Picks and Pans Review: James Hunter
Proving that soul knows no color or nationality, British singer James Hunter channels Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Jackie Wilson on a U.S. debut that uncannily captures the essence of vintage '50s and early '60s R&B. Hunter, who has released two previous discs overseas, wraps his rich voice around self-penned songs that sound as if they have been preserved in a time capsule. Although the nostalgia act wears a bit thin toward the end of the album, by then the charming Hunter has won you over.
