Robin McKelle’s passion for classic American R&B, the raw stuff that poured forth from Stax and Atlantic, was first exercised two years ago. Led by bassist and co-producer Derek Nievergelt, the sextet scales Spector-dense arrangements that dazzlingly recall everyone from Wilson Pickett and Sam and Dave to Booker T. Jones and Archie Bell. Remarkably, McKelle and the boys—including her personal Tower of Power: trumpeter Scott Aruda, saxophonist Mike Turner and trombonist Clayton DeWalt—fully capture the groove while remaining nostalgia-free. The two tracks here from her album “Soul Flower” are original tunes, both distinctly evocative of the era without ever sounding ersatz. “Fairytale Ending” has been massive this year on the UK soul scene and the sweet harmony of “Love’s Work” finds Robin swapping lines with man of the moment, Gregory Porter.
