Raphael Saadiq: Instant Vintage

Bassist, singer and producer Raphael Saadiq adds another accomplishment to his notable career, his first solo recording, the multiple-Grammy-nominated "Instant Vintage." Saadiq, who’s played with Tone Toni Tone, Lucy Pearl and many others, plays old school soul and funk that others like to sample, but then adds modern beats and his own touch – all without losing the gritty heart that he says makes music work for him.
