On September 1, 2017, smooth jazz superstar Boney James will release his 16th CD, ‘Honestly’, a collection that finds him rediscovering that urban edginess which was so much a feature of his earlier work. Critical acclaim notwithstanding the albums that immediately followed his sensational 2001 project ‘Ride’ only flirted with what might be described as James at his soulful best yet with ‘Honestly’ he has rolled back the years in a way that will delight his fan base around the world. Take for example the first two tracks to be offered to radio. R & B stations are being courted with the splendid title cut that features picture perfect vocals from Avery Sunshine while smooth jazz outlets are being treated to the stunning ‘Tick Tock’ that seems destined to be one of the best tunes of the entire year.
Check back here soon for a complete review of ‘Honesty’.
