Early 80s Bob James back to back – two very big albums on a single CD! H has a cover that might be a bit gimmicky – with a giant image of a hot dog – but the album's actually one of the more sensitive outings from keyboardist Bob James at the time – a really refreshing ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A nice litle set from Bob James – thanks to a good degree of warmth in the keyboards, which still include Fender Rhodes alongside acoustic piano and some more advanced 80s keys! While other artists of his generation were really schmaltzing things up by this point in time, Bob still keeps ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Just Sold Out!
Heads or tails, it's a winner every time – as the record's one of the last clear moments of genius from keyboardist Bob James in the 70s! The sound here is stepping out a bit more from Bob's earlier sides on CTI, but there's still plenty of great keyboard work to make the album worth seeking ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Things are slightly smooth, but ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The package is a wonderful look at all that's great about Bob James – and brings together all the best ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A smooth set of Fender Rhodes instrumentals built around Bob James' famous theme to the TV show Taxi – also known as "Angela", and probably the way that most mainstream folks know Bob's work! And although that track was plenty famous, it's still a really great number that echoes ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Dark genius from keyboardist Bob James – one of his seminal 70s classics for CTI! The album follows strongly in the spirit of the records One and Two – using James' spacious approach to Fender Rhodes alongside some backings that are electric, yet have an earthily funky quality that ...

Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label ... (Latin) read moreCD
