Bob James, a Jazz keyboardist and a producer, is recognized as one of the progenitors of smooth Jazz. He had more than 30 solo albums throughout a rich career of nearly half a century. He has worked with artists like Hank Crawford, and Grover Washington Jr. One On One, the first in three collaborations with Earl Klugh, was awarded a Grammy in 1980 and has sold over a million copies. Today Mr. James still appears solo and with his group: Fourplay. It was in 1990 while recording his Grand Piano Canyon album that Bob reunited with his old friend, drummer Harvey Mason, Jr. and worked for the first time with Lee Ritenour on guitar and Nathan East on bass. The sessions for this project were the genesis of the group, Fourplay. Their first album was recorded and released in 1991.
