A new album of such power and beauty it affirms, once again, why Joe Cocker has a special place in American music.
Stingray is Joe Cocker's seventh and arguably his best album.
Recorded in Jamaica with the aid of crack producer Rob Fraboni, and a tightly sprung soul band, Stingray moves with an understated forcefulness that simultaneously generates both moonlit loveliness and churning dramatic tension.
Cocker's entire range of vocal expression - from his fragile whisper to his desperate scream - comes across with breathtaking urgency.
Joe Cocker has reached another artistic pinnacle with more than a little help from his friends.
