A founding member of Tony! Toni! Tone! and the short-lived Lucy Pearl project, Raphael Saadiq has been lacing listeners with his smooth crooning since the late 1980s. Instant Vintage is his first solo LP, and it oozes with neo-soul niceness. Angie Stone, D'Angelo and T-Boz appear on the album, which has earned Saadiq five Grammy nominations.
