Dirty Red & the Soulshakers — Soul Shakin’


Rock

Louis Fowler
I know most purists would look middle-aged white guys playing soul music and immediately pass — I can’t count how many times I have — but damned if Dirty Red & the Soulshakers don’t rock the joint for all of its juke, lack of pigment notwithstanding.

Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.

Dewey Binns — High Character


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
A lot of hip-hop is pure escapism: fantasies about fast cars, attractive women and having more money than you know what to do with. High Character is not that; it’s about as real and down-to-earth as it gets, while still taking the time to appreciate the small things the world gives us.
