@RayRaySaadiq x @KCRW #WhoShotRocknRoll Concert

The last in the series of KCRW’s “Who Shot Rock n Roll” concerts featured Raphael Saadiq and Band of Skulls celebrating songs from “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan”.  Although it was a short performance by one of my favorite artist, I was able to snap a few pictures and get some footage of the evenings adventure with Raphael and his band. We didn’t stay for Band of Skulls but it was still a great evening. The people were all in sync with one another, the weather was perfect, and the location was appropriately thought-out…Enjoy.

If you get a chance, make sure to check out the actual exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography

Tried to upload a few videos for you to see the dance battle between Saadiq and his band members as well as Charles taking us to CHURCH…I have to UP grade to do that, so until then hope you enjoyed the pictures.

@rayraysaadiq Says Turn Up Your RADIO…

I was so excited when I read the press release today about Raphael Saadiq releasing another album!! I truly believe he is one of the music industry’s most talented, relevant, but underrated artist out.  Maybe I’m just biased because I was lucky enough to work with Saadiq on the Lucy Pearl and Instant Vintage albums back in the day. Both, classic albums which were heavily slept on but that hasn’t and won’t stop Lil Ray Ray. He’s droppin’ his 5th studio album, Stone Rollin’ 3/22/11 and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy but until then, y’all check out the video for his new single “Radio” here.

Check out my “Captured on Film” gallery for pix of Mr. Saadiq performing live at the Wiltern ’09.
