It’s nice to watch an artist rise in popularity. Kay Kay Greenwade has done very well with her recent CDs. I’ve been fortunate to have reviewed her 2000 album featuring Abner Burnett and the 2002 Texas Justice
issue. The Texas based singer formed her first band in 1998.
The Texas Justice
album partnered Kay Kay with guitarist / singer Johnny Rawls. Frankly, it was a great record! The newest release finds Greenwade in the company of longtime writing collaborator and bassist, Bob Trenchard. The pair penned most of the songs on this album. Big Bad Girl
exposes her audience to Kay Kay’s many moods from Cheater
to the bitter Enron Field
. The singer’s powerful and sizzling voice is well suited to her equally hot material.
It’s nice to see saxman, Andy Roman on his third session with Greenwade. While it isn’t unusual to find a sax player who excels on alto and baritone, it’s a rarity to find one who also tackles soprano and tenor. Roman does it very well. Guitarist, Steve Lott is impressive in his first recording with The Rays. He and Kay Kay blend perfectly. Keyboardist, Dan Ferguson joined the Greenwade / Trenchard team to write Stop The Killing
. The song will really make you think. It’s a gem!
This is a blues album with wide appeal.
