    Jimmy was one of the most positive,supportive and giving musicians I encountered in NYC. When Jimmy smiled it was like the sun coming out.

    I played extra with the NY Philharmonic and Jimmy always was there to help me.

    Manny was privileged to have Jimmy in his life.

    I studied with Jimmy in my last year at Mannes. What a sweet man and wonderful player. It was fun to see him and John Ware interact. How many violin and piano concertos did they play together on? Did you know that Jimmy played handball with Jerry Stiller at the Y on 63rd St?

    I'd often run into Jimmy and his wife on W. 72nd St.
