Minute By Minute by The James Hunter Six

Minute by Minute is British soul man James Hunter’s first record since 2008’s fantastic The Hard Way. It’s also his first to be recorded in America. In a very astute move, Hunter has chosen Daptone main man Gabriel Roth (aka Bosco Mann) as his producer, and the results are scintillating.

Hunter has been blessed with an incredible set of pipes and a blistering guitar sound, rooted in deep soul and classic 50s R’n’B. Completely authentic and never mere pastiche, Hunter, his six and Roth have delivered another stone cold modern soul master-class.
