Lee Fields & the Expressions, Mama K & the Shades, The Ugly Beats

True soul survivor and stellar showman, Lee Fields has honed his chops since cutting a James Brown cover in 1969. After grinding for decades on the Southern soul circuit, the 66-year-old North Carolina native helped stake the turn-of-the-century Brooklyn soul revival vaulting Charles Bradley and the late Sharon Jones to fame. Last year’s Special Night serves a sublime set of bittersweet ballads and slow-burning R&B. – Thomas Fawcett
