New Release: Jose James – ‘No Beginning No End’

 

The day is finally here for the new Jose James album, No Beginning No End. The work introduces Jose to a more universal audience through his graceful and astute plays with varied styles and genres on the album. He weaves together a sound that is so much more than just jazz and like Robert Glasper did with Black Radio, creates a bridge to help build a new musical frontier.

The star collaborators on the album help it sparkle and shine only more. Producer/bassist Pino Palladino, Glasper, Emily King, Hindi Zahra, and Kris Bowers are just a few of the talents that have helped transcend this project to its highest heights. In case you missed the NPR stream, definitely do kick off your shoes and take a little afternoon break for a listen – you won’t be disappointed.

New Yorkers! Tomorrow is going to be an unforgettable, magical night at the Highline Ballroom as Jose kicks off his US tour with an album release show. Find more details on our event page.

New Track: Robert Glasper – “Consequences Of Jealousy” ft. Meshell Ndegeocello (Sassy Geemix by Georgia Anne Muldrow)

 

Pure ecstasy is this new Georgia Anne Muldrow remix of Robert Glasper’s “Consequences of Jealousy” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello. Is this even fair? Or right? Loving the squiggly sway of the new beat and the enchanting sprinkles of Muldrow vocals to compliment the already mesmerizing hum of Meshell’s voice. Feels like we’re being transported to the middle of a sacred dance on another planet.

Below, also stream Pete Rock’s mellowed out remix of the title track, “Black Radio” as well as a breezy hip hop spin on “Afro Blue” with Erykah Badu compliments of 9th Wonder and special guest appearance from Phonte.
