Robert Cray Club Concert

When: Fri., June 5, 8 p.m. 2020
Price: $40-$50
Veteran bluesman Robert Cray and drummer/producer Steve Jordan (Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, John Mayer) have done a slew of albums together over the years going back to Take Your Shoes Off, which was released in 1999 and snagged a Grammy Award for the best contemporary blues album the following year. For nearly 20 years, Cray and Jordan have continued to collaborate, most recently on Cray’s 2014 album, In My Soul. When it came time to think about the next album, Jordan had an idea. He suggested that Cray should come to Memphis to record at Royal Studios, employing the services of the house band, the Hi Rhythm Section. What came out of the experience was something that Jordan termed as “a soul, rhythm and blues fantasy camp,” something that Cray himself couldn’t argue. The resulting album, Robert Cray and Hi Rhythm, came out in 2017, and Cray just released That's What I Heard earlier this year. (Matt Wardlaw)
