“Cray is one of those rare trinities in music: an excellent musician who is also an excellent vocalist who is also an excellent songwriter.”—Village Voice

Robert Cray is easily on the short list of greatest electric blues guitar players. With roots in the vein of Albert Collins, Cray gives new voice to the instrument. Coming out of the Pacific Northwest with the Robert Cray Band in 1974, Cray’s smoky croon and callus-splitting solos proliferated down the coastal roadhouses and onto stages shared with Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones. The five-time Grammy-winner’s recent collaboration with Memphis soul legends Hi Rhythm, recorded at the famed Royal Studios, epitomizes Cray’s mastery at traversing the bridges from blues to soul and R&B. His presence at this year’s festival reminds us generously of jazz’s bloodline to the blues.
