New Bob James/David Sanborn, Special EFX Albums Out Today

May 21 2013

Bob James and David Sanborn released their new album Quartette Humaine via OKeh Records today (May 21).  The set marks the first project the duo has recorded together since their landmark album Double Vision was released in 1986.  On Quartette Humaine, Sanborn and James pay tribute to the late pianist and composer Dave Brubeck, especially his work featuring saxophonist Paul Desmond.  The all-acoustic set features Steve Gadd on drums and James Genus on bass and presents four new compositions by James, three new songs by Sanborn and two James-arranged covers including "My Old Flame" and "Geste Humain."  The duo kick off their 2013 tour on June 6 at Town Hall in New York City.  Meanwhile, Chieli Minucci is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Special EFX with the release of his new album Genesis via Shanachie Records. Chieli will perform with the Bernie Williams All Star Band on June 1 in Katonah, NY.
