In 1996 the owner of the now defunct ‘Radio Valencia’ was booked Jim Ryan's group into his San Francisco eating place and asked him the name of his band. He said, “ah, er . . . forward motion . . . no . . . Forward Energy,” and that’s been it for the past 10 years through many player configurations and gigs in the S.F. bay area, up and down the West Coast, Chicago & NYC. Forward Energy now has six CD recordings. Jim's free jazz apprenticeship began with Steve Lacy’s weekly open free jams in the early ‘70s but he’d been listening to the great players since he was a tiny tot attempting to make music on the piano and trombone. The massive influx of young, free players to Paris found him already there and ready to wail....he's still wailing...
