Lee Fields and the Expressions

REED JACKSON

13 NW 6th Ave.
 
[SOUL] Don’t call the story of Lee Fields a comeback. Unlike his veteran soul brethren Charles Bradley, who is now releasing material again after a hiatus filled with addiction and tragedy, Fields has been steadily putting out new music over his 43-year career. In recent years, he has seen a resurgence with the help of Truth and Soul Records, which has released and produced his last two records, both of which return to the soul sound of the late 1960s. Fields’ voice doesn’t have the strength of Marvin’s, Otis’ or even Bradley’s, but he makes up for it with swagger. In fact, when he started his career, many called him “Little JB” for his resemblance to James Brown, who dominated his performances with a blustering strut. Fields has a similar bravado and—despite his age—hasn’t lost one step.
