A gifted pianist, writer and arranger with a thirst for adventure and over three dozen solo albums to his name, Bob James is a jazz giant who has achieved critical and commercial success with a wide variety of musical approaches. Spanning the period 1974 to 2007, this collection brings together his finest recordings - for CTI, his own label Tappan Zee, Warner Bros and, most recently, Koch Records - as a solo artist and in collaboration with talented friends. Laid back, funky, spirited and soothing, here is the very best of Bob James.
