RIYL: Charles Bradley, Lee Field and the Expressions
Label: Daptone Records
English R&B rockÂ & soul brother James Hunter, now 55 years young, appears to be getting cooler with age.Â Discovered at a small London club in the ’90s by Van Morrison, Hunter’s been cranking out that golden classic sound of the 50s and 60s for a good 3 decades now.Â Sultry saxophones collide with warm organs, rich jazzy guitar tones and Hunter’s ‘pack a day’ vocal rasp to make another timeless full-length here.Â Whatever it Takes marks his third release with The Six, a sure hit for any fan of Charles Bradley, Lee Fields and Sharon Jones.Â Instabuy.
