We ended the first part of our conversation (available here) with Bob James by discussing artists who have sampled his work over the years. Part two begins by examining the influence hip hop has had on his own music. We then continue a tour through the history of the compositions on his forthcoming trio album, Feel Like Making LIVE! (evosound/Evolution Music, 2022), from playing “Misty” with Sarah Vaughan to James’ own “Angela,” also known as the theme song to the tv show Taxi. We also discuss what he likes most about his current trio, cover his work recontextualizing classical pieces, and examine his recordings with Paul Simon, Hubert Laws, and Hank Crawford.
