Best Covers: José James ‘Lean On Me’

Singer, songwriter and lifelong fan José James honors the great Bill Withers with the September 28 release of Lean On Me (Blue Note), a loving tribute album that features 12 of the legendary singer and songwriter’s most undeniable and soulful songs in honor of his 80th birthday year.

James is often celebrated for his genre-blending— his prolific output over the past decade has crisscrossed jazz, R&B, soul, hip-hop and indie rock—but this project is different.
