Instrumental Version of Lee Fields and The Expressions 2012 Album!
There aren't too many artists making soul music today who had a release in 1969, back when R&B was first beginning to give the drummer some. Lee Fields, however, is one such artist - or maybe he's better labeled a phenomenon. With a career spanning over 45 years, releases on a dozen different record labels, and having toured the world over with his raucous-yet-tender voice, it's mind-blowing that the music he's making with Brooklyn's Truth & Soul Records is the best of his career.
With The Expressions -Truth & Soul's house band, Fields continues to evolve, enmeshed into the group's sweeping, string-laden, cinematic soul sound. "In a curious case of musical evolution, the older Fields becomes, the closer he gets to perfecting the sound of soul that he grew up with as a young man," so said music writer, scholar, and DJ Oliver Wang about Fields. The 2012 LP from Lee Fields and The Expressions, titled Faithful Man, was yet another next step towards this perfection. A step that found Lee Fields, The Expressions, and Truth & Soul, finally being bestowed the contemporary soul music crown.
