BOB JAMES feat. Rasheeda – “Sweet talk me now” (1999)

For some time now I was thinking which soulful track I should post from multi-talented pianist Bob James. Well, I chose an appropriate sensual nugget from 1999 featuring Rasheedah Buckner on lead vocals taken from his album “Joy ride” released on Warner Bros Records.
