JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound: Want More
Buy! - (Bloodshot)
This Chicago band’s second album is a lively set of gritty old-school soul and funk injected with some raw garage-rock aggression. An energetic blend of tight, funky rhythms, stabbing horns, keyboards and guitars accompanies frontman JC Brooks, whose impressive vocals gracefully glide between grainy shouting and smooth crooning with some spine-tingling falsetto on songs ranging from hedonistic party starters to socially conscious anthems. 10/7/2011 - Don Yates
