Soul Brother...

I've been listening to James Hunter all weekend...
I didn't realize that so few people knew
(at least here in France)
about him and his music
I just had to share...
British singer-songwriter James Hunter talks to CNN
The New York Times described James Hunter as
"Studiously recreating the delicate and comforting soul sound of Cooke,
Jackie Wilson and lesser-known figures like Roy Hamilton and Little Willie John,
Mr. Hunter has mastered a territory of American music
beloved by fans and collectors worldwide.
And with touches of Chuck Berry guitar and some falsetto shouts
from the playbook of James Brown, his style is too eclectic
to be easily pigeonholed..."

I'd love to know what you think...
