Pedal-steel virtuoso Robert Randolph returns along with his new album, Were given Soul. The album reaffirms that Randolph and his Circle of relatives Band have actually evolved into one of the crucial exciting and innovative outfits in latest music. Were given Soul takes stock of Randolph’s past as a church musician as it pushes the band forward into new places. There’s no shortage of originality at the album with songs that run the gamut from gospel numbers to deep, funky grooves to incendiary rock-and-soul jams. The hauntingly exquisite “Heaven’s Calling” features Randolph on solo steel whilst guest vocalists Darius Rucker and Anthony Hamilton lend their golden voices to “Love Do What It Do” and “She Were given Soul” respectively. “I Thank You,” the 60s Sam & Dave R&B smash, is completely re-imagined within the hands of the Circle of relatives Band and Snarky Puppy’s very on Cory Henry.
