Sam Gendel's COOKUP--a new album comprising interpretations of R&B and
soul hits originally released between 1992 and 2004--is due February 24,
2023, via Nonesuch Records. As with his 2020 Nonesuch debut, Satin Doll,
Gendel recorded COOKUP in his native California with his friends and
collaborators Gabe Noel and Philippe Melanson; the trio again adopts an
approach of simultaneous synchronized sonic construction/deconstruction
of the album's source material, which this time includes songs by
Ginuwine, 112, Aaliyah, All-4-One, Soul 4 Real, Beyoncé, Joe, Erykah
Badu, Mario, SWV, and Boyz II Men.
"COOKUP marks another chance to convene with my good friends Phil
Melanson and Gabe Noel," says Gendel. "For this occasion we hovered over
a particular flavor: jams that we grew up with. We sculpted in sound our
collective memories of this music."
...OUT 24 FEBRUARY 2023!
