Album Notes

San Francisco Bay Area music fans are well acquainted with Timothy "Space Captain" James as a psychedelic-pop band leader (Aquamarine, Squire-James Band, Big Luv Nation)and solo acoustic performer of uncommon presence. With the release of his latest project, "Burning In Color", issued independently under the "HIFIDELIC" moniker, it's time to meet some new and equally compelling facets of James' musical personality.

For starters, the album is chock full of slinky grooves, funkily understated keyboard textures and silky smooth vocals. (Think Hall & Oats and the blue-eyed soul elite.) Check out "Working Girl 2000", "Fire and Ice", "Fire of Our Love" and "Starvin' For Marvin", James' socially-conscious nod to a certain Mr. Gaye. And throughout the album's R&B flavored numbers, James also flashes a subtle but unmistakable cool jazz sensibility. Toss in a taste of contemporary beats and rhymes (rapper A g freestyles on "Sir Real Santa Cruz") and it's clear that this is one space captain who's comfortable exploring all corners of the pop universe.

Don't get the wrong idea, James' rangy guitar-pop roots don't go untended. "Artichoke Paradigm", a reflective, melodic rocker, and "Dr. Feelgoode", with it's soaring duel electric guitar passages, fit right into the eclectic mix. Come to think of it, same goes for atmospheric instrumental interludes including "Brew Bop", "Hard Beets", "Lyle's Mood" (a lovely solo acoustic piano number) and "Ocean Swells". It all fits together because James - who wrote, arranged, performed and produced damn near every diverse lick - moves effortlessly across genre boundaries. Face it, James is a tough guy to pigeonhole, but if you use the word "soulful" you'll never miss the mark.

Another homerun! Great blend of music and sound!
Great CD. From the opening song of BrewBop to the end of Fire Love, this CD engages the listener. A must in your CD collection.

Just Great! I love the cool jazzy sound
This is a fresh new sound. The blend of hip hop, pop, and classic jazz is evident in each song. The sounds and words of this artist mix so beautifully together. A one of a kind CD that is destined for the top!

Rob Waxman

This CD makes me want to join the band!
This music is lush and atmospheric. It takes me away in an Aquamarine kind of way...
