Faith Evans, Esthero, George Benson And More Join Boney James On His Latest CD, "Shine"
Boney produced the disc and played tenor, soprano and alto saxes, keyboards and flute. He wrote or co-wrote nine of Shine’s 12 tracks.
Faith Evans lends her supple pipes to the rambunctious, rock-tinged R&B song "Gonna Get It," which Boney co-wrote with Rahsaan Patterson. "Faith is a huge star, and I was really flattered that she wanted to work with me," Boney relates. "And I was floored not only by how hard she worked on the track, but by how incredibly gracious she was."
With Shine’s sparkling new batch of material, Boney James is set to take audiences to entirely new places with his ecstatic, evocative playing and velvety grooves. James will kick off a new tour at L.A.’s Greek Theatre on Sept. 29, with dates scheduled through 2007. "The communal experience of playing live – that’s why I became a musician in the first place," he declares. "It’s exciting and liberating. It never gets old for me."
