From the liner notes ; Whitfield has delivered on the promise he showed
ten years ago, when
his chief inspiration, George Benson, helped bring him to national
attention. Equally versed in commercial soul-jazz and straight-ahead,
he has always moved effortlessly back and forth between subgenres. The
perfectly titled Raw leans hardcore towards the latter; it's a live
five song recording featuring Whitfield and his quartet of pianist
Robert Glasper, bassist Brandon Owens, and drummer Donald Edwards. The
date was recorded at the world famous Iridium on Manhattan's Upper West
Side and tiny Zinc bar on the Greenwich Village/Soho border.

From the liner notes; A new musical form is invented. With roots in
Mbalax, Funk and myriad
other influences, it is the first truly successful marriage
of African rhythm and American music. It is joyous, hypnotic and
transforming. You will jump up, laugh, cry, sing and dance!
