Album Review

The masterful fusion of street funk, sensual R&B, and contemporary jazz that Boney James accomplishes on Ride continues to make him a favorite with listeners around the world. The multi-talented saxophonist, keyboardist, producer, and composer wrote or co-wrote nine of the songs for this ten-song program and features such stellar guest talent as Marcus Miller, R&B singer Jaheim on the title track, Dave Hollister's gospel-flavored street style heard on "Something Inside," and Trina Broussard's crystal-clear vocals on the opening track, "Heaven." Boney James recorded two of the songs live in the studio, seasons "This Is the Life" with a tropical flavoring complete with steel pans, and downright floors listeners on the groove-oriented "See What I'm Sayin'," with Marcus Miller's funky basslines doing the walking while Boney James' saxophone does the talking. Ride is more intense and funkier than James' duet collaboration with trumpeter Rick Braun on Shake It Up, but doesn't stray far from his ability to do just that. It's definitely a smooth ride and one listeners will enjoy.

Funny Name Sexy Music

This was the first album i bought from Boney James. It was recomended to me and although i this isn't the type of music i usually listen to i fell in love from the moment i heard it. Some of my favorite tracks are Heaven, All About You and Something Inside. They are laced with sultry sounds that make you feel ready for relaxing with the one you love.

This is one of his best albums... wonderful to play loud and drive down the road... a lot of the songs have a catchy melody and just flow. He is a wonderful saxophonist, and is great in concert. Hope to hear more good tunes in the future from him
