José James - Words and Music - 2013

Mixing jazz, beats and soul, José James performs a few acoustic tunes in Studio A, tonight at 9pm on Words & Music. See video now.

Minneapolis-born, NYC-based José James crafts an intelligent and intoxicating mix of jazz, beats and soul. His third album, called No Beginning No End, is his first on the Blue Note label, and it continues to show José blending styles and forging a new vision - while also drawing inspiration from classic pop song structures. In his recent Studio A visit, he scaled back the songs to just voice, piano and acoustic guitar, and we were lucky enough to get video of the performances.
