Soul Investigators for their third record, Keep Reachin’ Up, they back NYC native Nicole Willis, a soul singer with a bright yet pale voice whose past credits include work with Curtis Mayfield and the Brand New Heavies, as well as a brief stint with dance floor mavens Dee-Lite. Keep Reachin’ Up happens to be Willis’s third full-length as well, and her first to fall under the banner of the retro soul movement spearheaded by the likes of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse, and the Quantic Soul Orchestra. Willis and the Soul Investigators (along with multi-instrumentalist Jimi Tenor, who happens to be Willis’s husband) favor the echo and throb of the classic Motown sound, most notably on the urgent “If This Ain’t Love (Don’t Know What Is)”, with its constantly snapping snare drum, and “My Four Leaf Clover”, which parades along with the bounce and grandeur of the Supremes. Like Jones’s album Naturally, Keep Reachin’ Up sounds like it could have been recovered from a long-lost reel of studio tape from some now-defunct studio in the American South.
