LEON BRIDGES // COMING HOME (COLUMBIA RECORDS)

Smooth, sultry soul music reminiscent of Van Morrison meets Pops Staples meets Taj Mahal meets pieces of The Band’s repertoire.  Some tunes are swingin’ (#6 + #9) with horns, some are soulful doo-wop (#5) and others are more traditional in their soul/R&B vibes.  Track 10 is a spacious acoustic+tambourine arrangement highlighting Leon’s vocals nicely with backing gospel vocals and feels like the power went out in a church and everyone decided that the show must go on.

RIYL: Van Morrison, Staples Singers, Taj Mahal, The Band | Play: 9, 5, 1, 2, 10, ALL | FCC: Clean
