Jose James. (Janette Beckman)

Singer José James is hitting the road with a new tour dedicated to the music of Bill Withers, who's turning 80 years old July 4. James is a terrific jazz and pop singer with a very warm tone which captures the sincerity, deep feeling, and honest sentiment Withers infused into his songs.

José James celebrates the music of Bill Withers in a concert at Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz May 10 and SFJAZZ on May 11. James also performs twice in one night, May 12, at Cafe Stritch in San Jose; the second performance includes a DJ dance set. Details here.
