LISTEN: DJ Spinna — “The Eccentric Movements of Jose James”

@josejamesmusic gets an extended brush up from @djspinna

[UPDATE: The stream was taken down by James's label as of 9/19.  Sorry, folks!]

I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating: Along with Gregory Porter, Jose James is one of the brightest, rising jazz vocalists on the scene today.  The opening moments of 2008′s The Dreamer showcase a voice that sounds uncannily like someone blowing into a tenor sax.

What we know is that James has a new album forthcoming from Blue Note, No Beginning, No End.  Unfortunately, there’s no release date, as yet.  In the meantime, we have DJ Spinna to thank for this dope remix album of a lot of James’s music.  It’s a great treat and provides a nice overview of what Jose’s been up to.

1. Love Conversation
