Live From the Artists Den

Raphael Saadiq

Season 1, Episode 2 of 13

Raphael Saadiq has been a standard bearer for "old school" R&B since his early days as a member of the groundbreaking, multiplatinum group Tony! Toni! Tone! The multi-talented Oakland, California native has since become an award-winning producer of such artists as Joss Stone, Snoop Dogg, and John Legend, in addition to releasing his own acclaimed material. The Way I See It, nominated for three 2009 Grammy Awards, emulates the sound and flavor of 1960s soul music, delivering a masterful homage to a bygone era of feel-good rhythm and blues. Prolific producer and performer Raphael Saadiq warmed up a cold winter night in Boston with a nine-piece band performing the soulful songs from The Way I See It, Raphael's third solo album, which reflects his deep love for '60s rhythm and blues. The special show took place at the Harvard Club, in the Main Clubhouse on Commonwealth Avenue built in 1912, and showcased the rich blend of funky grooves and smooth balladry that is Saadiq's calling card.
