Heard every Monday to Friday between 1.00pm and 3.00pm on the ABC's 702, James Valentine has made a welcome return to the live music scene fronting his own soulful jazz combo. It's a long overdue return for James who has never lost his love of the saxophone and jazz greats such as Dexter Gordon and Stanley Turrentine.

James' musical history traces right back to Grade 3 where he discovered the joys of the recorder, followed by the flute and then of course the saxophone – an instrument he played with great success in 80's groups such as The Models, Absent Friends and the Wendy Matthews Band.

Known to often jam with live musical guests on his radio show, James is now taking his saxophone and zany off the cuff patter out to the people with a whole series of gigs around town.
