I must admit to being a little disappointed having enjoyed 'One on One' and the brilliant 'Two of a 'Kind'. To award just 2 stars is in my opinion not valid. There is craftsmanship here but I suspect this has been overtaken by the production team and the old comfortable ways of the control room have fallen fowl of the emerging digital age. Shame really. But this LP is no risk and should be given proper listening time; then reviewed in context.

Yes I agree it is not totally cool but it certainly isn't tepid! It is fine and ok. Can be mixed with other tracks on your system and will blend well.

Bob & earl really play well together on this outing. In my humble opinion it's some of Earl's best playing reminiscent of lee ritenour in the earlier fourplay albums. Bob's playing is amongst his best too. The album starts out slowly then really picks up. To take the album as a whole I would not describe this as supermarket music as it does get into a number of great funky jazz groves. For example the tracks New York samba, handara,the sponge( which gets into a crusaders grove),San Diego stomp, all good example,s if you turn the volume up to hear what beats most of today's 'smooth jazz brigade'. I personally don,t care for much of today 'painting by numbers' smooth jazz. This album is much more inventive than that. I have 1000,s of jazz rock/ fusion & acoustic cds in my collection.This is well worth a listen. If in doubt check it out on Spotify or utube. By the way isn't 'cool' what most pre- teenagers say, what do they know!!!

I bought this album a good few years ago because it had Earl Klugh playing. I'd not heard any Bob James' work before, but it wasn't very long before I realised that what made this album so INCREDIBLY COOL was not Earl Klugh's guitar, but Bob James' magnificent keyboard playing!!!
Believe me - if you haven't got this album already - YOU NEED IT!! Unfortunately, the very best track (Handara) is not available for preview, but if it were, you'd be reaching for your credit card right now.
Buy it - you will NOT regret it!

Well, I bought this on the strength of the other review here and the fact that i have several Bob James Cd's already, so i thought it would be a good bet.
Wrong.
There is no faulting the musicianship but its so boring!
There is no groove on anything to speak of, but just mostly 'lift music' of the type that is classed under smooth jazz a lot of the time.
this would be quite at home playing softly over the PA system in the freezer aisle of your local supermarket, but cool?
No, Cool is bands like Light Of The World, and The Crusaders, and even Bob james on his more memorable work, but not this i am afraid.
Needless to say i am selling my copy..
