Hammond B3, clavinet), and vocalist and guitarist Rick Lollar. Rick, Matt, and Kevin had a band together called King Baby, explains Herring from his home in Atlanta, and I heard their record...I couldnt help but think, man, if I could get together, play some of Ricks songs, some of my songs, some covers, and maybe write a few things together, we may be on to something From fatback, roadhouse R&B to more expansive, jazz-inflected explorations, The 5 of 7 demonstrates Herrings chops not just as a musician, but as a bandleader and catalyst. The novel vocal element is just one more texture at his disposal. With instrumental music, he reflects, people expect to hear your solos, but theyve just heard you play the melody! You can overexpose your voice. With Rick, I can play behind him, then step out with a solo, and give a fresh feeling to the song -- take it to another place. Setting out on the road this September, Herring is typically modest when describing what audiences can expect from The 5 of 7: Therell be vocals, therell be instrumentals. There will be funk and rock and roll, with some songs leaning towards more sophisticated harmony...but, to me, its just music.
