Corinne Bailey Rae’s brand of soulful R&B has won her multiple Grammy and MOBO awards; gentle music with heart and nuance, over the past decade she’s written about love and intuition as her soul-jazz sound has evolved. The Guardian named her latest studio album The Heart Speaks In Whispers “the best R&B of 2016”; It was also featured on President Barack Obama’s summer playlist. She’s joined by the American singer Jose James, who wields a rich baritone and blends modern jazz, with cross-generational references that dabble in traditional and contemporary jazz and soul.
