about

The original version of "Beautiful Sound" featured my son, Jason, and me trading off verses on the lead vocal. Doing so only seemed fair, since we co-wrote this song.

Here's that original recording, thrown in as a bonus track on this album.

lyrics

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR SINGING A SONG
WITH A BEAUTIFUL MELODY.
BUT IT’S NO FUN AT ALL TO SING IT ALONE.
WON'T YOU SING IT ALONG WITH ME?
LET’S LIVE ON A SONG AND PLAY ON A RHYME.
THERE'S A BEAUTIFUL HARMONY.
IF THERE'S A PROBLEM OR PLACE THAT TEARS YOU APART,
LET THE MUSIC SET YOU FREE.
ALL THE PEOPLE WALKING DOWN THAT CROWDED AVENUE,
THEY’D HEAR THAT HAPPY SONG
AND THEY’D CHASE AWAY THE BLUES.
A MOMENT OF WORDS, LIKE A SCULPTURE OF CLAY,
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SOUND…FOR A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

WITH BEAUTIFUL SMILES COME STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
AND THE SOUND OF A SYMPHONY,
WE’LL PLAY IN THE SUN WHILE UNDER THE SHADE,
AND YOU DRIFT AWAY TO DREAM.
ALL THE CHILDREN PASSING BY WOULD LOVE THE SONG WE SING.
LIKE A MOTHER’S LULLABY, IT ECHOES IN THE SPRING.
FORGET AND FORGIVE, LET TROUBLE FADE AWAY.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SOUND…FOR A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL SOUND. LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY.
TO A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

Jack Nimersheim Fort Mitchell, Kentucky

Fifty years!

That's how much time has passed since I first stepped on stage, picked up a guitar, and started playing music for the folks "out there".

Lucky for you, I don't have any recordings of those "teenage" performances. The albums on this page, however, provide a pretty good retrospective of the music I've been fortunate enough to help create, between the early '70s and now.
