This collection takes me back to the good old days of Bob James in the late 70s and the 2nd cd introduces newer material. I'm happy to be listening to both. Gave one to my brother as well and he says the same thing!

There's a period in the Seventies when the big jazz names started recording the kind of music many fans sneered at.

But those with open ears found time for the easier sounds, expertly played by artists like Donald Byrd, George Benson, Grover Washington Jnr and Earl Klugh. Never considered 'hip', but played in lots of scenarios everywhere around the world during a certain period in musical history.

This is where you find Bob James. Smooth, melodic, cool. You'll know a lot of the tunes here; you might be surprised when you think hard about where you may have first heard them.

And let us not forget that 'Taxi' is one of the best half dozen TV themes every recorded.

For me it's just a great trip down memory lane after a long while of not listening to this kind of music.
This double cd is packed with great funky jazz tunes that have the 1980's written all over them, great to play loud in your car and bump your head to. Or for a nice smooth evening at home with your girlfriend/boyfriend.
Some songs will sound very familiar to a lot of people, that's because the were pillaged by the rap scene who sampled them to exhaustion.
But the originals are by no means exhausting.
Four stars.

Has all his great music on a two disc set. He was one of the original smooth jazz artists. Best known for the title music to the sitcom "Taxi."

This is a great compilation of his earlier music. This was when he was a founder of the jazz fusion trend.
