Multiple-Grammy Award-winner Bob James has established himself as one of America’s most accomplished composers, arrangers and instrumentalists.
He recently achieved his long-time ambition to return to the trio format he last utilized on 2004’s Take It From The Top, and embraced as an up-and-coming artist. His new album Expresso, released in August of this year, is James’s first studio recording as a leader since 2006. Though busy since then with an array of projects, ranging from albums and appearances with the all-star contemporary jazz ensemble Fourplay to collaborations with David Sanborn, Keiko Matsui and other renowned artists, James hasn’t reclaimed his place in the spotlight as a solo performer until now.
All Music wrote, “His music seamlessly melds genres from bop to pop, from classical to R&B via relatively simple, accessible, and elegant melodies with rich harmonies and multiple sonic textures, often anchored by lithe, funky grooves.”
