José James combines jazz and soul in an absolutely contemporary way, with his vocals oscillating excitingly between attack and restraint. Since his discovery by London DJ Gilles Peterson, José James has been riding a wave of success. He has regularly expanded his repertoire with strong homages to important role models, such as Billie Holiday, John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman. José James´ latest opus "Lean on Me" is dedicated to the soul icon Bill Withers and consists of equally intense and authentic cover versions of unforgettable songs.
