Earl Klugh/Bob James: Cool

Album Reviews:

Q (11/92, p.112) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "..top-notch arrangements...a nice, smooth-groove package.."

Album Notes

Personnel: Bob James (keyboards); Earl Klugh (guitar, programming); Paul Pesco (guitar); Ron Carter, Gary King (bass); Harvey Mason (drums); Leonard "Doc" Gibbs (percussion); Max Risenhoover, Michael Colina (programming).

Recorded at Soundtrack Recording Studios, New York, New York.

Bob James' outing with guitarist Earl Klugh takes the listener on an extremely relaxing journey on this 1992 release. James' soft-edged keyboards blend effortlessly with Klugh's acoustic guitar, while Harvey Mason maintains steady, soft percussion in the background, and bassist Gary King jams gently along.

A true collaborative effort, all but two of the 12 tracks were composed by either James or Klugh, and they accompany one another throughout the recording. There are some top-notch arrangements, including Klugh's "The Sponge," "New York Samba," and James' "The Night That Love Came Back," which many listeners will find the perfect romantic backdrop.
