Cool James and Black Teacher (sometimes Cool James and the Black Teacher) was a Swedish Eurodance group consisting of Cool James (James Dandu) and Black Teacher (J. Masena). The group was formed in Solna, Sweden and was signed to Stockholm Records.

Their first singles never became big hits, it was not until they released their album Zooming You with the single "Dr. Feelgood" in 1994 that they broke through. It ended as number 21 on the most sold singles list that year and has retained popularity ever since.

James Dandu (Cool James), died in a car crash in his native country of Tanzania on August 27, 2002.
