José James – Blackmagic

March 3, 2010


José is back with his 2nd full length album which I have played a good 50x since it dropped a  month ago. Whether its better than his 1st album – I will leave that for you to decide, but it is without a doubt the best CD so far in 2010. Blackmagic is an album all about love, with Taylor McFerrin having produced the jazzier numbers, and beatmakers Moodyman, Mitsu and Flying Lotus in charge of the more neo soul/ hip hop flavoured tracks. José  James’s baritone voice is a breath of fresh air and lyrics packed with sincerity. This is another quality Brownswood GP backed project. Make sure you catch The José James Quartet live on tour in Europe this month and also cop the white 12″/ Ep which dropped last week……….Yes they are all essential.

Tour dates for the José James Quartet can be found over at the myspace page:
Jose James (Vocals)
Richard Spaven (Drums)
Nail Charles (Bass)
Grant Windsor (Keys)
Jordana DeLovely (Guest Vocals)

I am very very excited to also hear Jordana Delovely live as she kills it on Love Conversation!!!
