Lee Fields & the Expressions at the World Cafe Live

Pint-sized soul man Lee Fields & the Expressions play the World Cafe Live tonight. The gruff, pugnacious North Carolina native, now based in Plainfield, N.J., is a terrific one-step-removed-from-James Brown live performer, who hasn't received the attention he deserves in the current retro-soul revival. Put it this way: Sharon Jones started to make a name for herself when she tried out to sing back-up in Fields' band. I saw him upstairs at the WCL when he was pushing his album Faithful Man last year at the Non-Comm convention, and he tore it up for real. 

Below, check out the videos for "Love Comes and Goes" and "Ladies" (which is mashed up with clips featuring Marcello Mastroanni in Federico Fellini's 8 1/2).
