Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
For decades, Charles Bradley had all of the charisma, vocal chops, and emotion of the R&B greats—but none of the visibility. Last year's No Time for Dreaming (Daptone/Dunham) is a breakthrough debut achievement for an artist of any age, let alone a guy in his 60s who might have toiled away in obscurity as a James Brown cover act forever. The hunger in this man's voice is something that comes once in a generation, and aside from Brown, Al Green, and Otis Redding, there are few who dare tread where Bradley goes when he sings. 18+
