Music Monday : José James
I guess I've been in the mood lately to add a little more structure to the blog. Before the weekend I told you I'd like to get my small business column, small business, small steps, going as a regular Friday feature. Today, I'd like to add another one, Music Mondays. I know the title is a wee bit unoriginal (and not as delicious as the now defunct Muffin Mondays) but I can promise that the content will be tasty to the ears and hopefully new and exciting to you too.
Big Chuck, my fiancé, chef and resident music aficionado, sent me a link to José James' website on Friday. I spent the weekend listening to his new album Blackmagic (the title track is one of our faves). Here are a few words on James from my music man himself, "One could describe José James as a male version of Erykah Badu. His tracks are based around solid grooves and he artfully blends elements of hip hop, soul, jazz and funk." (ditto). I think it's a perfect album for a romantic Valentine's Day too.
Have a musical Monday!
