Jose James - The Music of Billie Holiday

If you find yourself in search of music that needs no special effects, visualizers or voice modifiers, we have just the thing. Jazz-slash-soul vocalist Jose James paid a visit to Belgium at the beginning of the month, wooing the crowd minute by minute for over an hour and twenty minutes. The set, titled "Yesterday I Had the Blues" thematically featured the timeless music of Billie Holiday. Even more bittersweet was James' rendition of "Strange Fruit", a special tribute James dedicated to Trayvon Martin. Watch the entire performance here and stream "Strange Fruit" below.
