Live at Oxford Art Factory
Recorded at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney Australia
The missing link between Gil Scott-Heron, FlyLo and Chet Baker. Soulful jazz crooner José James live at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory.
This smokey baritone who shares a hometown with _(artist-name)Prince_ and Dylan, and a fan base with true school jazz cats and the _(artist-name)Dilla_ enthusiasts of this world already scored comparisons to _(artist-name)Jon Lucien_ and _(artist-name)Gil Scott-Heron_. A crooner in the mold of old who is just as comfortable approximating mighty Coltrane and _(artist-name)Chet Baker_ as he is at home revitalising the soulful native tongues approach to the mic. Enchanting, spiritual, with emotional depth and a sharp sense for observational lyrics, the North London by way of Brooklyn based singer-songwriter already poised at the bring of generations. Discovered and endorsed by _(artist-name)Gilles Peterson_ and his Brownswood Recordings camp, José’s discography so far encompasses two solo albums and collaborations with the likes of _(artist-name)Jef Neve_, _(artist-name)Flying Lotus_ or _(artist-name)Jazzanova_. Dream on, dreamers!
