Jose James!
Anyone else diggin Jose James??

I caught him performing at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival a few weeks ago, and damn he can sing! I had not heard of him before, but Gilles introduced him and said he is signed to his own Brownswood Recordings.

He has a really smooth voice and uses a great combination of soul, hip hop and jazz in his songs.

Def check him out if your into this style - www.josejamesmusic.com

Yep another fan of Jose James.

Love the Dreamer plus his collaboration album For All We Know with the Belgian jazz pianist Jef Neve is good too.

Would be great to see him make it to Aust.

I saw him play with Mark de Clive Lowe in New York recently. They did the most amazing version of Papa Was a Rolling Stone, I'm really looking forward to the June gig!
