Jose James performs at Billboard Live Tokyo & Osaka
Sexy man, sexy voice… what else could a girl want in the post-Valentine’s day blues.
I mention again and again my admiration for Japanese music selectors for their ability to find high-quality music worldwide and import it into Japan, successfully bridging the gap between language, music and culture… intersecting somewhere near audio-sensory perfection.
For myself I was first introduced to Jose James via Japanese label Jazzy Sport’s DJ and producer Mitsu the Beats who created such a delectable collaboration with the NYC artist that I could hear, taste and smell New York almost as vividly as I could feel and see Mitsu’s record needle and music notes weave a dream within a dream of vinyls, NYC sidewalks and couples with hands clasped on an autumn day through Yoyogi park.
Is it possible to want to fall in love and have it broken just to be able to fall in love again all at the same time?
That’s how this music makes me feel, that’s how Jose James makes me yearn.
Jose James will performing live in Tokyo, Japan February 18th & 19th as well as Osaka on February 20th
