Tom Ineck, host of Nebraska’s 89.3 KZUM: Afternoon Groove' program was over the moon when he recently got the chance to do an in depth interview with master engineer; Jim Anderson. Tom said….“Jim, I'm knocked out by your discography. It's an astonishing body of work. Forgive me for not knowing the extent. You must rival or exceed Rudy Van Gelder for the sheer number of recordings. On my Thursday "Afternoon Groove" program, I will do two, 2-hour shows featuring music from jazz albums you engineered, starting this week (1-3 p.m. Central) with a dozen releases of the 1980s and 1990s. I will follow up with a dozen releases of the last two decades, including "Clique." The programs are archived for two weeks at kzum.org. Cheers and Happy New Year!”
