On & On: José James Sings Badu

ON & ON: JOSÉ JAMES SINGS BADU

Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at 7:30PM

“It’s simple” James explains. “Jazz singing has always been about interpreting the highest level of standards of your time. And for my generation Erykah Badu has been one of the most innovative and incisive songwriters. Her work has proven to be groundbreaking in a social, musical and artistic sense.” In that light, his new project, On & On: José James Sings Badu finds James throwing down down the gauntlet on the past 100 years of jazz singing while charting a bath forward for the culture. The album, produced by James with contributions from like-minded musicians Big Yuki (A Tribe Called Quest), Ben Williams (Kamasi Washington) and Jharis Yokley (My Brightest Diamond) investigates the breadth of Badu’s iconic catalog, from her groundbreaking debut album Baduism to her contemporary masterpieces New Amerykah Pt. 1 & 2.
