Jose James to Replace Omar at SummerStage in Marcus Garvey Park
American singer Jose James wields a rich baritone and blends modern jazz, with cross-generational references that dabble in traditional and contemporary jazz and soul. James performed earlier this season as part of SummerStage in Central Park as support to singer Corinne Bailey Rae.
