Project Notes

The R James project features a unique collaboration of some of the finest players in the industry coming together on a contemporary jazz album headed by recording artist, jazz guitarist and composer, R James (James Heidinger), under indie label Syrah Records.

The album was produced by R James and later was mixed and co-produced by two time grammy award winning producer, Paul Brown. The album features a collaboration between R James, Paul Brown and Lew Laing on a smooth jazz piece called "Cali Breeze".  Paul also produced an instrumental release of "Stay with Me" featuring R James soulful guitar work.

With the help of producer James Gardiner of Pajama Studios in Oakland's Jack London Square, the project brought together Robert Damper on keys (musical director and keyboardist for Kenny G.), Brian Collier on drums (Con Funk Shun), and solo artists Troy Lampkins and Victor Little on bass.  Additionally, Syrah Records worked with artists Marc van Wageningen on bass (touring with Sheila E.) on the original "InnerLight"  and David K. Mathews on keys (touring with Santana) on the original "MontgomeryLand".

The official CD release was March 24, 2015.  The music is streamed free on online radio, select jazz radio stations and on television syndication Music Choice. 

You can also find the R James' streaming free music on Pandora on R James Radio.
