TCDP TOP PICK | José James at the Cedar Cultural Center

01/29/2013 - 7:30pm

TCDP TOP PICK: The Minneapolis-born R&B singer José James has been topping charts around the world with his album No Beginning No End on the legendary Blue Note label. On January 29, local audiences will have a rare chance to see him in his hometown when he plays the cozy Cedar Cultural Center. - Jay Gabler

The rawness is daring, and James has an unconventional vocal style, a deep baritone that’s soft and elegant and at times haunting – like a male Billie Holiday, a darker Lou Rawls or in a lot of ways a human adaptation of Coltrane’s sax work. (Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune)

“I thought singers like this didn’t exist anymore, I was wrong, José James is here to remind us why we love music so much!” (Gilles Peterson, BBC Radio 1)

Soulful Minneapolis-born singer and composer José James presents music from his new album No Beginning No End (1/22/2013, Blue Note Records) in an intimate homecoming concert.

Funkmeister DJ Brian Engel of Hipshaker opens.
