What To Do? Wednesday's Pick: Raphael Saadiq

Categories: Music, What to Do


Raphael Saadiq @ The Fox

Oakland native Raphael Saadiq first came to national prominence with his '80s R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! He found subsequent success as a Grammy-winning solo artist and producer of R&B hits, including D'Angelo's flesh-baring "(Untitled) How Does It Feel." Though he has always been considered an old soul in a fresh body with his unique, nimble vocal tone, Saadiq's most recent album, The Way I See It, draws a heavy influence from such Motown greats as the Temptations, Gladys Knight, and Stevie Wonder, who even plays harmonica for "Never Give You Up." Saadiq plays The Fox Theater in Oakland tonight (7:30 p.m., $39.50).
