Ray Jaurique & The Uptown BrothersMore than once the question has come up. “…Well what (or who) does it sound like?” The short answer might be “well… it sounds like Ray & The Brothers”. But when pressed to compare, it might be accurate to point to one part Sam Cooke, one part Albert King, a pinch of Albert Collins, one part Delbert Mc Clinton, a touch of Keb Mo’, some Van Morrison with a little Holland- Dozier- Holland thrown in.More information at Ray Jaurique & The Uptown Brothers website
