José James - Blackmagic (Brownswood)

A modern jazz singer at home with both traditional and nu-er forms of the music, James brings us his second LP. Alongside a host of electronic greats such as Flying Lotus and Moodymann, he has crafted an album of memorable jazzy gems that capture the imagination. Highs include the woozy Code, jolly Promise In Love and the yearning title track. Blackmagic is an enjoyable musical experience, courtesy of James’s distinctive voice and his hot musical backing.
