Bob JamesFoxie ... LP
Tappan Zee, 1983. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $0.99
A schmaltzy cover, but still some pretty nice work from Bob James – playing here in a smaller combo mode that hangs onto the format of his earlier classics on CTI! The keyboards definitely have some sounds that mark the early 80s date of the record – but they're still warmer and more soulful than most of James' contemporaries, especially on the mellower tracks on the set. Other players include Marcus Miller and Will Lee on bass, Steve Gadd and Peter Erskine on drums, David Sanborn on sax, and Steve Khan on guitar – and titles include "Zebra Man", "Marco Polo", "Miranda", "Ludwig", "Fireball", and "Calaban". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob JamesHeads ... LP
Tappan Zee, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... 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 out – as well as that unusual James approach to rhythm, which often makes tunes come across with lots of angular moments and darker corners, no matter how smooth the overall production might sound. Other players here include Richard Tee, Ralph MacDonald, Randy Brecker, Alphonso Johnson, and Steve Gadd – and titles include the seminal break track "Night Crawler", plus "Heads", "We're All Alone", "I'm In You", and "One Loving Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob JamesSwan ... CD
Koch/Tappan Zee, 1983. Used ... $4.99
Mellow grooving with Bob James – not as darkly-tinged as some of his 70s fusion classics, but that's probably because he was making so much money by this point! The record's still pretty decent overall – a lot better than some of the fusion imitators that showed up in Bob's wake – and even though the production's more 80s oriented than we might like, it's still not as bad as you might think. Titles include "The Swan", "Water Music", "Ensenada Madness", and "Quietly Crazy For You". CD

✨✧ Bob JamesThree ... LP
CTI, 1976. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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 really sets him apart from the pack! The set includes the sample classics "Storm King" and "Westchester Lady" – both of which are examples of James at his best – plus the cuts "Jamaica Farewell", "One Mint Julep", and "Women Of Ireland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing on Columbia/Tappan Zee.)

Jazz SteppersNext Step ... CD
Passion (UK), 2000. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
One of our favorites – and an excellent second album by this smooth jazzy combo! The Jazz Steppers remind us of some of our favorite slick jazz funk from the 70s – like Bob James on Tappan Zee, or some of the sweeter sounds on the Kudu label – smooth on top, but filled with a good sense of rhythm and funky solos underneath. The group is the latest link in a strong tradition of modern jazz funk from London, built upon the tight keyboards of Pat Leacock – who plays some sublime Fender Rhodes on the set – with a groove that will leave you breathless, as the tracks are at once funky, smooth, and spacey! Titles include "Feeling U", "Octaves Apart", "Bella Lisa", "Reflections", "LA Drive", and "Full Circle". CD
