There's a reason legendary blues Diva Etta James calls Jimmy Z her "Hootchie Cootchie Man" and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics calls him "the best harmonica player in the world." Jimmy attracts attention. He caught the attention of Rod Stewart, Tom Petty and the Eurythmics, all of whom he recorded and toured with. He also caught the attention of Dr. Dre, Barry White, Ziggy Marley, Yes, Bon Jovi, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and countless others who sought out Jimmy Z's blazing harmonica and soulful saxophone to spice up their recordings.

From a smoky 20 seat bar in Sacramento to the 300,000 person sold out Rock In Rio concert with Rod Stewart, in Brazil. Jimmy has toured the world blowing crowds away
with his electrifying stage presence. Performing in 1988 with the Eurythmics for the Nelson Mandela Concert at Wembly Stadium and televised to one billion people worldwide, Jimmy's harmonica solo on Must Have Been an Angel brought the world to its knees.

In 1988, Jimmy's first solo instrumental album was for Miles Copeland, the owner of IRS Records, called "Anytime, Anyplace!" In 1991, legendary rap-producer Dr. Dre produced Jimmy Z's next album "Muzical Madness", featuring Jimmy on lead vocals. In addition, Jimmy Z and Dr. Dre co-wrote all the songs.

Jimmy Z has appeared and acted in the movies; Georgia, The Doors, Wild At Heart, and The Shrink Is In, as well as concert films with Rod Stewart, Tom Petty, Jaguares and the Eurythmics. He has scored numerous videos and films as well.

He is has been touring with the legendary Mexican rock band Jaguares and plays harmonica on the international hit single "Te Lo Pido,Por Favor" as well as fronting his own Blues-Rock band, ZTribe. The new ZTribe CD, Caught Inside is a true indication of Jimmy's amazing abilities with the harmonica, saxophone and singing ability.
