  • I'm already an Esperanza Spalding and Robert Glasper fan and look forward to their albums coming out. I wasn't familiar with Jose James and I'm gonna check him out. I am a fan of Jazz so it's nice to see threads like these.

    Yo you have to go to check out Jose James and cop his albums, the brother is smooth and all his albums is short of classic.

    That first song is real tight. I might have to check out some of these new cats. I like jazz, but on the real I've never really bought any jazz cds. I usually don't like single artists enough to do that. I just listen jazz stations on pandora and other internet radio stations.

    that's a nice cover of that classic, Roy Ayers have some great cuts, I really diggin his music right now with Grover Washington Jr. I kind of pissed Robert Glasper was in Oakland last week and i didn't get the chance to buy a tix to see the dude

    Jose James is worth your money, but adding Glasper and Spralding is a nice little collection because it can be played because of the soul and hip-hop feel to it.
