Product Description

2009 release from the Jazz/Pop crossover saxophonist, his follow-up to the Grammy nominated Shine. Send One Your Love is a perfect gift for the one you love and features new material as well as covers of songs by Stevie Wonder, Barry White, James Taylor and others. Over the past decade, Boney James has proven to be one of the best selling and most honored artists in all of popular music including four consecutive #1 Gold albums in America and more than twelve #1 contemporary Jazz singles! 10 tracks.

About the Artist

One of the most respected and best-selling instrumental artists of our time, Boney James furthers his longstanding reputation as a major force in both the worlds of Contemporary Jazz and R&B with his first concept album Send One Your Love.

In the past, the saxophonist/producer/songwriter has recorded his albums by following a creative process that James calls "an organic flow. Usually I'll cut the whole record and figure out afterwards what the vibe was." That model has served James well. His unique gift of making the saxophone sing like a human voice has resulted in millions of albums sold over the past 16 years (including four that have been RIAA certified gold). But for his new Concord CD, Send One Your Love, a sublime collection of ten seductive love songs, James decided to take a different path.

"This is a departure for me, to make a concept album," says James, who calls Send One Your Love (with a street date set to coincide with Valentine's Day) the "ultimate musical Valentine." "I was looking to do something different on this record. Some people have very kindly said that my sound is seductive in the same way that Barry White and Marvin Gaye's were. The great thing about some of their records was they could really set a romantic mood, so I decided to try to create my own make-out record, inspired by the soul music of the `70s. "

Send One Your Love features stunning covers of songs by Stevie Wonder (the title track), the Stylistics ("Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)," Barry White ("I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby"), John Klemmer ("Touch") and James Taylor ("Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" introducing Atlanta singer, Quinn). The CD also showcases four new James compositions, highlighted by the evocative tune "City of Light," co-written by keyboardist Tim Carmon, (known for his work with Eric Clapton).

James plays tenor, alto and soprano saxophones on Send One Your Love. "Choosing the saxophone for each song is kind of like casting for a movie." he says, "Some songs just feel right on one horn." He also opts for a full string section on four cuts in lieu of synthesized orchestration. "I love the sound of live strings," James says, "it definitely plays up the romance!"

"I spent a lot of time figuring out what the order of the songs was going to be," James says. "I wanted this to be an album, not just a collection of songs. I wanted to tell a romantic story from the beginning to the end."

No doubt his legions of fans will agree he's succeeded and James will be out on the road supporting the c.d. throughout 2009. Of his live show The Philadelphia Tribune said "To put it mildly, Boney James... was THE BOMB. An unbelievable technician who knows how to work a crowd... A tough act to follow."

According to Boney, "The communal experience of playing live - that's why I became a musician in the first place. It's exciting and liberating. It never gets old for me."

Boney's latest album, "Send one your love" is the consummate title for a record filled with benevolent ballads of jazz that will perk up one's heart and put them in the mood for love.
Ten tracks - nine of them are instrumental - from the accomplished Smooth Jazz sax man include some new tunes plus covers from Stevie Wonder, Barry White, John Klemmer, James Taylor and the Stylistics.
James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" is the only one track with vocals, provided by Quinn. The song then blends in Boney's indisputable saxophone work along with this young talented vocalist from Atlanta.
BUT, there are other songs on it. And it's just the new, original material is where the talent of Boney James shines throughout: "City Of Light", dedicated to Paris, featuring Steffon Harris on vibraphone and Dean Parks on guitar, sparkles with a Parisian charm.
"Butter" has James echoing the genius of Grover Washington, jr. while "Wanna Show U Sumthin" shows a laid-back, sparce sound and excellent vocal support by Sue Ann Carwell.
The icing on the cake and my favourites are his grooving take of The Stylistics' "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)" and the seductive "Hold On Tight".
Okay, admittedly it's nothing groundbreaking here, but who says that every album by an artist has to be completely revolutionary?
To sum up, "Send one your love" is the perfect album to turn on when you want to get just the right affectionate response.
The album debuts at # 1 of the Billboard Top Contemporay Jazz Albums. Issue date 2009-02-21

I have listened to Boney James' latest a couple of times and yes, it is so smooth. The cover tunes of classics such as Stop Look Listen (originally by the Stylistics) or I'll Be Good to You (by the Brothers Johnson) were well done. I read that Boney wanted the CD to be about love and he sure achieved his objective. The original new tunes, in particular Butter, is the definition of what smooth jazz has meant to me in terms of listening since I started listening to it back in the late 70's-early 80s. Simply smooth. The man (who I will see in Vegas in April) definitely has his finger on the pulse of smooth/R&B-flavored jazz. Job well done Mr. Oppenheimer.

Send One Your Love-is one of Boney James best cd's. Each track just flows, put this in anytime and just enjoy. There is the one track with vocals and it's ok. I just love to hear the music and Boney James brings it on this cd. If you are a fan of smooth jazz I would recommend buying this one for your collection. This is smooth jazz at it's finest.

I am a Boney James huge fan and have it all. I must admit this in particular is now my favorite. I consider this to be his most romantic to date. Often I can find selections that I consider average but I believe he intended this for those romantic evenings, mornings, afternoons and whatever. This should be on repeat. Enjoy.

This is a great CD. I think it's the best since Boney's "Seduction" CD in 1995. Lots of good smooth horn sprinkled with a little bit of volcals. I recommend this CD if you're a Boney fan.

I have to agree with what Southgate wrote in his review, in fact, it was the reason I ordered the album. "9 of the 10 songs are instrumental" and that's what I was hoping Boney would go back to doing. Some of his more recent albums had too many vocals on them. I think he was experimenting with a newer sound, perhaps. But this album is why I have so many of his albums. It is romantic and easy to listen to.

I especially like the opener: "Wanna Show U Sumthin'" and the closing song, "I'll Be Good To You." I wasn't impressed with the one vocal by Quinn. I prefer a softer voice doing that song. That's the ONLY song on the CD I didn't really care for. But 9 out of 10 ain't bad.

I also want to mention that when Boney had his Sunday show, "Personal Notes" played on LOVE 94 in Miami back in the late nineties, he'd say if you had a question, to email him. I usually did, wanting to know the title of an album or whatever. And he always answered my emails. It made me feel he was down to earth.

So I hope he continues to make music such as he did on this CD. It's excellent.
