Best R&B 

Bad News Blues Band

A pair of rousing saxes, a straight-up Chicago-style bluesman, a sweetly alluring singer, and male-female back-up singers ensure Bad News Blues Band has depth, warmth and range. Whether covering blues-y radio-rock standards like "Lay Down Sally" or R&B originals like "One More I Gotta Go," the players prove themselves to be great listeners, playing with restraint and heart, all in greater service to the music. It's what allows the humanity to come through. The music feels vivid and earned, like any good music born in the American south.
