Bob James Trio

Bob James' recordings have practically defined pop/jazz and crossover during the past few decades. Very influenced by pop and movie music, James has often featured R&B-ish soloists (most notably Grover Washington, Jr.) who add a jazz touch to what is essentially an instrumental pop set. He actually started out in music going in a much different direction. In 1962, James recorded a bop-ish trio set for Mercury, and three years later his album for ESP was quite avant-garde, with electronic tapes used for effects. After a period with Sarah Vaughan (1965-1968), he became a studio musician, and by 1973 was arranging and working as a producer for CTI. In 1974, James recorded his first purely commercial effort as a leader; he later made big-selling albums for his own Tappan Zee label, Columbia, and Warner Bros., including collaborations with Earl Klugh and David Sanborn. James remains relatively busy in the studio and since 2000 has released several albums including Dancing on the Water in 2001, That Steamin' Feelin' in 2002, Hi-Fi in 2003, and Urban Flamingo in 2006, among others. In 2011, James paired with pianist Keiko Matsui for Altair & Vega. Two years later, he delivered his second collaboration with saxophonist David Sanborn, 2013's Quartette Humaine. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Bought this cd when it first released. Still love it as though I just heard it for the first time!
Quiet Now, just what I needed. Bob James is amazing.

The bio does not do the man credit. His early work in the mid 70's was fantastic. He ranks as one of the best.
Nice treatment of a standard. Kept me listening. Enjoyed it.

That's a pretty weak innuendo about Grover being an R&B Soloist as remarked in Bob James' bio. Many musicians have fused a balance between pop and jazz. In fact, most artists resent labels. Grover was the innovator for smooth jazz and smooth jazz improvisatio n . His innovative voice opened the door for many other musicians, i.e. Boney James, Kenny G, Ronnie Laws, etc. If nothing else, jazz is a free form of expression humbly paying respect to other in-the-box genres.

His straight-ahe a d , acoustic jazz work is really quite good -- perhaps superior is a better word -- and it is unfortunate that it apparently does not interest him enough to record in this genre more often.
He also did a great job on the Taxi theme song.
saw fourplay at winter park jazz 2009 amazing
I'd have to put Bob ames up there with Joe Sample.
