For All We Know: José James and Jef Neve on Impulse

We had a great show with José James this Saturday (footage coming) and luckily we can expect new music from José James very soon.

“A labor of love” is how José James describes his May 11, 2010, album For All We Know, his first American release and his first for the Impulse! label. A collaboration between James and noted Belgian pianist Jef Neve, the album finds the charismatic young singer applying his warm, rich baritone to a sterling assortment of jazz and pop, including classic jazz standards like “Tenderly,” “Body and Soul,” Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life” and George and Ira Gershwin’s “Embraceable You.”

Having already won the hearts of international audiences, José James is enthusiastic about the opportunity to make a splash in his home country. “It’s so exciting, and it’s a huge honor to be on Impulse; it’s Trane’s house. I’m very proud of this record, and I love being able to give back to the music that nurtured me.”

José James & Jef Neve – “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good to You”
