The Jam & Lewis Story, Part 1: Flyte of Fantasy

Jeff Lorez, Blues & Soul, 29 December 1992

To mark the tenth anniversary of Jam & Lewis's ultra-successful Flyte Tyme Productions, Jeff Lorez flew to Minneapolis and spoke to Jimmy Jam for more than eight hours over two nights — while Janet Jackson worked on her next album next door. His report presents the definitive version of the Jam & Lewis story straight from the horse's mouth, from the duo's initial meeting at junior high school
