Iridium Jazz Club Welcomes Eddie Daniels & Bob James
The Iridium Jazz Club is very pleased to present a very special engagement by two super stars of jazz Eddie Daniels and Bob James. The event will take place Nov. 1st, 2009, with sets at 8:30 pm & 10:30 pm.
Eddie Daniels is that rarest of rare musicians who is not only equally at home in both jazz and classical music, but excels at both with breathtaking virtuosity. Eddie has had a long and successful career beginning with the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra in the 1960’s. His clarinet and tenor can be heard on many recordings including those with Freddie Hubbard (1969), Richard Davis, Don Patterson, and duets with Bucky Pizzarelli (1973).
His recordings for GRP in the 1980’s brought Eddie wider fame and recognition. His most recent recordings for the IPO label as a leader and in duo with Roger Kellaway have been critically acclaimed.
Bob James is best know for his commercially successful recordings for the CTI, Tappan Zee, Columbia, and Warner Bros. label’s. His collaborations with Earl Klugh and David Sanborn, the Taxi TV theme, and the fusion-flavored Fourplay group are all well know to his many fans worldwide.
Little know, however is his earlier work, especially his Mercury recording “Bold Conceptions” where the 22 year old Bob James demonstrates his prodigious piano talents in a powerful trio setting working out on jazz classics like “A Moment’s Notice”, “Nardis” and “Birk’s Works” and his avant-garde recording for the the ESP label “Explorations” with Barre Phillips and Robert Pozar.
