Jose James... get to know one!

Jose James is a young jazz vocalist from New York signed to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings. Affiliation with GP already says a lot, as the man commands a lot of respect with his great taste. Anyway James' album The Dreamer is very worthy of copping, and here is a video from one of the tracks from that album, a cover of Freestyle Fellowship's Park Bench People. Enjoy and look out for a collab album between Jose James and another one of the faves Flying Lotus.

update: here is the original Freestyle Fellowship version
