Narrow Escape Duo
Jim Baldessari (guitar, vocals) has been performing music since the age of 7. He plays several instruments, including bass and mandolin. Over the years he has played rock, folk and bluegrass, and has appeared on several independently produced CD's by other musicians. Jim also writes his own songs and enjoys drawing and painting.
Since 1999, Roberta and Jim have focused their talents and energies on performing jazz, blues, swing, and standards from the 1930's and 40's plus their own compositions and a few surprises. They bring warmth, elegance and a touch of humour to the music of the American Songbook.
