Jimmy Sommers Biography

Jimmy Sommers Wildfox
Jimmy Sommers Time Stands Still

On his first album, James Cafe, smooth jazz saxman Jimmy Sommers was able to score a Top 20 NAC (New Adult Contemporary) single with the title track.

The Mt. Prospect, IL, native first picked the alto saxophone in the fourth grade when on “instrument day” he chose the sax, even though he didn’t know what it was. His first recording was as a featured soloist with the MacArthur Junior High School jazz band. As a teen, he would use fake IDs to sneak into nearby Chicago nightclubs such as Kingston Mines to jam with blues musicians. Attending on a music performance scholarship at Southern Illinois University, Sommers began leading his own band. He was invited to play the “Star Spangled Banner” at center court for a Chicago Bulls game. During Atlanta’s 1996 Olympic summer games, Sommers performed for the athletes in the Olympic Village. Sommers completed his industrial engineering degree at Southern Illinois University a semester early so he could get to Los Angeles and pursue his dream that much faster.

In L.A., he played on remix sessions for the likes of Chaka Khan, George Clinton, Boyz II Men, 2Pac,DJ Quik, Wyclef Jean, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. To make ends meet, Sommers started moonlighting in modeling, appearing on the cover of a Harlequin romance novel and landing a small role on the CBS network soap opera The Young and the Restless playing the character Marcus.

A brief return to Chicago found Sommers at the Leo Burnett Advertising Agency producing commercials for big-name clients like Disney and Miller Lite. Being responsible for the visuals and the music for those spots, as well as getting things in on deadline and on budget, inspired Sommers to apply the same discipline to his music. His music remained a priority, culminating in him flying to the South of France and Asia to lead a band that included drummer Mel Gaynor from English rock bandSimple Minds, bassist Deon Estus from George Michael‘s band, and pianist Kenny Moore from Tina Turner‘s band. The band had dates around Europe including a performance for Princess Stephanie.

True to Myself

Frustrated with the A&R people at the major labels,Sommers used his own money to start up his own record label, Gemini Records. He wanted the sound and vibe of his first CD to be a combination of ’70s soul and ’90s production sheen. After being impressed with the solo debut of Eric Benet, True to Myself, and meeting him backstage after a concert, Sommers made the trek from Chicago to Milwaukee to talk to Benet and his cousin/producer George Nash Jr. about working with him on his premier release. Convincing the pair to work on spec, Sommers began work on his first album.

360 Urban Groove

After the release of the CD James Cafe, Sommers was invited to a Christmas party at the Malibu mansion of hair-care magnate John Paul DeJoria and found himself sitting next to rocker Rod Stewart at the bar. During the party,Sommers jammed with Stewart on a few tunes. A couple of weeks later, Sommers was asked to attend a meeting with DeJoria. DeJoria bought 150,000 copies of a sampler CD that included tracks from James Cafe that were put into gift sets of DeJoria’s Paul Mitchell shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer. The “Sommers Treat” package was sold at 81,000 salons worldwide. A short time later, Sommers was able to secure a distribution deal with Universal Music. In 2001 he followed up with 360 Urban Groove, which was released by Higher Octave.



Leonardo Dicaprio, through his foundation, donated $2 Million to Ocean %, an international funder’s collaborative. This is in order to stop set up marine reserves and stop over fishing in the five oceans of the world.

The contribution of Leonardo Dicaprio advanced efforts to protect Antarctica, created a vast marine monument in remote Pacific waters of the USA, and supported the protection of threatened shark populations.


Leonardo Dicaprio said that, with the funds, they are making more impactful, smarter investments for the future of our planet. He is supporting the projects of Ocean 5 because they are improving directly ocean health by creating marine reserves and stopping over fishing.

Kristian Parker, the chairman of the Geneva-based Oak Foundation, said that the foundation of Leonardo Dicaprio is a valued partner of Ocean 5 and the personal commitment of the actor is phenomenal since he brings enormous enthusiasm and energy to the work of the foundation for the oceans.

According to the chairman and founder of the California-based Waitt Foundation, Ted Waitt, Dicaprio and his foundation are bringing a strategic attention to helping coastal communities protect biodiversity. The funds will help in the development of future initiatives and will support directly local organizations working to strengthen controls on illegal fishing and to create marine reserves. The Dicaprio’s fund supported also a group of 6 organizations working successfully to secure new global trade restrictions for endangered sharks and an international group of organizations seeking to create largest protected zones of the world in the waters around Antarctica.


Leonardo Dicaprio said that about 250 million years ago, a cataclysmic extinction event extinguished life from our planet and this event could happen again. The celebrity was saying this in a documentary of four series about climate change directed by the director of the 11th Hour film, Leila Conners.

The actor said that a man ade climate change could extinct almost all life on our planet.

According to scientists featuring in the film, the cause of this extinction was a fast global warming.

During the Permian, these grasses released by volcanic eruptions warmed the oceans and led to the release of methane that triggered global warming.

Dr. Michael Benton of the University of Bristol said that no matter the origin of carbon dioxide, whether from a volcano or from human activity, the end effect is the same for the atmosphere. Leonardo Dicaprio says that in order to end this process, the world community must work together, step forward, and take decisive action. For responding to climate change, Dicaprio call for the largest movement in human history since it can mean the survival of mankind.

About Jimmy Sommers

If ever there was a man who could testify to the power of creating, sharing and enjoying music, its smooth and soulful saxophonist Jimmy Sommers. His infectious alto sax playing has proven time and again to be a sound at once dramatic, spirited and funky, yet seductive and unabashedly romantic.
Jimmy Sommers’ debut album, James Café, introduced him as a strikingly fresh presence in the NAC arena. Its 2001 follow-up, the self-produced 360 Urban Groove, took things to another level by featuring his masterful cover of Boz Scaggs’ classic “Lowdown,” which went all the way to #2 on Radio & Records’ Smooth Jazz Chart (“I saved my #1 charter for the new album,” Jimmy quips). Now, just in time for the summer of 2003, Sommers presents his most scorching yet intoxicating collection to date, Lovelife, slated for release August 5 on his own Gemini Records imprint via Higher Octave/EMD.


“The concept, if you want to call it that, is simple,” Sommers states. “I love music…and I love life!”

Simplicity is a beautiful thing in the hands of a performing natural like Jimmy. It means that you stick to and improve upon formulas that are true to your heart and good for the souls of the masses. For Sommers, that means serving up funky-fun dance grooves and sensually romantic ballads in well-balanced proportion, then spicing the result with special guests/friends from both the R&B and smooth jazz worlds. In the past, those guests have ranged from Norman Brown and Les Nubians to Raphael Saadiq, Ginuwine and Eric Bene’t.
