About the Album

Sam Gendel’s version of 112’s “Anywhere,” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello on vocals, is the first taste from COOKUP—a new album comprising interpretations of R&B and soul hits originally released between 1992 and 2004—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.
