I’m off to see the wonderful José James at The Roundhouse tomorrow and I’m very excited. And to celebrate what should be an amazing gig, I thought that I’d give you all a glimpse of his finest moment to date.
It’s a cover of John Coltrane’s classic Equinox and was only ever released as a limited edition white label 10″. Unfortunately it’s now sold out (but not before I got my copy). I really hope that it gets a digital release at some point as it really is a joy: restrained jazz drums, beautiful piano and James’ voice which is like a mix of honey & expensive brandy. Or something.
