The Grand Opera House, Wilmington
Genre-blurring artist Boney James is touring in support of his sixteenth CD "Honestly".
In a career now spanning twenty-seven years, eleven of James' albums have topped the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart and two have made the top 10 on the R&B Albums Chart, a rare feat for an instrumental artist.
Boney James was gigging with bands by the time he was in his early teens. He apprenticed as a sideman for artists like Morris Day and the Isley Brothers before striking out on his own. The independently released "Trust" led immediately to a major label deal and a string of increasingly successful recordings and live performances.
To date, James has racked up sales of more than three million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, and nominations for two NAACP Image Awards. In 2009, Billboard named him one of the Top 3 Contemporary Jazz Artists Of The Decade along with Kenny G and Norah Jones.
Boney is also renowned for his compelling live performances. According to The Boston Globe: "�James swaggers across the stage like a blacktop hero draining treys on an overmatched opponent. He even weaves his way through the crowd, all but daring them not to have a good time."
