A Grammy award winning jazz pianist and composer, Bob James was at college when Quincy Jones first recognised his smooth tone on the keys.

One of the most sampled artist of all time, his ‘Nautilus’ bass line alone was adopted by Run DMC, Ghostface Killah and in Slick Rick’s iconic ‘Children’s Story’ – it wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that, deliberately or not, James was integral to the growth of hip-hop’s Golden Age.

The quality of his precise yet languid jazz, heard most potently on his classic LP One (1974), explains why countless artists have sought to use his sound. With a stratospheric career that is into its seventh decade, we are honoured to welcome a true icon of international jazz to our stage.
