NEW RELEASE. Lee Fields & The Expressions. Special Night - instrumentals
The instrumental version of the instant classic 'Special Night' by
Lee Fields & The Expressions
 
There are a few terms that get thrown around loosely, two of which are legend and retro-soul. One of these fits Lee Fields hand and glove, one of these doesn't fit at all. Very few people in music have both earned the status of legendary and continue to solidify it. 50 years in the game and only getting better, gaining more fans, and evolving his sound on each album, Lee is in fact a Living Legend.
 
This brings us to the misuse of the term "retro-soul" when talking about Mr. Fields. It seems unfair to tag Lee with a term that implies imitation when he is part of the generation that actually defined the genre. Plain and simple, this is not that. 'Special Night' is a masterclass in soul music past and present.
 
"I feel that every human being's purpose is to do what their inner voice says to do," says
Lee Fields. "And my inner voice, my driving force, wants me to put out music and keep making better records."
 
Produced by Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck, and brilliantly performed by
The Expressions
'Special Night' was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely to tapein three weeks at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. A sense of urgency, equal parts fun and inspiration, and a decent amount of beer and Jack Daniels were the driving forces during the sessions that produced Lee Fields & The Expressions' latest offering.
 
'Special Night' is also the first record in the Expressions catalogue in which every song was written jointly by Lee Fields and The Expressions. "When I record, I make every song like I actually mean it. I mean every word I say. On 'Special Night' I'm talking to my lady - literally, expressing the way I feel", says Fields. "You can tell if a song is real or not, and every moment I'm recording, those moments are real: this is a record about what people do in real life".
 
Whether tackling a tune about love lost, found, or broader topics like the state of humanity, Lee has a very unique and honest perspective that is on display with each unforgettable performance. Also, The Expressions have never been sharper; they, along with Lee, have created a collection of music on 'Special Night', which holds court with pretty much any soul music that came before it.
