Bob James - One

180g Vinyl, LP - EVLP-034 CL - MSRP €52.00

Jazz funk at its best! The second album from jazz keyboardist and former Fourplay member Bob James features lush, experimental tracks, including "Nautilus", which has been sampled hundreds of times (especially in hip-hop).

"In The Garden" and "Night on Bald Mountain" are arrangements of two very different pieces of classical music - fascinating for anyone who appreciates complex arrangements played with funky, jazzy and consummate musicality. In "Soulero", subtle sounds and rhythms overlap in a bolero style.

Recorded at the legendary Van Gelder Studios and with the strong backing of Steve Gadd and Idris Muhammad on drums, Grover Washington on saxophone and Gary King on bass, this is an important album for the early genre of 'smooth jazz'.

We recommend the use of "L'Art du Son" LP cleaner to wet wash your vinyl. Even new records of high quality production will benefit from this.
