Product Description

Product Description

This is the first collaboration of these two musicians since 1986, when they recorded the very successful Double Vision record. The new album is a straight and relaxed jazz album with James Genus on bass and Steve Gadd on drums. It is a musical tribute to Dave Brubeck, especially of his recordings with Paul Desmond. The career of Bob James is long, varied and continues to evolve at every turn. From his first days in Marshall, Missouri, the music of Bob James has captivated audiences throughout the world. Bob was discovered by Quincy Jones at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival in 1963, James recorded his first solo album, Bold Conceptions, that year for Mercury Records. He has recorded 58 albums and received innumerable awards through five decades. One of the most commercially successful American saxophonists to earn prominence since the 1980s, David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album.

By Seagull
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful surprise. I've always loved David Sanborn's alto tone and his heartfelt playing but often tired of hearing the airless funk context in which it was placed. This album has a great soundworld - it's all acoustic, which means I can for once appreciate Bob James' playing. I like his delicate touch on this album. James Genus is a great basist - he's on so many superb albums & Steve Gadd needs no introduction - tight, pulsing and subtle playing from them both. This album is more than the sum of its parts - it gently swings, pulses and draws you in. It's beautifully recorded and very warm and immediate. Both James and Sanborn seem to really breathe easy away from their often more formulaic recorded contexts, which have their pleasures but can pall easily. Here James & Sanborn complement one another very well. I hope they'll make albums like this far far more frequently. Both are great mature artists and this album shows what potential they have to make great music. More please, and Mr James stay away from those synths, you can play the piano memorably. Sanborn sounds so compelling and beautiful. Essential, hugely enjoyable, intelligent and emotionally honest music.

I remember 1986 when I heard them for the first time. This album is totally different and one can truly appreaciate the musical mastery behind this album. The album is very melodic with the timing, intuation the presentation is breathtaking, I believe it may win a few awards for 2013. Dave would be proud of this album.
