Jose James has been making a name for himself for the past few years. From last years No Beginning No End to his stirring rendition of “Everybody (Loves Sunshine)” on Takuya Kuroda’s Rising Son album, which James also produced. The man just does not stop either, this summer he will release his second Blue Note offering, While You Were Sleeping. With the previous release being more soulful and jazz inspired, he promises this one will be more reflective of some of his other musical influences such as Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix. Those two influences couldn’t be any more apparent than on the first single from the project, “EveryLittleThing”. Keep June 10th marked on your calendar, you’ll want to pick this album up and check it out.
