Daring or predictable?I can't say.But if you "have it" why not choose the best especially when you only have the piano and voice.Excecution and not discovering second tier material that may be worthy is not the goal.Their is no attampt to prove taste in choosing lesser material.That would be a bit preachy or "teachy" and here it's just proving chops that is goal.
You like if you enjoy Johnny Hartman and Leon Thomas (this is less "70's Hip" than Thomas but in same vein more like where Andy Bey has ended up).I first heard James on and excellent Timo Lassy CD "Round Two" (I recommend both of Lassy's solo CD's and his work with U-Street All Stars and the "Five Corners Quintet" which features Mark Murphy).If you like this and especially the earlier James CD than you'd dig Dwight Tribble who has a sound VERY similar to his hero Leon Thomas but you will find tone/sound of both Dwight Tribble sensibility and sound to both be in the same great vein.But Lassy and Tribble harken to late 60's Blue Note or early 70's jazz/funk fusion whereas this excellent CD hearkens back to pure jazz singing of the 50's.Really nice if not a a perfect CD.
