Raphael Saadiq

[pullquote quote=”I’ve been rolling dice my entire career, taking risk my whole life, and still doing so. I’m Stone Rollin’ once again.” credit=”Raphael Saadiq”] [lastfm]Raphael Saadiq[/lastfm] is a true talent and teacher, giving you a history lesson with Stone Rollin’. On this fifth album, the GRAMMY-winner takes you on a journey through the different eras of soul music. Saadiq, who cut his teeth on tour with [lastfm]Prince[/lastfm] has since worked with everyone from [lastfm]Mick Jagger[/lastfm] to [lastfm]Jay Z[/lastfm].

The album’s opener, “Heart Attack,” lays down the high-energy groove of [lastfm]Sly & The Family Stone[/lastfm] while “Radio” emulates the early R&B roots of Rock & Roll. Further along in the record, Saadiq tips his cap to [lastfm]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm], [lastfm]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm], [lastfm]Curtis Mayfield[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Ray Charles[/lastfm] — among others.

This album nails the classic Motown sound, but that’s not to say he’s stuck in the past. On “Day Dreams” Raphael marries a [lastfm]Bo Diddley[/lastfm] shuffle with the steel guitar of [lastfm]Robert Randolph[/lastfm], who he calls out by name.


[pullquote quote=”It’s a bluesy song about REALLYcurvy women.” credit=”Raphael Saadiq on Stone Rollin'”]

Saadiq has always been much more than a throwback artist. Stone Rollin‘s title track is a straight-up jam. The vision behind the groove praises the assets of a big, voluptuous woman. What’s not to love?
