It’s as intoxicating and sexy as it gets. When jazz and soul meets R&B and hip-hop, only José James can pull off such an extreme combination. The New York Times called his new album ‘No Beginning No end’ as “cool and confident” while; Metro publishing used the word “triumphant”.
In all, the Minneapolis-born jazz singer and composer will come to Singapore’s TAB, for the second time on 18 February, to share his sultry and warm voice and undeniably smooth blending of genres.
‘It's All Over Your Body’ – Jose James
Describing his Blue Note Records debut, the 33-year-old singer said: “’No Beginning No End’ sums up how I feel about music right now. I don’t want to be confined to any particular style. I decided I didn’t want to be considered a jazz singer anymore and that was really freeing.”
Liberating as it maybe for José James, listeners can expect to be infatuated with the diverse musical elements portrayed in his album. For one, it gives a rather compelling take into the depths of contemporary music that he independently conceived, recorded and produced.
‘Trouble’ – Jose James
His song such as ‘Trouble’ shows off the instrumental perfections that deliver a harmonic and sensual vibe, which will have your soul yearning for a larger dose of jazz. Yet, songs such as ‘Come to my door’ , an acoustic duet with Emily King, is a breath of fresh air for listeners who want something less thrilling and more simplicity.
Experience José’s new chapter in his artistic journey at the recently renovated TAB Singapore and be engulfed into a whole new aesthetic nature that feeds your inner cravings for music that can’t be labelled.
