4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 26 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Minus the two typically duff vocal tracks, that is, one of which is very pop-ish and, to my mind, quite out of place here, featuring Luther Vandross supported by Lisa Fischer and daughter Hilary James, whilst the other features just daughter Hilary, whose voice I've never liked. But, edit out those two and the remaining eight tracks make up a very fresh and satisfying album that kicks off in fine style with the broody, moody Lotus Leaves, co-written with Max Risenhoover.

The supporting cast includes Nick Moroch, Dean Brown, Jeff Mironov & Fareed Haque (guitars), Pino Palladino, Nathan East & Max Risenhoover (electric bass), Ron Carter (ac. bass), Andy Snitzer & the late Michael Brecker (saxes ~ Mike Brecker also plays digeridoo and EWI on one track), Michael Colina & Max Risenhoover (additional synths) and Max Risenhoover & Steve Ferrone (drums). Normally, I'm very wary of albums on which a proper kit has been dispensed with in favour of doing all the drum parts by way of programmed keybords but here, thankfully, on the tracks featuring synth instead of real drums it doesn't seem to matter at all. A couple of tracks are just reflective solo piano, but they fit in fine.

On the composition, arrangement, production, engineering and mixing fronts, Uncle Bob's principal collaborators for this project are Max Risenhoover, Michael Colina and Ray Bardani, though with what appears to be a host of other engineers and assistant engineers at a wide variety of studios, mostly in and around the New York area, though a brief visit appears to have been made to Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.

Despite the large number of different studios and crew involved in putting it all together, Restless is a (perhaps) surprisingly coherent album and, minus those two vocal tracks, remains one of my favourite and most often-played Bob James albums that's stood the test of time very well. Firmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars soothing, and that's not a bad thing! 7 Oct 2002
By James R. Prater - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Still it doesn't even begin to scratch the surface! The ten selections on this CD display Bob James' many musical facets. "Lotus Leaves" is a fluid number, featuring Bob in the company of Nathan East and Max Risenhoover. "Under Me" is a jaunty number featuring Luther Vandross and Lisa Fischer. The title song showcases sax phenom Andy Snitzer. Some serious funk here! The enigmatic "Kissing Cross" features guitarist Fareed Haque and longtime collaborator Ron Carter on bass. The big hit here is "Storm Warning" featuring Bob's daughter Hilary on lead vocals. Next follows the lusty "Animal Dreams". "We go "Back To Bali" next with Bob and Haque once again. Michael Brecker lends a hand on the bouncy "Into The Light", one of my personal favorites. The mood quiets down a bit on "Serenissima", a piece which resembles a melody by Tchaikovsky in its beginning. Closing is the bright "Awaken Us To The Blue". RESTLESS is the perfect alternative to the hum-drum of smooth jazz.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Bob 3 Mar 2000
By Wallace F. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD by Bob is great it reminds me of his earlier stuff. And with Nathan East on Bass Guitar how can one go wrong. Michael Brecker stands out on this CD as well as Ron Carter. I can asure you that you will want this for your Bob James collection. I can now add this to everything he has done. Can't wait for the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bob James comes through again 20 Feb 2005
By David Susnjara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jazz fusion keyboard player Bob James took time out from his collaboration with jazz supergroup Fourplay members Lee Ritenour, Nathan East and Harvey Mason to release his first solo album in five years. Many ears only know James as the author of "Angela," more commonly known as the theme song from the classic TV sitcom "Taxi." While that composition is a classic in its own right, there are plenty more sides to this man's talents. RESTLESS does tend to offer up some radio-friendly, more commercial moments for the likes of jazz fusion "the wave" radio stations, but this album is still a well done, very pleasurable listening experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the most part, moving and intimate 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Throw out the two vocal tracks, Under Me and Storm Warning and possibly the languid Awaken Us to the Blue and the canned feel of Restless and what you have left are six of the most soothing jazz tracks anywhere. These songs will grow on you and evoke feelings of warmth and comfort. I swear by it as evidenced by the fact that since '94 I replace at least a copy a year as peoples ears turn to it and I offer them my copy.
