We're just a few weeks away from the long-awaited release of keyboardist Nigel Hall's debut studio album, Ladies & Gentlemen… Nigel Hall. The LP is due out in digital format November 13 and vinyl November 27 via Feel Music with a pre-order available now through Pledge Music and iTunes. Today, we're excited to premiere a track off the Eric Krasno-produced album.
The keyboardist burst onto the scene with his always-impressive, uplifting performances with Lettuce. He has gone on to collaborate with Warren Haynes, Ledisi, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge, Roosevelt Collier, the Soul Rebels and many others. Nigel is a human musical encyclopedia of soul music, so it speaks highly of Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain" that the 1974 hit is one of just ten songs the keyboardist chose to record for his solo debut. Hall shows off multi-octave range on his silky smooth vocal delivery of "I Can't Stand The Rain" over a thumping, bass- heavy and horn-infused arrangement of the song.
