Product Details

Joses sublime cover version of Freestyle Fellowships "Park Bench People" at last gets a full 12" release. Rather than plunder the American songbook and churn out standards, Jose has revived this criminally overlooked classic from the early 90s and truly made it his own. It's the sort of track that gets under your skin and stays there. Joses voice comes on at once lazy and hazy but devastatingly powerful; the track is full of atmosphere and passion. The B Side is the white hot "Visions of Violet" conceived and produced by uber electronic hip hop producer Flying Lotus. The pair met when Jose was trying to gain clearance for his Coltrane reworkings (Flylo is the nephew of the late great Alice Coltrane) and sparked a genuine friendship and musical relationship. They are currently working on tracks for Joss sophomore album. A package that oozes class and a jazz singer who looks forward not back, and who will no doubt will one day take his place in the lineage of Black American music as one of the greats. Jose has drawn comparisons to many greats: Gill Scott Heron, Jon Lucian, Terry Callier, Kurt Elling and Andy Bey to name but a few but he has created his own brand of richly sonorous music, a sound that is truly his own.
