José James – Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel Cover)

The legendary Billy Joel is hallowed ground on these DH pages so if you’re going to step up and take on the piano man you better bring all you’ve got. NYC soloist José James proves he can hang with the best on his touching take on The Stranger standout “Just The Way You Are.”

Taken from the forthcoming No Beginning No End 2, this current cover exudes modern soul strokes while still maintaining the original’s pop-focused appeal. But it’s the R&B reimagining, with an eye on jazzy tonality here, that keeps this one fresh enough for contemporary ears to get down with.
