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
