“Catch up with Jose James now because he’s a rarity – an artist evolving at warp speed.”

—NPR All Things Considered

“The vocalist José James makes utterly contemporary music…in his elegant, cerebral, seductive way… [He] 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

“[James has] always been one to try stuff out – he successfully collaborated with Flying Lotus on Blackmagic… he finds a way to make an eclectic approach feel unified and whole.”

—Pitchfork

“[James] 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.”

—The New York Times

“Is José James a jazz singer or a soul singer? Old school or new school? A guardian of tradition or a seeker of thrills? Yes, yes and yes.”

—Los Angeles Times

“James [is a] genre hybridist who claims both b-boys and jazz purists in his fan base… a winningly singular presence in contemporary American music. Not just singular, but magnetic.”

—Los Angeles Times
