British soul singer James Hunter has assembled the James Hunter Six for his first album in five years, Minute by Minute, produced by Daptone Records co-founder Gabriel Roth. With a collaboration like that you can expect plenty of old school R&B cuts like this title track, a brassy, lovelorn number that Hunter injects with a bit of optimism singing, "There's no need to check my watch / Cause time is all I got / till I get to you!"

"Working with Gabe Roth was a revelation," said Hunter. "Not only does he have an excellent ear for what works and what doesn't, and almost limitless patience (which is almost as much as is required when recording us) he is also possibly the most sarcastic person we have ever worked with (a big plus) which puts the rest of us in first to sixth place. It was like working with Groucho Marx. He even looks a bit like him."
