A seductive new sound from Zena James - the voice you’ll remember…
British jazz-soul vocalist Zena James sings refreshingly original, groove-based jazz. Inspired as much by seventies soul as by the jazz greats, her second album, "Captivated", features two funky & expressive originals: "Captivated" and "You Move Me".
Zena's style is soulful, compelling and groovy - you'll get hidden jazz gems, a new, crossover take on popular standards and irresistible, low-down R&B sounds...
Come on in and listen!
