Boney James
The Beat

Boney James - The Beat

Three-time Grammy nominee, saxophonist Boney James returns with the dynamic, genre-busting album, The Beat. One of the most successful instrumental artists of our time, James' new project fuses his R&B/Jazz roots with Latin rhythm and percussion.

Special guests on the project include trumpet great Rick Braun, eclectic R&B soul singer Raheem DeVaughn and spoken word phenom The Floacist. The album also includes James' fresh take on Stevie Wonder's R&B/Latin classic 'Don't You Worry Bout A Thing,' along with originals that run the gamut from subtle and sophisticated to high energy.
