Amazing Cover: "Simply Beautiful" (José James)
Last night I was talking with a new friend about music and he brought up the brilliant José James and how he was gearing up to release another album, this time a tribute to the late Billie Holiday and therefore, I thought it would be nice to revisit one of my favorite covers from the underrated crooner.
With that said, rediscovered José James's involvement in Capitol Studios' 1 Mic 1 Take series where the famed crooner opted to take on the Al Green classic "Simply Beautiful" for his performance in this acoustic guitar led cover.
Watch José's impassioned acoustic rendition of "Simply Beautiful" below and Enjoy!
