Grec 2015: Lee Fields & The Expressions

  • Music, Funk, soul and disco

Time Out says

James Brown, The Temptations, Eddie Floyd, Otis Redding, classic sixties Memphis soul... That was the soundtrack to Lee Fields’s childhood. Since he began singing in the late-'60s, he’s mastered James Brown-style funk, as well as contemporary blues and soul. In the seventies he was a funk legend, while in the '90s he was enthusiastically championed by soul-blues fans. Today his records continue to be appreciated in scenes as diverse as hip hop and rare groove. His nine albums, from Problems (2002) to his latest release, Emma Jean (2014), all recorded with his band The Expressions, provide an endless source of pleasure for fans delighted by his revival of the classic sound of US R 'n' B.
