Jim Horn


Oral History Information

Jim Horn, part of the “Wrecking Crew”, started playing the saxophone as a child and eventually expanded his musical reach to include the flute, oboe, and French horn, even playing the oboe on a Carpenters album. Jim firmly believes that the key to being a successful session player is having the determination to always play your best. Jim can be heard on such recordings as “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night”, and Canned Heat’s “Goin’ Up Country” to just name a few. If you hear a sax or flute on a recording, there’s a pretty good chance that it is Jim!
