Editorial Reviews

With Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, Eddie Taylor Jr. , Shun Kikuta, Roosevelt Purifoy, Greg McDaniel and Pookie Styx. The debut CD by the daughter of legendary Eddie Taylor (Jimmy Reed rhythm guitarist), who had a hit for VeeJay with the song Bad Boy in 1955. Demetria revisits the song here as a tribute to her late father. But Demetria is not just riding pops' coattails. Even though she just turned 38, Demetria won the B. L. U. E. S. on Halsted Blues Diva Contest 2010, has already performed three times at the Chicago Blues Festival and guested on two Eddie Taylor CDs. 11 songs including the rousing duet with Big Time Sarah on Wang Dang Doodle.

First I have to comment on the cover of this release. I am so used to all of the fancy covers on all cd's that this one kinda caught me off guard. It is very remeinicent of the covers of old soul albums old the 60's. I don't know if it is intentional or coincidental but it's what's inside that counts. And after listening to the release, I think the cover is respectful.

I had not been earlier exposed to Demetria or knew of her through her father, the great Eddie Taylor. Now with all this against her, I am listening to the cd and i got to tell you I am pleasantly surprised.

The release sounds authentic and not a clone of everyone who came before her. She has a grindy blues voice and the band is tight. The recording isn't just Demetria singing but there is a chance for the band including Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Eddie Taylor jr., Shun Kinkuta, Roosevelt Purifoy, Greg McDaniel, Pookie Styx and Luke Pytel to stretch out "Chicago style". Of the new cd's I've hear recently this one hits the Chicago blues square on the head beginning to end...and I say everyone should listen to it.

This album was a pleasant surprise! I am a huge Koko Taylor Fan, and whenever I hear that someone is Kokoesk, I cringe, because I am usually disappointed. Not this time. She isn't a copy; she has her own raw edginess that you can't help but respect. I was able to catch her live a couple months ago, and it was a fantastic show, too!

Blues society is always enthusiastic when children of well-known Blues artists chase careers in Blues, when Blues dilates in generations. So is the case with Demetria Taylor, daughter of Chicago Blues legend, Eddie Taylor, Sr.

Her debut album, released on Delmark in 2011, Bad Girl, is a mix of Chicago Blues classics and it's done on purpose. Even for the offspring of acclaimed Blues institution it would be difficult to enter and establish herself on too competitive Chicago Blues scene without taking as a core of the album what constitutes that music. Thus the classics of Windy City Blues like Willie Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Woman" (song with slightly different lyrics from Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Man"), "Wang Dang Doodle", and "Little Red Rooster", Luther Dixon's "Big Boss Man", and Luther Allison's "Cherry Red Wine".

Named songs became trademarks of the Queen of the Blues influence of whom on young Taylor is heard both performance and sound-wise with unmistakable Chicago Blues approach on songs like "I'm A Woman / Hoochie Coohie Woman", "Wang Dang Doodle", "Big Boss Man" and "Little Red Rooster".

From vocal point of view, Demetria prefers Koko Taylor-like approach applying gritty, cutting edge although not enough hoarsen and powerful voice deficit of which is exhausted through much sticking to Chicago Blues.

Promising debut.

Personnel: Demetria Taylor (vocals); Eddie Taylor, Jr. (guitar); Shun Kikuta (guitar); Roosevelt Purifoy (piano, organ); Pookie Styx (drums).

I couldn't even look at this album without shoving my hands into my pockets, stepping back and viewing it from a distance ... perhaps thinking it'll catch fire, instantly combusting right before my eyes, wondering where this woman got the nerve to think she could cover these songs, especially opening with Koko Taylor's classic "I'm A Woman," which breathlessly surges into "Hoochie Coochie Woman." Then it all came back to me like the hot fist at the end of wet kiss, Demetria Taylor is the daughter of blues legend Eddie Taylor, and has grown up having more blues artists as Aunts, Uncles, and God Parents, than most of us would see in concert in a lifetime.

Bad Girl rolls on with a casual relaxed atmosphere, Demetria belting out these tunes with raw grit and honesty, playing effortlessly with the musicians, and conjuring up images of Janis Joplin when she sounded like she was having fun instead of something to prove. But therein lies the weakness for so many blues women, they're forever being compared to their historical roots, though if an artist is gonna dive into the type of historical material found here, she'd better be standing on solid ground ... and she is, possessing a voice that's only going to age with power and grace.
