Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash make up Cool Uncle, which is a super appropriate band name for two guys who’re known for being some of the movers and shakers of years past. As Chris pointed out in an earlier post, Caldwell is an R&B vet often sampled by J. Dilla, and Splash is a Grammy-nominated producer who’s worked with Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, and Jennifer Hudson, among others. The duo’s self-titled album is due out next week, and features guest appearances from Jessie Ware and Mayer Hawthorne as well as a duet between Deniece Williams and Eric Biddines. Stream the album in full a week premature of its release below.
Cool Uncle is out 11/13 on Fresh Young Minds.
