Jim Chappell

Smooth jazz pianist Jim Chappell was born and raised in Michigan, initially influenced by the pop songcraft of the Beatles and Jimmy Webb. After spending the better part of his early adult years traveling across the country, he settled in Nashville and became a songwriter; finding the work unfulfilling, however, Chappell relocated to California, where he found work as an accompanist for the modern dance department at UCLA. He self-released his debut album, Tender Ritual, in 1986, selling over 12,000 copies of the record by traveling from store to store; Chappell then signed to Music West, where he issued a series of LPs including Dusk, Living the Northern Summer, and Nightsongs and Lullabies. Moving to Real Music, he scored his biggest hit to date with In Search of the Magic, followed in quick succession by Over the Top, Manila Nights, and Laughter at Dawn. Chappell's debut release for new label Gallery Records, Acadia, appeared in 1996. The pianist was then absent from the studio for a number of years before re-emerging after the turn of the millennium with 2003’s Serenity Rush on his Unspeakable Freedom Music label. Other Unspeakable Freedom releases would follow, including Coming Through in 2005, Sad Music Moods and Comfort Songs in 2008, Panorama in 2010, and A Morning Full of Mood in 2011. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

In 1979 I heard Tender Ritual. I was blown away. I have all but one of his albums. His music remains ageless....

When I first read about the songs in "Living the Northern Summer" about some were of him and his dad and the memories he put into his music, I was floored. It took me right back to things Dad and I used to do. Great artist.

To Mandy, Gilberto, dmajor, and others:
You all seem like such nice people. You appreciate the stillness and peace and beauty in this music. Me too. I feell that Chappell is much more sensitive and romantic than George Winston, although in the same genre.

I am happy I found this artist. He appeared on my Mannheim Steamroller station. I am sure I will make a station strictly with music similiar to that of this artist.

Introduced to this awesome artist, by my best friend 12 years ago, I'd come home to days of her composing his music on the living room floor. Unbelievable ear she had for his works. When I hear Jim Chappell it is the only time in life (other than flying), when I feel free.

I like his playing very much with its simple chord structure
