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.

Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm Robert Cray. Listen on Apple Music. Classic soul with the guitarist backed by the Hi Records hit squad. See All. Strong Persuader.

Robert Cray teamed up with Hi Rhythm for his self-titled album, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm out now on Jay-Vee Records. The album is nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album by the Grammy Awards. Over the last 30-plus years, Cray has successfully blurred the lines of blues, soul, and R&B and is considered one of the best contemporary bluesmen

Aspen Colorado by Tony Joe White (1969). You Must Believe in Yourself by Robert Cray and Hi Rhythm. You Must Believe in Yourself by Johnny Copeland (1971).

Supported by the Hi Rhythm Section he sounds livelier and grittier than he has in years, and that passion serves as a nice counterpoint to the smooth grooves on Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm.

Robert Cray teams up with Memphis's Hi Rhythm for a supergroup album with no pretensions and all soul. Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm. I once read somewhere that it's easy to take a musician like Robert Cray for granted. Of course, the more I thought about it, the more I realized this was true. Trends come and go, music sales spike and fall, but Cray has been cranking out consistently good soul/R&B music on a regular basis since he first snagged our attention in the mid-'80s

For the Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm album, the Blues Hall of Famer traveled to Memphis with his friend, renowned Grammy Award winning producer Steve Jordan, to make a classic soul album with Hi Rhythm, the band that helped create that sound. The album opens with a driving, soulful version of Bill Withers' "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh" that sounds as if it was originally from an old Hi Rhythm recording.
