Definitely a “chip off the old block”, Justin is the son of master-drummer/educator Chuck James. Though still a young man, Justin James is fast becoming one of the most in demand jazz drummers on the scene today. Most cats are familiar with his abilities as a jazz drummer, but few realize his effectiveness as a leader/manager/businessman. It’s one thing to be a great jazz artist (no mean feat in itself) but entirely another to be able to keep the scene going and growing. Watch this one folks; he’s definitely going to be “going places”.
