Javier's self-titled debut disc is a smoothly executed, spare-no-expense foray through old-school R&B, helmed by a variety of veteran producers including the Underdogs (B2K, Brandy) and the team that brought you Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears, among other contemporary pop icons. But don't be fooled by the upscale company he keeps--Javier has an extensive store of influences from which to draw.
Elements of '70s icons like Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, and Donny Hathaway appear in the ornately romantic "Song For Your Tears" and the album's jazzy extended finale, "October Sky," which features a couple of jazz legends in noted pianist Mulgrew Miller and trumpeter Roy Hargrove (the latter no stranger to this kind of jazz/R&B crossover). It's obvious that Javier's roots run deep. But though this album is an open display of where the singer is coming from, it's clear both from his confidence in his choice of material and his subtle execution of these songs that his start as frontman for the Derek Trucks band is long behind him. He's found his true musical calling.
