Lean on Me: Jose James celebrates Bill Withers
Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 7 pm

A deep and soulful young vocalist whose international profile has exploded in the last few years, José James has transcended his reputation as a jazz singer to embrace influences including R&B, Moroccan Gnawa music, hip-hop and gospel. On the heels of 2015's beguiling Billie Holiday centennial tribute Yesterday I Had the Blues and the electro-pop of this year's Love in a Time of Madness, James returns with a celebration of the music of iconic soul singer and composer Bill Withers.

Lean On Me: José James Celebrates Bill Withers
premiered during the 2018 NYC Winter Jazzfest, on Jan. 11 at Le Poisson Rouge. James' reverent-yet-expansive take on Withers classics including "Ain't No Sunshine," "Use Me," and "Just the Two of Us, are backed by a stellar band made up of serious jazz musicians -- Sullivan Fortner on keyboards, Brad Allen Williams on guitar, Ben Williams on bass and Nate Smith on drums.

Vetted personally by Mr. Withers himself, the show is an exploration of the deep musical catalogue that touched millions of hearts and united communities worldwide.
