I have a brand new song, not yet released, from a star that is already up for two Grammy nominations on this weekends February 14th Grammy show for his work last year. One of the current premier jazz artists, Jon Batiste is also the band leader on the Late show with Stephen Colbert. Thanks to Amanda over at Crossover Media we have an early single from Batiste’s latest album that will be released March 19th. This is a very upbeat song that showcases the very talented Batiste’s vocal range and also contains Batiste’s instrumental breaks on both piano and saxophone. Batiste describes his song as a vibe cleanse and he says after 2020 the song is like a warm hug. His not yet released album will be titled We Are and the single I have to play for you is titled I Need You.

I have more cool music from Jon Batiste. Batiste just won a Golden Globe award a few weeks ago on February 3rd  for Best Original Score for a Motion Picture for his jazz compositions and arrangements for the Disney movie Soul. From that movie I will play Jon Batiste with It’s All Right.
