Now does this girl look like trouble to you? She is looking very much
like the smooth and sultry jazz crooner, but E.G. Kight is really
the burnin' red-hot blues mama. She is on a mission to deliver all
the fire in her soul via her music. Besides, who can judge a book by its cover?
"Trouble" is fiery blues-rock album filled with the soulful passionate
vocalisms of diva with a true purpose. A totally knock-your-socks-off
band that won't quit backs her, so her vocal style is a more than
a welcome partner for the music.
Now let's get down to business; this CD really kicks some ass! E.G.
is in marvelous form. Her spirit takes off bringing each and every song to another level.
The woman with the devil in her eyes starts things off with "Trouble
With A Capital "T." And with that, E.G. makes a clear opening statement
and sets the pace for the whole session. After telling everyone within
earshot that she is trouble, she begins to espouse her womanhood by
putting all eligible men on notice that "It Takes A Mighty Good Man"
to satisfy this ball of fire. I believe her. Then a real crankin'
blues-rock number called "A Woman Can Tell," with Koko Taylor, sets
the record straight once and for all that she is a woman to be reckoned
with. Believe it baby, she is going to be knockin' on your door with
some foot stompin' blues that will take your breath away. "The Rooster
Song" is definitely not about an animal, it's more about a man in
a lot a trouble for having a roll in the hay with the wrong woman.
She lets her unfaithful partner know in no uncertain terms how it
is and what will be. There is hell to pay, and there is no worst than
the scorn of a woman to endure. Yes, E.G. Kight can unravel a tale
and sing the blues with power and conviction.
This album really smokes right along. None other than the "Queen Of
The Blues" Koko Taylor inspires the lady to create some of the best
damned blues I have heard by a woman since Bonnie Raitt was at the
height of her success. Believe it people; this is one great album
that is just dripping in the emotion of the blues.
