Old School. Very Cool.

I just listened to Leela James' "Live in New Orleans" EP and I've got to say this is the kind of soul/R&B that hearkens waaaay back in many ways. She's got a distinctive feel of Joan Armatrading in that husky voice and parts of this live set kick like some of the great pioneers of the form.
