BONEY JAMES will be performing at Jazz Fest West in San Dimas, CA on Saturday, July 16th.
Boney James, who has four Gold albums, three Grammy® nominations, a Soul Train Award and an NAACP Award nomination to his credit, just released his most personal album to date, Contact, on March 29, 2011. His first album for Verve Records, Contact has been #1 on the Contemporary Jazz Albums Chart for more than 9 weeks and boasts high-profile vocal guest appearances from Grammy®- and Tony®-Award winner Heather Headley; platinum-selling singer and former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett; and R&B superstars Mario, and Donnell Jones. His first single “Contact” is already No. 1 most added on the BDS Smooth Jazz, Mediabase Smooth AC, and Smoothjazz.com charts. The first Urban AC single “When I Had The Chance,” featuring LeToya Luckett, is impacting radio now.
The musician’s legion of fans have scooped up over 3 million copies of his twelve albums (with eight of them going to No. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart). And though notable music critics consider him one of the most influential jazz artists of his generation and Billboard Magazine named him “The No. 3 Top Contemporary Jazz Artist of the Decade.”
