Bob James - Obsession mp3 flac

Obsession is a digitally recorded jazz fusion album by Bob James from 1986. The album was Bob James' first solo album for Warner Bros. Records after roughly ten years at CBS (now Sony Music Entertainment). Alhough the album is not among his most well remembered, the title track is one of the main highlights for its engaging structure catch in which the listener is tricked by the untimely bassline.

On this album he more fully integrates electronics into everything part of his music. It wasn't too often, especially in the 80's did you find music that represent both stylized sound and substantive composition at the same time. Somehow that's exactly what happened with Bob James on this album. As usual, Bob James is joined by an all-star cast on this 1986 release. Steve Khan, Marcus Miller, Randy and Michael Brecker, saxophonists Andy Snitzer and Kirk Whalum, Jon Faddis, and vocalist Lisa Fischer all lend their talents to this R&B flavored recording. The seven tracks blend smoothly together, delivering something approaching the more packaged and produced '90s Bob James sound.

Obsession is Bob James' first solo album for Warner Brothers after roughly ten years at CBS. James' first successful Warner Brothers endeavor had him teaming up with David Sanborn for the ubiquitous and well-executed Double Vision. By 12, James, like many other keyboardists, had begun to experiment with every gadget that came down the pike with mixed results. Unlike Double Vision, Obsession seems to be more unassuming. While many might be put off by the pure-'80s production values of "3AM" and "Rousseau," luckily they have compelling arrangements to ward off boredom. The album's best song, "Rain," is a methodical and pretty track that is an essential for devotees of the often-maligned late-'80s jazz-pop era.
