Fourplay – Live In Cape Town (2005). Fourplay is a jazz supergroup comprised of Bob James, Nathan East, Larry Carlton, and Harvey Mason. Their smooth sounds have endeared them to jazz connoisseurs all over the world, and this live recording finds them playing in Cape Town, South Africa, on a stop on the band’s 2005 tour.
It’s been a few years since Fourplay released a new DVD. The last one (An Evening Of Fourplay) with Lee Ritenour on guitar was around 1994. Now this new one features Larry Carlton on guitar replacing Lee Ritenour. And after about tewnty years the smoothjazz group is still retaining it’s musical edge. All the way to the contient of Africa. The music sounds great with songs like Bali Run, Galaxia and Amazing Grace. The playing of Harvey Mason on drums, Bob James on keyboards, Nathan East on bass and vocals and Larry Carlton on guitar. Makes a great life perormance for all to enjoy. My only complaint is that there are no special features on this DVD. A behind the scene interview with the group would have been nice. Or maybe a behind the scenes look at the making of the show and the trip to Africa.Well, anyway this is a good DVD with some good music done right by a great group. (Source)
