 Blues / Jazz Producer and'70's Soul Singer

The Natural Four's Chris Bell , Pens Revealing Memoir "Music Saved My Live"

 

Ollan Christopher Bell, better known at Chris James, the co-founder of the 70's hit making soul group, The Natural Four, has released his memoir,"Music Saved My Life, From Darkness Into The Light, My Life As A 70's R&B/Soul Singer." In the book, he takes us behind the music and on an intimate trek through his life and times.  James is the husband of jazz and blues diva, Zakiya Hooker.   In addition to producing all five of Zakiya Hooker's albums, he also produced the final John Lee Hooker CD "Face to Face." In addition, James is also the president and co-owner of the John Lee Hooker Boom Boom Recording Studio in Douglasville, Georgia. His last project was a compilation of jazz standards entitled, "Tenderly, Unplugged." 

A good old school love song can take you on a journey and incite the resurgence of memories long gone. The 1973 hit "Can This Be Real" is a prime example. The melody was a Top 40 break through on the R&B charts and The Natural Four were the singular force behind the hit. Ollan Christopher Bell, better known as Chris James knows first-hand about song-induced travels. The Natural Four was his group and in his newly released memoirs "Music Saved My Life, From Darkness Into The Light, My Life As A 70's R&B/Soul Singer" he takes us on an intimate trek through his life and times.
