"James has this rolling kind of beat that's smooth and easy, but relentless. It's constantly swinging and consistantly funky. He's not the kind of drummer who depends on technique in order for his music to be viable. He can stick with something that's very basic, and it providesw a bed that's so comfortable for the other musicians to ride on"... Herbie Hancock
