José James

  • José James is: a jazz vocalist whose stylings incorporate hip-hop, R&B, and electronica
  • His musical pedigree: he is the son of a Panamanian jazz saxophonist, attended New York's New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and was a finalist in the 2004 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocalist Competition
  • How easily he jumps genres: he is known for collaborations with such acts as rapper Oh No and experimental producer Flying Lotus
  • But his passion is still: jazz—as he explained to Billboard "When it's all said and done, jazz with a capital J is where I'm coming from."
  • What The New York Times said about his 2013 album No Beginning No End: "[it] sounds like the result of the black-pop continuum, jazz and soul and hip-hop and R&B, slow-cooked for more than 50 years."
  • His newest release: While You Were Sleeping, which dropped June 2, 2014
