José James is classy, groovy and he always gets the right intension and feeling. The new Blue Note ambassador already received many distinctions for his last 5 albums under his own name. From Flying Lotus to Gilles Peterson, Chico Hamilton and Jason Moran, his guests are musical references for the finesse of their very own style. As this year is the hundredth anniversary of Billie Holiday’s birth, he released Yesterday I had the Blues to pay tribute to his most influential musical inspiration. A new reading, sober and elegant of Lady Day’s most remarkable work, performed by an inimitable male singer.
