Synopsis

Bob James: Live - From the Queen Mary Jazz Festival
By almost any standard imaginable, jazz heavyweight Bob James qualifies as a renaissance man. One discovered by Quincy Jones during the 1962 Notre Dame Jazz Festival, James began by pushing the limits of electronic jazz as far as it could possibly go. He then switched gears and opted for a more traditional route, as the musical director for Sarah Vaughan for four years. Then, beginning in 1977, James shifted course once again, as the founder of Tappan Zee records - doing much to enable the careers of such artists as Mongo Santamaria, {$Richard Tee] and Joanne Brackeen, Also in the late '70s and early '80s, James entered the mainstream as a recording artist, with Grammy Award-winning releases such as "One on One" (1980) and "Double Vision" (1986). James toplines this concert release, supported by musicians including Kirk Whalum, Leonard 'Doc' Gibbs, David Brown, Gary King, Alexander Zonjic, Yogi Horton and others. Selections include: the "Taxi" theme, "Unicorn, Westchester Lady", "Treasure Island", "Zebra Man" and [&"Ruby Ruby."} ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
