GPS (Good People, Son) is an eclectic jazz-meets-chamber rock sextet led by celebrated guitarist and composer David James. A lifelong Bay Area resident, James has been involved with seminal local groups for decades - sculpting guitar feedback and ambient sounds with the Thessalonians, touring and recording hip-hop with Spearhead and the Coup, playing afrobeat with Afrofunk Experience, and presenting funky art-song with the Beth Custer Ensemble. “Just like his musical resume, the album’s sound is diverse, showing off the sextet’s technical chops and wide-ranging interests. Songs bounce from jazz to waltz to reggae to blues to Afro-beat to Eurobeat.”
