Waving thru streams of unbearable fate

1 02 2009

My kind of vocal jazz, taken from Italian acid jazz renaissance man Nicola Conte‘s latest offering, Rituals, and featuring the one and only José James on lead vocals. Easy listening, perhaps a bit too polished for hardcore jazz aficionados, but what a wonderful groove. Rituals is mandatory Sunday afternoon listening, musically diverse yet consistently entertaining. Bravo.
