ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If Jimmy Buffet grew up in Detroit, it would sound like this. Rays new album “I’M FREE” equals and surpasses his earlier hits. Produced, composed, arranged and sung by Parker, “I’M FREE” showcases a new found beginning for this exceptional artist and embraces a variety of musical styles including Urban, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Reggae. “This album represents a lot more than just a song or a project,” says Ray. For the first time in many years I feel free to express myself the way I used to when I first started!”

Utilizing the cream of L.A.’s studio A team along with Ray himself on both acoustic and electric guitar, “I’M FREE” exhibits a new maturity for the man who first gained fame writing and recording youth based love songs, both with his band RAYDIO (“You Can’T Change That”) and later as a solo artist (“Ghostbusters”). With more adult themes to sing about, Ray wrote every song on the album with the exception of the David Gates/Bread hit “Guitar Man.” From the beautiful acoustic guitar opening on “Mexico” to the closing instrumental “Gibson’s Theme,” Parker takes the listener on a heartfelt journey that is both musically stunning and lyrically moving. You definately have to buy this one!

Frankie Marc Anthony


Being a longtime fan and promoter of Ray Parker Jr., I have to say that this is amongst the best releases so far this year and just might be Ray's best effort yet. Having to wait 15 years between recordings is a long time, but the result was well worth it. Every track is outstanding and could easily be a single for AC or Urban AC radio formats as well as AAA & Smooth Jazz. Also being a loyal David Gates follower, Ray's version of "The Guitar man" stays true to he original version while adding just enough of Ray's influence to make it one of his songs.
He has certainly come a long way from "Ghostbusters", an 80's staple.

il piu'grande del ritmo black e' tornato dopo 15 anni un po' troppi per uno come RAY.In questo nuovo lavoro si nota una evoluzione di suoni souljazz e caldi a parte la traccia I'M FREE dedita alla tradizione di SOUD MADE IN DETROIT.Un lavoro da ascoltare molto attentamente,come sempre RAY PARKER JR. regala classe ed emozioni in ogni traccia con la sua voce e il suono della sua chittarra.Speriamo per il prossimo lavoro di non aspettare altri 15 anni.

I HAVE GROWN UP WITH RAY'S MUSIC. AND I SEE LIKE ME IT HAS GOTTEN BETTER WITH TIME. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT, BUT "Hey Ray not so long next time". Brother getting older need a parker fix every year. Thanks and God bless you, you are the man.

Welcome Back Ray!!!
Ray Parker Jr truly is free on his latest release. Free to cross musical boundaries and talk about subjects in a very direct way. It has the smooth jazz feel represented in Mismaloya Beach & Gibson's Theme (which I would personally like to hear more of). 70's rock on The Book, MOR on Glass of Wine & Mexico and others. Parker has toung firmly in cheek on many selection which bring a smile even though they talk about difficult subjects. All in all is is a welcome return and did I mention that a full smooth jazz album would be great???
