Long time collaborators Bob James and Nathan East have created a true jazz masterpiece with their latest effort “The New Cool”. Yamaha Entertainment Group label president Chris Gero equipped a state-of-the-art Nashville studio with Yamaha gear and gave the two free reign to create. The result is an unexpected classic jazz album showcasing the amazing talents of these two Grammy recognized artists.
Throughout the The New Cool, East’s silky meandering bass lines interplay perfectly with James’ pastoral piano wanderings. From sparsely arranged duets to complex orchestrations, The New Cool truly explores the outer limits of strait-ahead jazz.
