No Beginning No End, José James’ fourth album, reminds me of A.C. Slater. Remember how he was the captain of just about every team at Bayside…AND he could dance?
Okay, this is a terrible comparison, but throughout the album, José James showcases his ability to perform in nearly every style. “Do You Feel” is the album’s sexy slow jam, and good gravy I love the organ accompaniment. The piano solo goes from being beautifully understated to introducing a strange chord progression unheard of elsewhere in the song, which brilliantly removes any risk of redundancy that would otherwise adversely affect a seven-minute song.
Or maybe I just loves me a good slow jam.
