Chronique Dusty Groove
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – as happened with some of his later records on the Tappan Zee imprint. Here, James is still a master of space and sound – using the Fender Rhodes with bell-like tones to craft some key grooves that are still having an amazing impact today, more than 30 years after the album was initially recorded! There's a darkness here that we totally love – and tracks include the legendary "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", which has been sampled by Run DMC and loads of others – plus"The Golden Apple", "I Feel A Song", "You're As Right As Rain", "Farandole", and "Dream Journey"
L'addition : On entre ici dans le monde de l'excellence. Un elixir de technique, de raffinement et de notes pures comme du cristal. L'album "Two" de Bob James date de 1975. A vrai dire, chaque album est un récital, mais ses premiers volumes ont une saveur particulière. Homme de l'ombre, orfèvre des studios, Bob touche à tout: Jazz, Classique, Soul, etc. Voilà de quoi tester votre ampli à 3 zéros après le premier chiffre (les aigus sont dantesques !) Un artiste à éplucher. Un disque à croquer !
