Veteran crooner Lee Fields, now in his sixties, tours last year's Faithful Man, on which he finally hits his stride as the result of four decades spent playing in countless styles. Paradoxically, contemporary soundmen helped him successfully re-create the sound he was raised on, fulfilling the potential grandeur promised by the previous album. Clearly, Fields has found the high ground between classic soul and modern interpretation.
