James Mason only made one album, that got acclaim years after its release. “Rhythm Of Life” became a soul-jazz cult classic, recorded around 1978/79 with musicians such as Narada Michael Walden and Gene Torres, and featuring Clarice Taylor’s beautiful, characteristic vocals. The multi-instrumentalist recorded far more tracks around the release of “Rhythm Of Life”, but his music became out of fashion because musical trends shifted. Another album never arrived, and the recordings ended up in a box. Over three decades after first releasing "Rhythm Of Life", James Mason rediscovered tapes with more recordings from the same late seventies period. “The Dance Of Life” (ft. Bernard Purdie on drums and Fonda Rae on backing vocals) and “Up Jump” are the first two tracks that Rush Hour reissued on 12'', later included in the "Recollection Echo" album that RH also released on vinyl.
