Born in Jamaica, this inventive saxophonist moved to Richmond, Virginia as a child, and began studying saxophone in 7th grade. His restless, searching artistic spirit carried him to New York City, where he played and recorded with Hamiett Bluiett in Harlem, and went on to play with Mose Allison, Betty Carter, and the Mingus Big Band, among others. Shim counts among his influences Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson and Gene Ammons, but credits Betty Carter with the best teaching that formed his style. These days you can find this sought after sideman playing with Vijay Iyer and other innovators on the forefront of jazz and on October 5 you can find him at the historic Attucks Theatre. Be there.
