NPR is streaming the full-length Cool Uncle (Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash) album and you can listen to all 15-songs and hear their 1978 meets 2015 groove. The collaboration is the result of Caldwell’s wife reaching out to Splash via social media after she heard that he wanted to work with her husband. Cool Uncle is a continuation of Caldwell’s classic style with modern additions that compliment his sound instead of drowning him in an attempt to mimic contemporary artists.
Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash preview another song from their Cool Uncle project and it’s a romantic R&B slow jam called “Game Over” featuring Mayer Hawthorne. The album comes out next week (November 13th) and you can read the full tracklisting below.
Producer Jack Splash and ’70’s soul singer Bobby Caldwell are the cross-generational Cool Uncle. “Breaking Up” is their musical take on the ending of a relationship with guest appearances from ’80’s soul/pop icon Deniece Williams and hip-hop newcomer Eric Biddines. Their self-titled album comes out November 13th and you can also pre-order it from iTunes.
