JOHN SCOFIELD THAT'S WHAT I SAY: JOHN SCOFIELD PLAYS THE MUSIC OF RAY CHARLES reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Rokukai
One of the best Ray Charles tribute albums that flooded the market following his death, "That's What I Say: John Scofield Plays the Music of Ray Charles" fits nicely into John Scofield's eclectic discography. Jazz fans will find plenty to like, and Charles fans will be delighted as Scofield and his all-star crew breathe new life into 13 Ray favorites (not all Ray originals). The set starts with a bang, as "Busted" flies through the speakers and reminds every listener what a great song it is.

Along the way, you get to hear standards like "Hit the Road Jack" "Georgia on My Mind" "You Don't Know Me" and "What'd I Say". Then there's the songs you won't hear on many Charles compilations--"Unchain My Heart" "Cryin' Time" and "Talkin' 'bout You".

True heavyweights deliver the vocals. Art Neville, John Mayer, Mavis Staples, Dr. John. My only qualm--why no country star? Hell, this record would be awesome if Merle Haggard sang "Cryin' Time" or Junior Brown sang and played his axe on "Busted".

At any rate, it's great to hear a jazzer interpret C&W material, and Scofield churns out another winner with this one.
