Some folks have called the Jim E Leggs Trio somewhat of a hybrid band. From a Latin-infused take on Nat King Cole's Nature Boy to updated arrangements of The Beatles, Steely Dan and Sting, the music of Jim E Leggs Trio offers an upbeat, fun and varied mix of Jazz, R&B and Pop that will lift your spirits. Their music is the thing, with vocals on some tunes, to instrumentals that tell their story. Jim E Leggs Trio's groove of well known tunes provide unexpected turns along the way.
p.s.: And yes, the name of the Trio comes from the Seinfeld reference about Kramer's girlfriend's restless leg syndrome, otherwise known, according to Kramer, as the "Jimmy Leg".
