The mix of their own songs vs. covers varies widely. ... Moving to the west 'coa the last sentence should read: Moving to the west 'coast,' there's the late Kate Wolf.

—Richard Hess, Folk Music Digest
'For lovers of Appalachian folk and Americana, who also think it's important that songs have substantive meaning, Jim Savarino's album 'Sun Dreams' is a must-have! Timeless, poetic and with passion he sings about life, hope, love, nature and also about the catastrophic way of coal mining in the Appalachian Mountains (his song 'Where Have The Mountains Gone?' features in the movie 'Rise Up ! West Virginia').'
—Rootsville, CD Review (Europe)
This self-produced CD features Jim Savarino's beautifully plaintive singing, thoughtful songs, and elegantly simple arrangements. His lyrics and melodies have a timeless quality, with strong, poetic song forms and roots in folk, bluegrass, and country.
