Robert Cray Remembers Tony Joe White in New Song ’To Be With You’

American Songwriter (Read Full Article):
“In producer/drummer Steve Jordan though he found a partner perfectly suited to highlighting his strengths and nailing a pocket that pushes the five-time Grammy winner out of his comfort zone. This is their sixth, and arguably finest, collaboration…Few want Cray to radically alter the sound he has crafted over four decades of making roots soul and blues music. With the powerful That’s What I Heard, he and Jordan still find ways to broaden, expand and magnify that template without breaking it.”

“Cray [is] sounding better than ever…throughout That’s What I Heard, Cray’s voice is unstoppable. It knows no age and can hit the rafters with the most gut-wrenching testifying imaginable, then drag you through the gutter – or take you to church or the bedroom – with a menacing, sensual growl. That’s what I heard, anyway.”

Glide Magazine (Read Full Article): 
“Albums don’t get much more soulful than the Memphis sound the two [Cray and Steve Jordan] channeled on Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm, yet this continues in a similar vein, plunging deeper to include not just soul but some deep gospel too. Cray celebrates the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby “Blue” Bland, the Sensational Nightingales and more together with four new originals…And damn! He’s still doing it his way, like nobody else – a true original.”
