(Kid Logic) Robert Cray has announced that he will be releasing his new album "Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm" in Spring of next year under a new deal that he just inked with Jay-Vee Records.

"The signing of Robert Cray to Jay-Vee Records is a milestone for Meegan and me," says Jordan. "Robert is one of the greatest artists of this generation. To have an opportunity to work with him again, and to have him on our label, is a dream come true."

Recorded at Willie Mitchell's Royal Studios in Memphis, the album features a backing band of Jordan and the legendary Hi Rhythm: Charles Hodges (organ, piano), Leroy Hodges (bass) and Archie "Hubby" Turner (keyboards) and was produced by Jordan.

"Playing with Charles, Leroy and Hubby - the same cats who played on all the Al Green, Ann Peebles, O.V. Wright and Syl Johnson albums on Hi Records - was a thrill beyond. Robert and I were grinning from ear to ear."
