Sexagenarian soul/funk singer Lee Fields is an American treasure. In 1969 he released his first single “Bewildered/Tell Her I Love Her,” and the man is still pumping out bangers—the most recent of which are on 2019’s It Rains Love. The soul veteran has worked with countless legendary artists—from B.B. King to Kool and the Gang—but the younger cats appreciate Fields’ work as well; Travis Scott’s mega hit “Antidote,” for instance, samples Lee Fields and the Expressions’ “All I Need” from 2014’s Emma Jean. Tonight Fields is paired with an opening performance from Portland-based indie folk rock icon Y La Bamba, who will no-doubt be performing highlights from the two excellent projects she put out this year: the 14-track Mujeres and an EP called Entre Los Dos. This evening is one of those instances where making the trip downtown for an experience at the Roseland will be totally worth it.
