New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Yamaha Entertainment Group of America today announced the release of a new single from legendary keyboardist Bob James and master bassist Nathan East titled, "Crazy." The single is part of the longtime collaborator's debut duo album, The New Cool, and can be purchased on iTunes.

James and East created an imaginatively arranged version of the song originally penned by Willie Nelson, and made famous by Patsy Cline, "Crazy." The melody bops and swings in sublimely surprising style before the ultimate surprise is revealed: serendipitous vocals from country singer-songwriter, Vince Gill.

Yamaha Entertainment Group founder and vice president Chris Gero put James and East in the recording studio, equipped them with state-of-the-art Yamaha gear and gave them free reign to create. Recorded entirely in Nashville, the long-time collaborators emerged with an unexpected and audacious collection of original compositions plus a few handpicked classics. The New Cool is an acoustic jazz offering that will make you forget everything you thought you knew about these GRAMMY-recognized artists best known as contemporary jazz luminaries. The full album produced by Gero, James and East will be released September 18. Pre-order on iTunes here.

James is a two-time GRAMMY Award-winning jazz keyboardist, arranger and producer. He is recognized as one of the original founders of smooth jazz. His compositions, "Nautilus" from 1974's One and "Take Me to the Mardi Gras" from 1975's Two are among the most sampled songs in the hip hop industry. East is a bassist who has performed with everyone from Quincy Jones and Eric Clapton, to George Harrison, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé and Stevie Wonder, among many others, including the 2014 GRAMMY Record of The Year, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."
