Huge Jon Batiste fan here. Here’s his latest up top, “I Need You.” So great.
The only problem is that it’s so short! He has a new album coming out in a couple of weeks, We Are, so that’s a thing to look forward to. Preorder it here.
He’s truly amazing. His conversation with Terry Gross of Fresh Air is absolutely worth your time. Find it here.
Here’s Jon Batiste wandering his hometown of New Orleans, giving a tour a few years ago to Stephen Colbert, who had just brought him on as bandleader for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Jon Batiste believes that music is the thing that brings us together. It’s the best kind of infectious.
