José James is also called the jazz artist for the hip-hop generation. He has showcased his rich and graceful baritone voice through a series of unpredictable projects that have also blurred the lines between traditional and contemporary jazz, soul, funk, house and rock, among other genres. After two successful ”No Beginning No End” albums, a tribute to Bill Withers followed by an ode to Erykah Badu, James returns with his own show. On November 9, he will perform in the Grote Zaal with an impressive band.
