CD Reviews

Classic Bob James...with a retro twist....
Gregg A. Morris | TALLAHASSEE, FL United States | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I figured this to be another great "smooth jazz" effort from Bob James, which wouuld have been great...but was even more pleasantly surprised to find that this entire cd is a throwback to 1980's contemporary jazz with a lean towards pop & r&b. It is refreshing to hear a little retro flavor, especially with the smart and polished use of synthesisers throughout. This is probably the most melodic cd from James since his 1996 effort, entitled "Playin' Hooky".
I would recommend this new one especially for those who truly miss the Yellowjackets, Lee Ritenour and Joe Sample releases from the mid to late eighties.
Just Listen..."
Pleasurable trip back to the 80's

"I have ordered this CD from Amazon and since arriving found it very hard to put down. It is very good to hear Bob's music like the music which made me become a BJ fan in the late 70's. The individual artists on this CD bring the best out of each track just like it did on albums like "Touchdown" and "H". Maybe I'm a bit nostalgic here because of some very familiar guitar sounds!
I think Bob James fans will find this a pleasurable addition to their collections."

"Bob James is the Picasso of the keyboard. His "Taxi" theme is so recognizable and just a small part of his influence in jazz music. His role in the group Foreplay is just another facet in the music world. This CD takes the player to the synth side of his ivory-tickling quest for rubbing our ears together to start a fire in our souls.
"Choose Me" is one of the coolest tunes I've heard in a long time and prompted me to purchase the project."
