Incredibly honored and humbled to have played both New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Preservation Hall last night. I felt the presence of my ancestors, especially my grandmother on that stage and in those rooms. Music is a beautiful gift that we share together. Amen. Really excited about this new band and ready to hit the road in the US and EU. Tour dates up on my website. Minneapolis is on the list! Hometown show, pull up fam!! Shout it to my brother Kirk Washington aka Bro Sun who’s gone too soon. You writing poems up in Heaven my brother. He was the one who told me I’d travel to Europe someday and see the world. As we performed in late night poetry slams and sat in at jazz clubs in the Twin Cities. Thank you brother, you were right. Wise beyond your years, we miss you 🙏🏽🖤✊🏽 —— 📸: Clay PatrickMcBride #josejames #leanonmetour

Tonight I’m playing New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, closing out the Jazz Stage. That is a tremendous honor and I want to say thank you to the festival, to the city of New Orleans and to my fans for bringing me here. I’ve waited 10 years for this moment and it’s gonna be epic! Some things are just worth waiting for. Some of the first jazz albums I heard were of Louis Armstrong singing and playing right here in this city. And later when on when he lived in Chicago and then NYC, my home. Music transcends time and space. It goes directly into our hearts and plants a seed of tomorrow. Thank you to Louis Armstrong for inventing jazz singing and to all his mighty disciples who spread the gospel: Billie, Ella, Nat, Ray Charles, Sarah, Dinah, Sinatra.. it’s a long list that continues right up to today with Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Gregory Porter, Cecile McLoren Salvant... we’re living in a beautiful time and I’m grateful to be alive and to make music. See y’all tonight at Jazz Fest! 🙏🏽 📸: Taali ‪#josejames‬ ‪#leanonmetour‬
