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'additionOn 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 !
