Holler, Colorado Blues Society

April-May 2005

“If you ever wondered where mystical bluesman Otis Taylor gets much of his dark, brooking, mysterious textures, look no further than departed sideman/guitarist Eddie Turner. He’s been blues’ best-kept secret for some time now, providing the electrifying voice of Taylor’s mounting intensity. Turner’s edgy contributions spliced with ethereal background vocals and séance-inducing atmosphere are most evident of “Rise,” the opening song that connects a delta sensibility to a futuristic, cosmic frontier. After that, Turner’s multi-faceted personality subdues itself briefly on the creamy “Ask Myself Why,” the string-snappin’ “The River” and Jimi Hendrix’s surreal “The Wind Cries Mary” before roaring back to life on “It’s Me” with “Devil Boy” Turner in blistering form. Even given the classic blues vibe of “Play It Cool,” Turner consistently envelops his crafty material with a hip, urban sensibility with drum loops, arrhythmic beats and cool effects seeping in everywhere. But it’s not just his searing guitar work (“Privileged in Life”) that’s worth taking note of – “Sin,” a dubbed vocal spiritual testimony, brims with creativity with only minimal guitar support. Produced by former Taylor bassman Kenny Passarelli, Turner’s debut is a head-turning, neck-snapping one that’s almost frightening when contemplating what could come next.”
