Jazz Hands is Bob James’ third outing for evosound, following in the wake of 2018’s Espresso and 2022’s Feel Like Makin’ LIVE. Produced by the pianist with his manager Sonny Abelardo, the ten-track album was mostly recorded during the months of the Covid pandemic and featured James in a number of different musical settings. It also features a stellar cameo from the ex-Gnarls Barkley singer CeeLo Green on the sensuous title track and includes production input from the legendary hip-hop turntablist DJ Jazzy Jeff, who rose to fame as half of the hit-making ‘80s/’90s rap duo, DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince, early samplers of James’ music. Blending cool jazz tropes with funky dance floor grooves, blues-tinged ballads, cinematic mood pieces, and sensuous slow jams, Jazz Hands is the Missouri pianist’s most eclectic album of his long career. Simultaneously classic and contemporary, it’s Bob James at his majestic, ground-breaking, and timeless best.

Also being released by Hong Kong's EVOSOUND on October 27th 2023 in hybrid Multi~CH SACD [and MQA CD]
I bought Jazz Hands on Amazon UK
nearly £20 but it is DSD mixed.

I hate Stereo SACD it is pointless
Multi channel is the the only way.

Good he added a Long Live Track, at the end.

Quality Jazz Fusion.

I wish Bob James would do a Multi Channel SACD.
