José James: Your Sunday iPod Add

Returning with a vengeance, here is your new Sunday iPod add “Touch” by the extraordinary vocalist José James. “Touch” has become one of my favorite mid tempo jams to listen to.  The driving groove goes down smooth and easy.  Led by the drum and bass, this cut allows James to vocally float over chord changes with what some call a “romantic baritone” voice.  His voice is unique and defies comparison to other male vocalist on the scene today.  Admittedly inspired by the supreme John Coltrane, James’ music is rooted in Jazz and utilizes elements of Soul and Hip Hop, which displays a certain youthful exuberance to be admired.  If you were wondering where is that new vocalist who makes audience stand up and take notice, wonder no more.  José James is an artist you should know.  Add this song to your iPod as soon as possible.  You will thank me later.

Oh, and note to the romantics reading this: James’ songs are smoking hot!  Some soft light and a little wine can amp up an intimate moment . . . watch out dere now!

  1. Just purchased 3 of this man’s albums, including the collabo album with pianist Jefe Neve. The sound puts me right in the mind of sitting in a NYC cafe on a rainy late-June evening, drinking red wine watching people move quickly in the rain–many using newspapers as umbrellas. The yellow cabs and cars have their lights on for the clouds and the sunset. This is some straight hotness.

    I know I haven’t commented in forever but I always read all your posts and listen to whatever you include. Keep up the awesome work Trav.
