The Swan is amazing!
Frenz | Zeist,Netherlands | 05/31/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Probably the best smooth jazz CD from BJ. The Swan is my all-time favourite track, i can listen to this song forever, absolute masterpiece. La Delaissado,Prospero and Quietly Crazy For You, although heavily jazzed up with somehow messy improvisations from Peter Erskine on drums have the same "New Age" synths that makes the Swan so extra loveable, but the Swan is more organized."
Hidden Treasure Found At Last!

"This is a "black pearl" of the Bob James discography, and one not to be overlooked at that. Recorded around the same time as FOXIE (circa. 1983), it was originally released only in Japan. This release was issued for the first time in the U. S. along with the bulk of his vintage solo material on Warner Bros, and Tappan Zee (Bob's own label). The material ranges from dreamy and graceful ("The Swan", "Water Music", and "La Delaissado"--also from Haute-Auvergne), to dizzying ("Prospero" and "Ensenada Madness"). The CD closes with a number by the late Mike Lawrence ( "Quietly Crazy For You"). THE SWAN is truly a treasure in every sense!"
Simply amazing!

"I have been a Bob James fan for very long and I try not to have favourite Bob James albums. However, if I have to choose it has to be between "The Swan" and "Grand Piano Canyon". I bought The Swan in 1984 (in South Africa - it must have been released there simultaneously as the Japanese edition) as I did with all my Bob James music: walk into the record store, take the new BJ album off the shelve, pay and walk out. I used to sit down at home and listen quietly in my armchair. I remember my delight listening to it for the first time as if it was yesterday. The Swan, La Delaissade, Quietly Crazy for You and Watermusic are performed superbly."
