José James is the jazz singer from Brooklyn who doesn't want to rework the American Songbook, turn himself into a cabaret show, or scat at a million notes a minute, as if he were a saxophone. His debut album finds the gracefully soulful James supported by an acoustic jazz group. This newly remastered, The 10th Anniversary edition of the José James first album, features 4 additional tracks.


On the debut album from New York New School vocalist Jose James, he makes a move toward a new era of jazz vocals. While jazz elements have been making their way into underground hip-hop for years, James turns the other direction. He sings contemporary jazz with a strong sense of respect for the classics, but quietly puts hip-hop instrumentation behind his vocals, and multi-tracks himself for accentuation. James is in the midst of creating an entirely modern approach to jazz singing here over a set of originals with a few covers thrown in (the highlight being Rahsaan Roland Kirk's "Spirits Up Above").
