Thats What I Heard (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
"Funky, cool and bad," is how Robert Cray describes his latest album, That's What I Heard.
"I thought if we could get this thing that Sam Cooke used to have, the kind of sound that early Sam Cooke records had, that we could pull this off," says producer Steve Jordan.
Over the past four decades, Cray has created a sound that rises from American roots, blues, soul and R&B, with five Grammy wins, 20 acclaimed studio albums and a bundle of live albums that punctuate the Blues Hall of Famer's career. On That's What I Heard, Robert celebrates the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby "Blue" Bland, The Sensational Nightingales and more, alongside four newly written songs.
Cray and Jordan go way back, having met during the making of the Chuck Berry documentary Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, in 1987. They started working together in 1999, when Jordan produced the Grammy-winning Take Your Shoes Off, and the recent Grammy-nominated LP, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm.
That's What I Heard is their sixth album. "Once you start working with Steve, it's kind of hard to get away from him," said Robert.
