STUDIO JAMS MUSIC CLUB:  In the Music club this month – a terrific feature on the art and craft of writing country songs, from one of Nashville’s finest writers, Jon Ims. You may not have heard of him, but if you listen to country radio, you certainly have heard many of his songs. We also feature a track from one of our new shows – Episode #51…a very soulful take on the Sam Cooke classic “A Change Is Gonna Come” – with Mark Doyle on guitar, Donald Robinson on keyboards, Ron France on bass and Josh Dion on drums and vocals. A very nice track indeed. As always, there is another complete episode of Studio Jams to enjoy – this time it’s Episode #30, with guitarists Peppino D’Agostino, Stef Burns and Jackie King, along with Billy Johnson on drums, Marc Russo on saxophones and David Ewell on upright bass. Plus, another free Studio Jams “Bonus Track” for you to download. This month it’s “Unchain My Heart” with, among others, guitarist Jeff Golub and Matt King on keyboards.
