Though it took until 2011 for this Chicago soul outfit to release its debut full-length, J.C. Brooks & The Uptown Sound are hardly newcomers to the city’s flourishing retro-soul scene. As the backing band for the Numero Group’s Eccentric Soul Revue, The Uptown Sound honed its chops accompanying local legends like Syl Johnson and The Notations, and the group gained national exposure with a propulsive, Stax-inflected interpretation of Wilco’s “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.” While that retrofitted re-imagining of a contemporary classic is included on J.C. Brooks & The Uptown Sounds’ Bloodshot debut, Want More, it’s not even the most ear-catching performance on offer. That honor goes to “Awake”: a soul-stirring ballad that borrows the stately grandeur of Curtis Mayfield’s civil rights anthems to comment on the contemporary political scene. Equally remarkable is the group’s note-for-note cover of The Kaldirons' “To Love Someone (That Don’t Love You),” which gives some much-deserved shine to a previously neglected soul masterpiece.
