Bob James - Photo By Michael VerityContrary to what you might think, Bob James isn't just a one-trick, smooth-jazz pony. He started out his recording career in 1963 with an inventive trio album of bop-styled classics that he created under the auspices of Quincy Jones. Forty years later, he returned to the format with a wonderful trio piece called Take It From The Top. In between, of course, he created much that could be called "smooth jazz," and much of it is quite good. Want to know what's best from his catalog that comes close to 30 albums over 40 years? Check out my Bob James Buyer's Guide. Happy jazzing. _/\_ MV
