Nearly six years ago, long-time record producer and performer Raphael Saadiq released his solo debut, Instant Vintage. Similarly to his work with Tony! Toni! Toné! and Lucy Pearl, the project received rave reviews and earned the Oakland native five Grammy nominations. Since then, Saadiq has spent time working behind the scenes with A-list artists like Joss Stone, Snoop Dogg and Q-Tip, among others.

On September 16, Saadiq will release his third studio album, The Way I See It, courtesy of Columbia Records and his independent label, Pookie Entertainment. Led by the Temptations-influenced single, Love That Girl, the album’s inspiration was drawn from the soulful atmosphere and organic sound of tropical vacation spots like Costa Rica and the Bahamas. Known to fully immerse himself in his work, the multi-talented musician is solely responsible for writing, producing, arranging and performing the entire project. [DJBooth.net interviewed Raphael]

A last minute announcement revealed that Raphael Saadiq was playing the free show at South Street Seaport on Friday (Labor Day Weekend-eve). More pics from Raphael’s set below…
