Review of Black Joe Lewis – Electric Slave (Vagrant/Universal Music Canada)

Black Joe LewisAlong with Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Charles Bradley, Black Joe Lewis is a crucial part of the R&B and soul revival of the past few years. Led by the dynamic Joe Lewis, the man could be James Brown reincarnated. And though Electric Slave doesn’t boast the same across-the-board hyperactivity that the band’s previous two records did, the focus serves these 11 songs rather well. Black Joe Lewis locks into a tight, horn-infused groove on Make Dat Money while Young Girls is perhaps one of the finest displays of unbridled energy that Electric Slave has to offer.
