Cray performs a mix of originals and Hi-associated covers
Steve Jordan is proud to announce the signing of Robert Cray to Jay-Vee Records, the label he and Meegan Voss founded in 2010. Produced by Jordan, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm will be released in Spring, 2017.
"The signing of Robert Cray to Jay-Vee Records is a milestone for Meegan and me," says Jordan, who first worked with Cray in 1996 on the Grammy winning album, Take Your Shoes Off. "Robert is one of the greatest artists of this generation. To have an opportunity to work with him again, and to have him on our label, is a dream come true."
Recorded at Willie Mitchell's Royal Studios in Memphis, the album features a backing band of Jordan and the legendary Hi Rhythm section: Charles Hodges (organ, piano), Leroy Hodges (bass) and Archie "Hubby" Turner (keyboards).
"Playing with Charles, Leroy and Hubby - the same cats who played on all the Al Green, Ann Peebles, O.V. Wright and Syl Johnson albums on Hi Records - was a thrill beyond. Robert and I were grinning from ear to ear."
