  • Guitarist John Scofield joins the wake for the legendary Ray Charles (who passed away in 2004) with 2005's THAT'S WHAT I SAY, a tribute album that mixes jazz with soul and traditional R&B. Scofield lays down stinging leads over funky rhythms on a wide variety of tunes, all of which were given definitive readings by Charles at some point.
  • While Scofield and his band (which includes drummer Steve Jordan, who also produced the album) smoke on the instrumentals, and Scofield takes the spotlight with a solo performance of "Georgia on My Mind," the record's real pleasure comes from its guest stars. Everyone from saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman (one of Charles's longtime band members) to singer/songwriter John Mayer lends a hand here, along with Mavis Staples, Aaron Neville, and Dr. John. "What'd I Say" is the album's centerpiece: the treatment bears a tasty groove and boasts rotating vocals from the guests. On this tune and elsewhere, the musicians are in top form, and their true love of Charles and his music shines through.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.74) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The emphasis on material from Charles' country crossover period allows Scofield to venture into more roots Americana stylings than usual."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[H]e's inventive enough and ever ready to toss new angles at the listener."
