For thirty-plus years Robert Cray has laid down track after track of good-time, uptown, low-down blues. He’s won five Grammys and been nominated an astounding 13 times. What he hasn’t done is work this magic on a full-length concert CD, where the fires that drive him onstage burn on disc as well.
Robert Cray is one of a precious few young (at this stage, that translates to under 50 years of age) blues artists with the talent and vision to successfully usher the idiom into the 21st century without resorting either to slavish imitation or simply playing rock while passing it off as blues. Just as importantly, his immensely popular records helped immeasurably to jump-start the contemporary blues boom that still holds sway to this day. Blessed with a soulful voice that sometimes recalls '60s-great O.V. Wright and a concise lead guitar approach that never wastes notes, Cray's rise to international fame was indeed a heartwarming one.
