A few weeks ago I caught James Hunter as he tore through an absolutely smoldering set of his horn infused soul music at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia (listen here). With a sound reminiscient of people like Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Jackie Wilson, his live show is a party not to be missed as James pours 110% into every performance. His latest disc, The Hard Way is easily among the best of 2008 so far. As if that wasn’t good enough, James is teaming up with Chris Isaak, an amazing showman himself, in what is sure to be one of the hottest double bills of the summer. Check it out when it heads your way, and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes because this one will be impossible to not get up and shake your thing to.
