José James

melds John Coltrane and spiritual jazz with hip hop, funk and RnB and draws lyrically on the political expression of Jon Lucien, Terry Callier and James Baldwin. James wants to make a connection between all black music genres and map the lineage. For his latest set DJ Mitsu, Flying Lotus and Moodyman contributed their production talents to help the New Yorker singer shape the future of black music.
