Jim Rothermel & Steve Goodman

Jim Rothermel

Steve had a habit of finding some of the best musicians you never heard of and using them on his albums. Jim Rothermel is a case in point. Today, Jim mostly plays jazz/swing but he is adept at a variety of musical styles. He co-wrote a few songs with Steve to include "Banana Republics" and also performed session work on the following albums:
  • Words We Can Dance To 1976
  • High and Outside 1979
  • Hot Spot 1980
  • Affordable Art 1983
  • Santa Ana Winds 1984
Jim was also the leader of the Lincoln Park Pirates on the A Tribute To Steve Goodman double LP/CD.
