This is a big departure for Bob James, who interrupted his stream of smooth jazz projects to produce a lovely album of electronic transcriptions of pieces by the French Baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. As such, they fall squarely in the tradition of Wendy Carlos' realizations of Bach - and in their own way, they approach Carlos' achievements in their imaginative, tasteful selection of timbres. James originally recorded many of these pieces as Christmas gifts for friends and, indeed, these selections (all grouped on side one of the LP) do convey a cheery holiday mood.

Reviews about Bob James - Rameau (1):
*** A "SWITCHED-ON" GEM ***There was a time when I first saw this CD in a store. While I looked on back for the listing of the pieces, I read the print on the bottom that mentioned what kinds of instruments did Bob James played. One of them was the Mini-Moog. It also mentioned "Oberheim," "Roland," and "Yamaha." These names made me think they're synthesizers. I suspected this must be inspired by Wendy Carlos' interpretation of Bach. However, I didn't want to waste my money on a full priced CD. I wanted to get it on sale.Well, one day I was at a flea market looking through CDs. In that box of compact discs was THAT particular one. I got it for about $10! When I first listened to the CD back home, it was very much what I expected. I'm not a jazz fan and I don't have to be. This particular one that Bob James did is not jazz but classical (very much like the way Wendy Carlos did on "Switched-On Bach"). The only non-synthesized instrument I heard is the piano. It blended in very well with the synthesizers. Did you know that Bob James' "Rameau" and Wendy Carlos' Switched-On albums were originally issued by CBS Masterworks? There's something in common besides performing on synthesizers.Years later (sometime after Y2K), I wonder if amazon.com would list that particular CD. What a discovery! It is listed! But, as you may notice, it's out-of-print and it could be hard to get. I'm telling you out there reading this review, if you like the "Switched-On" albums by Wendy Carlos, you may wanna look for this out-of-print CD of Rameau's music. I think this shoud be back in print. Oh yes, also look for "The Scarlatti Dialogues!"
