Lee FieldsFaithful Man ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2012. Used ... $9.99
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a beautiful indication of Lee's rich legacy in soul music – which stretches back decades, with rare releases on small indie labels! Yet the sound here is much stronger than Fields ever got back in the day – thanks to help from The Expressions, and some sublime Truth & Soul production – a combination that really has the record feeling as if it were recorded for Atlantic at Muscle Shoals at the end of the 60s. Lee's vocals really rise to the setting, and may well be some of his best in years – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how great he always is! A stone home run throughout – with titles that include "Faithful Man", "Wish You Were Here", "Moonlight Mile", "Walk On Thru That Door", "Still Hanging On", "You're The Kind Of Girl", and "I Still Got It".

New Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD

Teddy WilsonMr Wilson – The Fabulous Teddy Wilson At The Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1950. Used ... $18.99
Teddy Wilson's definitely fabulous here – playing with a sense of poise and timing that really links together a number of different piano jazz traditions – no surprise, given how many different scenes Teddy influenced! The setting is simple – just a trio format, with either Al Hall or Al McKibbon on bass, and JC Heard or Kansas Fields on drums – but throughout the record, Wilson is at center stage – working at a level that may well be solo, as his inherent sense of rhythm and swing comes through so strongly in his own notes, there need not be any role for any other instrumentation at all! Most tunes are familiar – but as with the best of Wilson's generation, they're completely remade and remodeled into very personal expressions. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "These Foolish Things", "Rosetta", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "I Surrender Dear", "Bess You Is My Woman", and "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea". CD
(Out of print. CD sleeve has a light stain on the back.)
