Hands Down is the tenth studio album by Bob James, released in 1982. This was a turning point in James career, with the tracks It's Only Me and Spunky being early exponents of electronic jazz. At the time electronica was transforming popular music in reaction to the big orchestrations of the late 1970s prevalent on James' previous works. The minimalist tastes of the era were also reflected in Roberta, which mostly featured James in a piano solo. 071920 Bob James in Canton, OH at Gervasi Vineyard Buy Tickets. Latest Tweet.
