The Robert Cray Band is touring for the first time since the 2020 release of his album, That’s What I Heard. Hear Dave Dave Michaels chat with the blues great.

Funky, cool and bad,” is how Cray describes the Grammy-nominated album, produced by longtime collaborator, Steve Jordan, who adds, “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.

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 and 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 Cray’s own songs.

The Robert Cray Band perform at Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, MASS., Saturday, March 4th at 8pm. Tickets HERE
