Jim started playing the sax in the 5th grade and began a life-long love of playing music. He started playing gigs with bands when he was 16, while continuing his schooling. While studying Education at Indiana University, he picked up the flute and also had enough music credits for a Minor in Music. Jim played professionally for about 10 years with various rock bands in the 70's and has has continued playing ever since. Playing jazz standards is his passion now, and he continues to work at his craft.

Judy is a lifelong lover of music, but didn’t discover her singing ability until later in life. Once she started singing , she began to develop her talent through open stages, vocal coaching, and other musical opportunities. Singing in different genres, including blues, R & B, 60-70”s light rock, etc. This eventually led to finding her niche in singing jazz standards. Now with Jazz Elements, she continues to develop a singing style for herself in the tradition of the great singers of the past. Judy's photo was taken by John Stemple.
