|FourPlay performing at Jazz Alley. The band comprises Bob James (keys), Nathan East (bass) Chuck Loeb (guitar) and Harvey Mason (drums) -truly a supergroup|
I was fortunate to catch these guys at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley in Seattle just recently. Absolutely amazing musicians, all: get to see them if you have the opportunity. My thanks to the Management of Jazz Alley for permission to take photographs. Scroll down for a vid (not mine) of the band in concert.
|Nathan East and Chuck Loeb having a 'Status Quo' moment. Make no mistake, these guys can really do some straight ahead rock when it takes their fancy|
|Not much in the way of conventional Four/Four rhythms for FourPlay: Harvey Mason's drumming was so intricate that I gave up trying to count the time signatures!|
|Bob James: consumate master of the keys and an original founder of the smooth jazz genre|
