Overview

Many people consider saxophonist Boney James to be the heir apparent to Kenny G's throne. The young sideman-turned-solo-star has developed a sound that blends a hefty helping of R & B with pop and jazz elements, and he's thrown in a dash of sexy romanticism to keep things hot. James' 1995 album SEDUCTION certainly should have a place in any smooth jazz fan's collection, but it's the follow-up, 1997's sparkling SWEET THING, that brought him the most acclaim as an accomplished craftsman of exciting, highly textured tunes. A versatile player who can switch styles with ease, James lets his funk roots show on "Nothin' But Love," and soars through the title track, a lovely version of the Rufus classic. James and singer Al Jarreau team up to create the gorgeous "I Still Dream." By now, the field is crowded with smooth jazz saxophonists; Boney James is not only a standout; he's one of the leaders in the field.
