Scrape (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jan 20, 2004; Lead Performance: Ivan Neville

There's been much talk about the neo-soul movement these past few years, but journeyman singer-guitarist -- keyboard player Neville has seldom been mentioned. More's the pity, because the dude should rightfully be hailed as one of the genre's prime movers. Maybe ''Scrape,'' a potent blend of funky foot stompers and organically crafted R&B ballads, will set the record straight. Listen carefully and you may even hear a couple of Neville's heavy friends (and ex-employers) in the mix -- namely Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards.
