Senator Jimmy D

Jimmy Douglass is a legend in the music game. Most people know him as Senator Jimmy D, the engineer for Timbland but his story starts way before that. Jimmy's worked with The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin, and Hall & Oates to name but a FEW. He's considered one of the best, if not the best engineer in the music industry today. He has what's been called a "magical ear" and it only seems fitting that he and Timbaland work so well together.

There's not a lot of information on Jimmy as there should be but I was able to find a few very interesting articles. This first article talks about how Jimmy started out and his story on how he came to meet Timbo. This second article talks more about what equipment he uses and how he creates the sound he does. This last article Jimmy talks a lot about using Pro Tools and how he makes it work for him.

Finally here's a summarized list of Jimmy Douglass' Discography over the years. It's important to know that's it's not just Timbaland making the music but that he has a very good team around him helping to create those beats we all know and love. Tim only picks the best! Shout out to my man Big A for the info!
