He has also appeared in Brandon Allen’s sextet, Gareth’s Lockrane’s Big Band, and Pete Long’s ‘Jazz at the Philharmonic’. In 2012, he joined NYJO, and since January 2014 has held the lead alto chair with the band, appearing at the Proms, BBC’s The One Show, and on BBC Radio 4’s The Today Show, on Boxing Day morning. He was described as being amongst "the pick of the consistently excellent bunch" in Jack Massarik’s review of NYJO’s album ‘The Change’ in Jazzwise, and praised for his "fine solos" in the Evening Standard. Through much of 2013, Jim could be heard regularly opening the jam session at Charlie Wright’s with Rob Luft, appearing alongside Steve Fishwick, Sammy Mayne, and Martin Speake. Whilst studying Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at University College, Oxford, he directed and managed the Oxford University Big Band, organising concerts featuring Atlantic Records artist Kwabs and Mornington Lockett. In 2016 he received his MA from the Royal Academy of Music with Distinction, receiving a Postgraduate Diploma (DipRAM) for outstanding performance in his final recital.
