ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not since Quincy Jones' Back on the Block have we seen such a line up of soul and jazz all stars - every song a musical event. The first single Speak Love boasts R&B veterans Glenn Jones, Tony Terry & Tim Owens with jazz chart toppers U-Nam & Lin Rountree. Love is my Bible unites 3 of Chaka Khan's most beloved background singers, Sandra St Victor, Audrey Wheeler-Downing & Karen Bernod, on a Motown-influenced hit featuring smooth jazz favorites, Groove LTD.

Like Jones, Day reaches beyond the scope of R&B in his writing, producing, and selection of performers. Titled SONG, SOUL & SPIRIT, the album opens with Battlegrounds, a social anthem that has already had an impact at radio with it's gospel choir finale, and a rare guest appearance by film & music star Cheryl Pepsii Riley. Another highlight is the pairing of Tony-nominated Elisabeth Withers (Suge Avery from the musical Color Purple) w/ seasoned jazz saxophonist Walter Beasley. Day places them on the inspirational ballad, Stand on my Shoulders, which he wrote with Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Preston Glass.

Day had the opportunity to write with another of his Grammy-winning songwriting heros, Gordon Chambers, on the motivational ballad Forgiveness, pairing Chambers with another unexpected choice, Grammy-winning Paula Cole, best known for her #1 hit and Dawson's Creek anthem, I Don't Want to Wait, as well as her jazz duets album with Chris Botti.

Throughout the album, Day surrounds his esteemed leading artists with a cast of musicians who have backed musical legends & game changers like Barbara Streisand, Barry Manilow, Erica Badu and Kindred & the Family Soul.

Of Day's writing, 5X Consecutive Grammy winner Lalah Hathaway says: "James is one of the most beautiful, visual songwriters I know, his lyrics fit me like a glove."
