Bibliography: Jim Baldwin

I live in Bristol with my wife Pat and dog Phoebe in the south west of England.  My first wife died of cancer 15 years ago. I remarried 10 years ago. Our children are away in other parts of UK.

Career: I have had several jobs as physicist, mathematician and computer scientist and worked as Professor of Artificial Intelligence at University of Bristol for many years. I am now retired but still hold the posts of Senior Research Fellow and Emeritus Professor. My work has taken me all over the world and have been very happy times.

Music Interests: After having piano lessons as a child I gave up playing until I was about 30. When young I was a choir boy and enjoyed singing. I regained my interest in music later and bought a Challen Piano and Thomas Organ. Since then I have owned many instruments including Hammond Organ, Yamama SY77 synth, many Yamaha digital pianos and a few keyboards. I now play the Yamaha CVP 509 with the Motif XS Rack, Tyros 4  and EL900. I also learned to play guitar and for some years this was my main instrument. I had several Yamama acoustic and electric guitars.

My interests in music are very varied and like to listen to classical, modern jazz, big band, rock , folk styles. My favourite song writers are many but in particular Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Randy Newman, Neil Young, Eric Bogle, Paul Simon, John Lennon, Shane MacGowan, Tom Waits, Lily Allen, Alicia Keys  and so many more. My favourite keyboardists are Rick Wakeman, Oscar Peterson, Barbara Dennerlein, Enya, Hiromi, Jacques Loussier and many more. My favourite singers are Kate Melua, Mike Scot,  Norah Jones, Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Adele, Charlotte Church, Chris Rea, Christy Moore, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald, Eva Cassidy and so many more. My favourite groups and bands are: U2, Oasis, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Cold Play, Genesis, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Rolling Stones, Waterboys, Levellers and again many more.

I enjoy writing songs and arranging them. This is made so much easier with modern keyboards, digital pianos and synthesisers and computer technology. Finding an unusual chord progression, writing lyrics is all part of the fun of song writing. Of course writing a song which is a real success is extremely difficult. Maybe one day … one day.

There are so many talented musicians playing their keyboards and put their contributions on here. I enjoy listening to their music and pleased to have their friendship. It helps to make retirement a happy and busy time.
