When JC Brooks opens up with his raspy, heavyhearted yowl he channels classic R&B icons without drifting into copycat nostalgia and finds the sweet spot that eludes so many other neo-soul prospectors. His talent is amplified via spare arrangements from backing band The Uptown Sound, whose raw electric guitar and bass thump deliver the tough-guy strut of Some Girls-era Rolling Stones. Even so, its Brooks’ gutsy delivery that stays at center stage, making “75 Years of Art Sex” a sultry introduction to Chicago’s rawest R&B upstarts.-- Nate Cavalieri
