Lee Fields & the Expressions Staff Pick

When: Thu., March 31, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: $15
Occasionally, soul screamer Lee Fields has to suffer the nickname "Little JB," reducing his mercurial talent to the status of a James Brown usurper. Sure, listening to Fields' long discography, he owes a great debt to The Godfather — so does any producer who's ever sampled the thoroughly "Funky Drummer." This 65-year-old separates himself from Brown and other scorchers with a deep sense of melancholy, hurting even as the brass tries to lift a tune into ecstasy. On his new record Emma Jean, Fields continues his brilliant run on Brooklyn’s Truth & Soul label with a voice that breaks and soars with abandon.
