Boney James - “Solid”… A Reflection on Relationships and a Respite from a Stress-Filled World

Boney James - "Solid"... A Reflection on Relationships and a Respite from a Stress-Filled World

Saxophonist Boney James, whose style falls on the R&B and pop side of jazz, is a Soul Train award-winner and four-time Grammy nominee who has sold over three million albums. Born in Lowell, Massachusetts; he grew up in New Rochelle, New York before moving to Los Angeles with his family at the age of 15.

In 1985, James went on the road as a keyboardist with Morris Day, and eventually convinced Day that he should be playing saxophone instead. He spent four years playing with Day and also became an in-demand guest musician on tenor, alto, soprano, and flute, playing with Randy Crawford, Sheena Easton, the Isley Brothers, and Bobby Caldwell.

James made his debut as a solo artist with “Trust” in 1992 on Spindletop Records, which earned him a contract with Warner Bros. two years later.

His latest album “Solid” will be available on June 12, 2020 on Concord Records.
