Now a chart-topping, critically acclaimed Bay Area Jazz vocalist, Victor Fields was working a day job and performing music on the side when the legendary Lou Rawls and his entourage saw him play a small club in Oakland. When Rawls called Fields “the man with the golden voice,” Fields was inspired to launch a full-fledged recording career. Rawls once said the immortal words, “Soul is Truth,” and Fields fulfills that reality brilliantly on THE LOU RAWLS PROJECT - a sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics. In addition to the first single, the easy flowing and romantic “Let Me Be Good To You,” Fields lends his graceful caress to the balmy, gently swaying “Lady Love” (featuring producer Chris Camozzi on guitar), the smoky “Let’s Fall In Love All Over Again” and Rawls’ Philly SOUL trademark classic “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine.” It’s not braggin’ on himself, baby, to call Fields’ THE LOU RAWLS PROJECT a true masterpiece.~ Jonathan Widran
