Welcome to my website! This is the home of Detroit Saxophonist James Hughes.
I recently released my fourth recording with co-leader Jimmy Smith titled THE GATES, but this time we teamed up with NYC Trombonist John Yao
JazzTimes calls THE GATES "...a thing of beauty...a well-wrought affair."

and All About Jazz writes:
"The entire project demonstrates the continuing power of hard bop when played with energy and focus. These players make it sound fresh and new."
