2013-04-08Singer/songwriter, Lisa Cee, has been part of the west coast blues scene for quite some time. However, Lisa really earned her stripes leading the house band since 2008 for the Gibson Guitar Lodge at the Sundance Film Festival. There, she performed with many prolific musicians, such as Ray Manzarek, Sting, John Legend and Billy Gibbons. My Turn is Lisa Cee's debut. It opens strong with a cover of the 1960's soul tune "What Good Am I", bluesing it up admirably. The rest of the disc is mostly originals, with Lisa on vocals and her band doing a respectable job on guitar, bass, and drums. Guest artists add their two cents on harmonica, keys, and saxophone. The funky "Fire", the burner "Good-Bye Baby", and "Evil Mind" with its gospel backing vocals are all worth a listen. "Lost You" is a decent slow burner and the sax replacing the electric guitar on "White Rabbit" makes it one of the most interesting covers of that particular song I've heard. Rebecca Ruth
