Lee Fields and the Expressions

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

It’s impossible to talk about Lee Fields without also bringing up James Brown. An R&B veteran with nearly 50 years of experience, Fields has often been referred to as “Little J.B.” because he so strongly favors the “King of Soul” — both in his appearance and his smoky-smooth pipes. But success didn’t come so easily to Fields. Though he toured with heavy-hitters such as Kool and the Gang and released music throughout the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, he remained in obscurity until Desco, an imprint peddling new records filled with old-school funk, released his scorching Let’s Get a Groove On in 1999. His most recent LPs, 2009’s My World and 2012’s Faithful Man, further that album’s charms, swaying and swaggering with bright horn charts, limber bass lines, and of course Fields’ ever-impassioned belts.
