Jim Stubblefield Group
Spanish guitars & Rumba Rhythms
Formed in 1996, the Jim Stubblefield Group, was a special project that included Jim Stubblefield (guitar), Michael Peters (guitar), Steve Hong (bass) and Jeff Packman (drums). The group performed together from 1996-1999 and released the "Rhythm of the Heart" (Natural Elements Records) album which was nominated for "Acoustic Album of the Year" by NAV Magazine (New Age Voice). Selections from the record also appeared on the 1999 release of "Pure Flamenco: Nuevo Flamenco Passion" (Neurodisc/Priority Records) which included music by Govi, Ottmar Liebert, Eric Hansen and other well known acoustic guitarists. Many pieces from this album were featured on several "411 Video Magazine" skateboarding videos of the late 90s.
In late 1999 the group membership changed to include Jean-Pierre Durand (guitar), Liza Carbé (bass), Joe Shotwell (drums) and Nicole Falzone (percussion). This lineup went on to form the world fusion group Incendio and in 2000 the album “Misterioso” was released under the band name “Incendio featuring Jim Stubblefield”. Since then, Incendio has released 11 albums and Jim Stubblefield has released 4 solo albums.
