Stone Rollin'

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: Raphael Saadiq

After his recent Grammy showing with Mick Jagger, R&B stalwart Saadiq has the cred to do as he pleases musically. Here he continues along the ’60s soul-inspired path that spawned 2008’s The Way I See It, pairing it with elements of blithe Stonesish rock. Horns soar as he charms on ”Movin’ Down the Line,” and a bluesy harmonica wails next to a funky guitar riff throughout the lady-lauding title track. Stone Rollin’ is old school for sure, spun fresh.
