Bob James and David Sanborn are together again. 27 years after their first collaboration, the Grammy winning album 'Double Vision'.

Their new project 'Quartette Humaine' inspired something that had never happened before between the two leaders; touring together.

The quartet was devoid of any electronic instruments allowing them to just play, and set the tone for night of acoustic jazz, well received by an enthusiastic audience at The Keswick Theater in Glenside, PA, just outside of Philadelphia.

The performance consisted of both James' and Sanborn's compositions.

James noted that Dave Brubeck passed during the recording of
'Quartette Humaine' resulting in two tunes, 'You Better Not Go to College and 'Follow Me', being dedicated to Dave Brubeck's classic quartet featuring Paul Desmond.

Those who came to reminisce on the 'Double Vision' LP weren't disappointed when the quartet played two Marcus Miller compositions 'Maputo' and 'Just Friends.

James and Sanborn were accompanied by legendary drummer, Steve Gadd and bassist Scott Culley.
