Jose James 'It's All Over Your Body' EP

If you don’t know who Jose James is, then I honestly believe that’s something that’s about to change fairly early in 2013.  Actually, if you don’t know who Jose James is, then you clearly don’t visit this blog as much as you should :)

In anticipation of the release of his fourth album, which also acts as his debut on the prestigious Blue Note Records, an EP to whet your appetite has just been released.  Comprising of six new songs, 'It's All Over Your Body', offers huge promises that this album could very well be James’ breakthrough record and will serve to establish the continuing legacy of one of the brightest stars of his generation.  It’s a bold and fairly clichéd statement but not one I make lightly – I’ve been a frantic flag-waving supporter since ‘The Dreamer’ and I can’t think of an artist who displays more versatility and dedication, and one more deserving of the rewards than James.  Amongst the EP’s highlights are an acoustic version of ‘Come To My Door’ (performed with Emily King) and a DJ Spinna remix of 'It's All Over Your Body', which ranks among some of Spinna’s best… and that’s another bold statement I stand beside!

A quick update on the new album (currently titled, 'No Beginning No End') reports contributions from an A* list of musicians, featuring a line-up including Robert Glasper, Chris Dave, Pino Palladino, Hindi Zahra, Emily King and Amp Fiddler, naming just a few!

I’m beyond excited about it and will definitely be keeping you guys posted on this blog and will be playing anything I get my hands on on the Blue-in-Green Sessions as well.
