Wow, hadn't seen him in a few years, hoping to again, bummer. R.I.P.

In the early sixties Jim was a Getzen artist and "The Happy Jazz Band" played in San Antonio at the club called "The Landing". Jim's father, also named Jim, founded a company called Pace Picante. Our good friend at Getzen, Sandy Sandberg, would receive frequent shipments of chile ingredients from Jim and I was fortunate to be invited many times to Sandy and Ruth's house for "Uncle Sandy's Corn Chile". In Wisconsin back then, chile ingredients were quite rare and the people invited were the likes of Bill Bell, Lewis Van Haney and Otto, the Meinl tuba rep that Getzen distributed. Bell and Van Haney were professional consumers of adult beverages and Otto being German...well let's just say he kept up. Sandy would cook up his famous chile and put out the other hot stuff Jim had sent and of course, everybody thought they could handle it. After a "bit" of liquid refreshment I felt there was nothing I couldn't handle but whatever was in those cans of preserved peppers blew my taste buds out.

Jim played his rear off to the end and was always faithful to the music he loved.

Jim devoted his life to music and the horn, which is something few can say.

A life well lived! Rest in Peace, Mr. Cullum.

I used to listen to "Live From the Landing" every Saturday on the UNT radio station. Always fun stuff--often he had guest stars like Clark Terry.

I was lucky enough to have seen him perform several times and have some of his recordings. He was a great performer and will be missed.
