"James sings with a steely grace that... recall[s] D'Angelo."

José James spent a decade reshaping jazz with the genre-blurring verve of a crate-digging beat guru, before becoming a solo R&B star. The last couple years he lived in Bill Withers’ shoes — recording and touring his legendary songbook for the Lean On Me project.
Back with his beguiling mix of jazz, R&B, pop and soul, singer-songwriter and producer José James announced a brand new future soul album, No Beginning No End 2. This album resurrects the bold eclecticism we first fell in love with, takes us on a journey through both celebration and introspection.

“in his elegant, cerebral, seductive way… [José James] skirts categories with ease, fitting in with current R&B innovators like Frank Ocean or Miguel, yet maintaining a strong awareness of a lineage that stretches from Ray Charles to Marvin Gaye to Lou Rawls to Maxwell… he holistically heals the rift between radio-friendly songcraft and virtuoso flair.” – NPR Music
