PRODUCTIONS

The following releases have appeared under other label imprints (mostly Columbia), but are either described as Tappan Zee productions or feature the familiar Tappan Zee logo as part of the packaging - often due to Bob James's hand in the production. The Kirk Whalum productions are only Tappan Zee productions in the sense that his participation on Bob James's albums at the time was listed as "courtesy of Columbia/Tappan Zee Records."

The following Bob James recordings include a Tappan Zee insignia, but no reference to the Tappan Zee label and are, therefore, not specified in this discography. Interesting to note that not all of the recordings Bob James - or his group, Fourplay - made after his last official Tappan Zee recording (1984's 12) include the Tappan Zee insignia:
