Every so often a voice comes around that leaves an impression that lasts long past the playing of the final track on a CD. Boston's James Aldridge has that type of voice. This is true soul music with a smooth jazz feel! James was influenced by Nat King Cole, Bobby Caldwell and Al Jarreau. He is often compared with the likes of Phil Perry, Jeffrey Osbourne and Will Downing Jr. Close Your Eyes includes 11 soulful tracks produced by Lester Goodwine.
