[BEYOND PASTICHE] There was a time when saxophonists, not guitarists, were the ruling soloists of modern music. Fitz and the Tantrums vocalist Michael Fitzpatrick knows it. Although he wasn’t born until 1970, it hasn’t stopped him and the rest of the L.A. outfit from tapping into the sound of Motown and the vintage R&B the neo-soul sextet grew up listening to. The band’s second LP, More Than Just a Dream, doesn’t quite shine with the luscious organ-sax combo that carried the melodies on the band’s retro debut, opting instead for hip-hop beats and New Wave panache. The catchy pop hooks and eclectic sound are still there, though, propped up by a sonic backbone reminiscent of another time.
