Brothers Ali – Jazz, Funk & R&B – Original ‘George Clinton & P-Funk’ Members
Jimmy and Jerome Ali
Brothers Ali are Las Vegas’ #1 Jazz, Funk and R&B Band! They are the twin sons of Brenda and the late Jimmy Ali, Sr., an avid jazz enthusiast and pianist born in Detroit, MI at a time when Barry Gordy’s Motown Sound was igniting the world. They quickly embraced R&B. and such great jazz artist as Charlie Parker, Eddie Harris, Stan Getz and Art Blakey.
As young teens, Jimmy & Jerome were organizing “jam sessions!”. All of the neighborhood musicians would come & wait their turn to jam with “the twins”. Their Dad Jimmy Ali Sr., had an ongoing, open door policy allowing neighborhood teens to come over & rehearse so that they could form bands & perform at the High schools & local hot spots with the Ali Boys. Some awesome talent emerged from that basement /”rehearsal hall” on Littlefield Street. Mr. Ali (Bart) as he was affectionately called, had a tough policy to abide by~ NO DRUGS, NO DRAMA!! And yes, he WOULD enforce it. Mr. Ali often said he would rather have all the teens at his house rather than going to all of the houses looking for his teens…
