In 2005, Scofield released the CD, "That's What I Say: John Scofield Plays Ray Charles" which featured an all-star lineup of featured artists. At the time, many artists were jumping on the Ray Charles tribute bandwagon, however this CD was considered to be the cream of the crop and garnered many awards and 5-star reviews.

This track, "What'd I Say," features the likes of Aaron Neville, Mavis Staples, Dr. John, Warren Haynes, John Mayer and Charles' saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman."
