Bob James - Smooth Jazz Classics
Bob James is an American 'smooth' jazz pianist. He's been playing since the 60's and has a diverse style, he is not a hard core jazz man, hence the 'smooth' title, because he does not fit easily into main stream 'slots' his work has been somewhat overlooked. He has been associated and played for many well know artiste such as Sinatra, Quincey Jones, George Benson, Aretha Franklin and Paul Simon (just to illustrate he's not a one dimensional player). I personally like the 70's/80's tracks so this "The essential Collection" CD covers most of this. One of the most widely know tracks is 'Angela' which is the theme tune for the 70's sitcom, Taxi. That theme gives you an idea of what Bob James music is about. Dave Winter
