A stirring tribute to the one and only Bill Withers.

While no one can perform a Bill Withers song like Bill Withers, the heartfelt effort to honor his music is felt throughout this work. My son was playing “Lovely Day” on the piano one day and I hadn’t heard it in a long time. Long story short, I went to YouTube and the Jose James version came up.  A favorite for many, “Lovely Day” is one of my favorites from this cd. It features Lalah Hathaway. Her voice brings warmth and silkiness. Hopefully there will be more collaborations featuring Jose and Lalah in the future. The results are indeed lovely. If you’d like to listen to music that can be relaxing and on the other hand sensitive and emotional, give this cd a try.
