One of the most important jazz releases of the year!
Grammy Award winning, legendary jazz artist, Bob James returns with his first recording project as leader in 12 years! In true Trio format, accompanied by drummer Billy Kilson, and bassist Michael Palazzolo, the highly anticipated Espresso reflects the same inventiveness and musical fluency that persuaded Quincy Jones to become James' mentor and champion back in 1963. Long awaited jazz tunes, such as "Topside" will definitely satisfy excited fans, while the re-imagination of 1974's "Nautilus" which was profoundly influential in the hip hop world has resulted in the funky upbeat track "Submarine."
