Since he showed up on the international scene a few years ago vocalist José James has consistently amazed everyone with his combination of soul & soultronica, hip-hop & spoken word, jazz & mod jazz. Using his musical mentors John Coltrane, Marvin Gaye and Billie Holiday as compasses. Blessed with a warm, rich & smooth baritone voice that the listener can identify the same way one can hear the characteristic voices of Bill Withers, Nat King Cole, Marvin Gaye, Terry Callier or any of the great ones... That is the voice of José James!
The selecion below is made with songs from various releases over the past few years.
It's a selection that takes you on a trip with the voice of José, a trip that takes you from Brooklyn, New York over the Pacific to Tokyo and over the Atlantic and the collaborations with people from the music scenes of Italy, Finland, Germany, Japan and the UK...
1 Love, enjoy!
