James Labrosse is a New York-based musician, who was born in a Spanish-speaking neighborhood in South Florida. His latest album, Orange Night is full of smooth RnB, 80’s synth, and jazz. Although I don’t find myself listening to the jazz type RnB genre a lot, I can certainly appreciate the sound of the album and good music in general. Orange Night is a very soothing and peaceful project with plenty of instrumentals, and it’s great for expanding my musical horizons.
The standout track is “Orange Night” as James shows off his vocal capabilities and his insane vocal range. A close favorite is “La Mañana,” where Angeles Toledano lays out strong vocals with upbeat instrumentals to accompany it.
In talking about the album, James stated: “I love to have my audience feel something special within themselves, and I found that mixing sounds of different cultures and backgrounds have always been a great platform to make music more powerful.”
Orange Night is James Labrosse’s contribution to the growing flamenco-jazz genre. The album was developed over the course of two years, as James combines different genres together to create a new sound. He combined authentic flamenco guitar with 80s sounds and R&B.
