Boney with Marsha Ambrosius at the Soul Train Awards:
SAXOPHONIST BONEY JAMES NOMINATED FOR
Multi-platinum saxophonist Boney James’ album Contact has been nominated for a Soul Train Music award in the Contemporary Jazz category. In addition to the nomination, Boney will also be participating with other high profile artists in a Gladys Knight and Earth Wind & Fire Tribute. This year’s show will tape in Atlanta on November 17, but will air in simulcast on both Centric and BET on November 27 at 9pm/8c.
Boney James, who has four Gold albums, three Grammy® nominations, a Soul Train Award and an NAACP Award nomination to his credit, also received his ninth #1 Contemporary Jazz album with Contact released on March 29, 2011 on Verve Records. Currently, Boney is enjoying a #1 single with the song “Spin,” his twentieth single to hit No.1 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Chart.
Contact boasts high-profile vocal guest appearances from Grammy® and Tony® Award winner Heather Headley; platinum-selling singer and former member of Destiny’s Child, LeToya Luckett; and R&B superstars Mario and Donnell Jones.
The musician’s legion of fans have scooped up over 3 million copies of his twelve albums. 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,” James prefers to not be labeled, saying, “I am just a saxophone player whose music has several different influences. Jazz is only one of them.”
Earlier this year, Boney performed the opening number on the recent NAACP Awards live broadcast on FOX along with Wayne Brady and Holly Robinson-Peete. James then performed on the George Lopez show. He also performed his single “When I Had The Chance” on the Mo’nique show with LeToyaLuckett. He is currently criss-crossing the country for local TV and radio performances and tour dates.
