After four gold albums, four Grammy nominations and sales totaling more than 3 million records, chart-topping saxophonist Boney James embodies the phrase “horn of plenty.”

“I’m always thinking about making music,” he says. “It’s still my consuming passion.”

That passion reverberates throughout James’ latest project, The Beat. ... Read more in Amazon's Boney James Store

I discovered Boney James whilst over in the USA several yrs ago and am a confirmed fan! This man just keeps getting better - Sweet Thing is my all-time favourite track. Whether your'e in the mood for lurve... or driving down a busy motorway... turn up the vibes and chill, relax and your cares just float away on hearing that sax. He manages to vary the mood with each track - each one is incredible. Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "PURE GOLD" 4 April 2000
By Renee Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is "Pure Gold." Over 500,000 copies of this CD have been sold since its release date. It hit the airwaves at #1, remained at #1 for a very long time, and stayed on the smooth jazz (Gavin, R&R, & Billboard) charts in the top 10 for over 2 years-- and is still going strong. This CD speaks for itself. Don't be fooled by the opinions of those who think they are contemporary jazz experts who want to always compare Boney James to Kenny G, or try to convince you that they know music better than the artists that are creating it. They need to get over it and "really" listen to his music so they can hear and feel the difference in what he brings to us opposed to those with which he is always being compared. Instruments will sound the same or similiar at times, it doesn't matter who is playing them but in this case you will clearly know who is who. What is most important though is that this CD has music that is full of fire, passion, and soul. The first song East Bay, sets the mood for the CD with that low tone Saxophone sound, bass drums, and bass guitar and you just can't get enough. You are immediately roped right in and by the time you get to (#6) After The Rain, you have been "Boneyized" and you will not want to turn it off. Hit repeat again? Yes please! Buy it and be your own Judge. A half million people out there have this CD in their smooth jazz collection. If you don't have it, you are missing out on something very, very special.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let Boney set the Mood! 29 Aug 2003
By AbeStreet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album begins to set the mood with it's cd cover and booklet with it's simple pictures of sliced fruit that are so real in appearance that you can taste their sweet juices. Followed up by a 10 truely great jazz songs that are just as sweet. These songs are able to convey energy and motion while somehow still able to sooth the listener.
Having seen Mr. James in concert and having heard him describe the origins and objectives behind some of this albums songs I think it would be fair to say that given the response of the other reviewers that he succeeded. While jazz can have many goals such as relaxing the listener or providing music to dance to this albums goal was to create an atmosphere for romance and romance alone. There are no drastic changes in tempo or arrangement that will break the mood.
So if you want to create that special mood or reflect on previous romantic moments this album will help you get going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Find 26 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While I have been a fusion jazz and Metheny fan for many years it was not until recently that I expanded my jazz horizons. I heard some Boney James on a Sunday AM jazz show and figured I'd give a listen. I bought Body Language first and then this CD. Both are excellent and bear repeated listenings extremely well. Along with Norman Brown, Boney is my 3 year old's favorite artist. That may sound hokey but he seems to have excellent taste (If I play Rage Against the Machine he puts his fingers in his ears and runs from the room screaming). His favorite on this CD is "After The Rain" which he must listen to every day to school which is an excellent choice. I highly recommend both CD's - they have been great finds.

3.0 out of 5 stars You may want to reconsider... 4 Jan 2000
By dj - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely NOT Boney James' best album, but one that deserves some recognition nonetheless. The album is very slow, and sounds like modern R&B throughout. He does a fine job with his suprano saxophone, but overdoes it on some tracks and begins to sound a lot like Kenny G. I must credit the bass lines on this album, it's good to hear a jazz bassist that actually plays a low B or C [five or six string bass] more often than once per song. I use Sweet Thing as background music when I have people over, but not for an intense jazz experience. I suggest picking up Boney James' "Seduction" if you want to hear his true talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet, soulful, sensuous,and seductive 7 Mar 1999
By titabita - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to this cd over and over again and the beautiful music just flows over me again and again. It's composed of that kind of music that puts you in whatever kind of mood you'd like to be in-whether that be sitting home relaxing with incense and a glass of wine with your feet propped up, or cuddling with your baby. Introduced to me by my soulmate, this entire album is the epitamy of what love feels like. I mean strong, real, pure and uncut love. The kind that's not sold in stores. Buy this cd, tape, whatever! Just make sure it's in your collection of love. You won't regret it.
