      Samuel James & Kevin So

      Six feet tall, wearing either a dapper vest and tie or just a tank-top and suspenders accessorized with

      a pork-pie hat and aviator shades, hunched over his acoustic guitar and keeping rhythm with his tapping shoes, Samuel James sure cuts an image of the true, red-blooded bluesman when he’s performing onstage. In fact, you might even think he’s not performing at all, like maybe this cat drinks his coffee and eats his morning eggs with that six-string still strapped across his back. But James, who sports jeans and sneakers like the rest of us when he’s offstage, is really a showman at heart. “I’ve always loved to tell stories,” he says. Indeed, James’s third album, For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen, plays all of six seconds before bucking an expectation or two. After letting his slide guitar weep a few chords, James launches into the tale of “Bigger, Blacker Ben,” who wakes up one night to find a burning cross on his lawn and a gang of white-hooded husbands: “We hear you been with white women, behind closed doors/ Ben gave ’em a wink and a smile and said, Just yours and yours and yours and yours…”
