The incendiary soul/jazz/funk of The Royal Sessions is a hard-hitting and authentic modern take on Memphis’ original soul-stew sound – a mixture of original instrumental and vocal features that fuse R&B fundamentals with elements of modern hip-hop. An all-star section of Stax sidemen – drummer Willie Hall (The Bar-Kays, the Blues Brothers), and Charles “Skip” Pitts (Isaac Hayes) on wah-wah guitar – joins garage rock prodigy Scott Bomar (Impala) on bass to lay down deep funk grooves for a mighty horn section consisting of Memphis’ finest young players. It’s much more than an homage: it’s the sound of Memphis now– familiar, fresh, and unquestionably fantastic.
