Concord Records presents Send One Your Love, a 10-track album of seductive love songs from sax icon Boney James. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Boney has put together the ultimate “musical valentine.” Send One You Love includes new James originals as well as covers from Stevie Wonder, Barry White, the Stylistics and more. Send One Your Love is the third album James has recorded since signing with Concord Records. The album follows his Concord debut – Shine landed him at #1 on the Contemporary Jazz charts and #6 on the R&B chart.

Released 11 days before Valentine’s Day 2009, Boney James’ album Send One Your Love seems intended to function as his romance-themed disc for the holiday. Not that any of the smooth-playing saxophonist’s CDs wouldn’t serve almost equally well as accompaniment to a candlelit dinner and all that comes after, but Send One Your Love is particularly suited to a night of love. In Boney James’ estimation, the height of tender emotion seems to be located on the R&B charts of the mid-’70s; in addition to the title tune, penned by Stevie Wonder, the album contains his jazzy treatments of the Stylistics’ “Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart),” Barry White’s “I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little Bit More Baby,” and the Brothers Johnson’s “I’ll Be Good to You.” In the case of “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” which here features a soulful vocalist over-emoting his way through the lyrics, Boney James may be recalling Nancy Wilson’s version rather than the folk-pop one by its composer, James Taylor. But whether the familiar melodies are intended to recall young love for listeners or the tunes are originals, the music is typically soothing, making this another Boney James album much like its predecessors. ~ William Ruhlmann
