Editorial Reviews

Review

Use Me is recommended for listeners who enjoy the funky yet smooth sounds of contemporary "light" jazz. -- http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=14860

Product Description

Jazz saxophonist, composer and arranger Amy Lee has been on the national/international music scene since 1990. Her newly released solo CD titled USE ME (PPM 2004) marks her 2nd solo album and contains 7 original compositions and 3 covers including Bill Withers' "Use Me" as well as Stevie Wonder's "Too Shy To Say". USE ME is filled with feel-good songs and soulful soloing that is unique to today's "Smooth Jazz" monotony. That's because Amy's years playing with Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers and Jimmy Buffett have brought to her palette a distinctive blend of jazz, funk and storytelling which is undeniably weaved into her music and playing. Producer/engineer Steve Schwartzberg also brings his pop/R&B skills to the project having worked with such artists as Toni Braxton, TLC, and Boyz II Men. The accomplished musicians backing Amy on USE ME have recorded with hundreds of artists including Earth, Wind & Fire, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, David ! Sanborn, Kenny G, the Temptations, Quincy Jones, George Benson, David Bowie and Stevie Wonder. The resulting instrumental jazz-pop-soul mix on USE ME is incredibly fresh and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars a note for evanescence fans July 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
i was really confused until i found a review on her other cd; this amy lee isn't from evanescence - just to spare you a purchase you may not want. sorry fans of this solo artist - please know i'm not insulting this amy lee; i just want to clear up some confusement. thanx.

ps-i rated it 5 star because i haven't heard it and don't want to assume about music i haven't heard - please know my rating isn't valid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sax Star is Born! August 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Amy Lee goes above and beyond the label of "Smooth Jazz" with this CD - From the opening drum groove of "Use Me", I was hooked! With Sonny Emory on drums, how could she go wrong? Amy lays down the funk HARD on this tune before switching it up to the smooth "Across the Water", and the feel-good pop of "Coming Home". Then she blows me away with some mysterious reggae on "In the Sun". This is followed by the sexy Brazilian feel of "Traz Da Lua" with the sweet vocals of Alice Genereaux and some stunning flute work by Amy.

This CD goes on and on with high-quality grooves and surprises. If you only know Amy from her work with jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band, then you owe it to yourself to check out what she can really do! In my opinion, she is on the same level as Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, Kenny G, and all those other sax dudes. I thought her first CD was quite good, but this one is absolutely stunning!!

3.0 out of 5 stars thank you Amy Lee fans!! Amazon needs to know!! February 24, 2007
By Gurn B.
Format:Audio CD
Thank you, to all you fans for clearing up the fact the this isn't the Amy Lee from Ev!

I was ready to buy it because I love her voice. However, someone needs

explain this to Amazon, too!! This cd keeps coming up in similar searches for Evanscence.

It's sad that this Amy Lee has to hear so much about the other, but I wish her luck, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Many Uses of "Use Me." April 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
In school, particularly since I was a musical maladroit myself, I was intimidated by the saxophone. As one who never mastered the recorder(!), seeing fellow students manhandling that giant "J" and actually coaxing sounds resembling music from it amazed me. Anyway, it didn't matter, because it was a jazz-instrument - you know, that weird type of music of the black-beret crowd - or worse, that 50's-type "rock 'n' roll" we children of the 60's & 70's never took seriously. I never thought much about the saxophone.

Then, about 1973 or `74, two things happened for me and my buddies in high school: a saxophone showed up in Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon - instant credibility - and John Anthony Helliwell, a saxophone-player (among other things), was the front man for Supertramp. The saxophone suddenly rocked; it was now our kind of cool.

And "our kind of cool" is what Amy Lee gives us in her second CD, Use Me. Cool, yes, but with a radiant heat sneaking through it. In this follow up to her first solo outing, Inside the Outside, Ms. Lee strays from the soft cell of jazz to explore R&B and even some island influences. She described the CD as "pop instrumental," but she is merely being modest. The ten tracks - six of them she wrote herself - have more than their fair share of artistry - doubly so since her backing musicians are established artists in their own right.

She opens by taming the original bluesy melancholy of Bill Withers' Use Me - the oddly-chosen title track - into quick tempo cheer, Amy follows up with two full-power tunes of real, grown-up music: Across the Water and Coming Home. Music to whistle along with... is there such a thing as "air sax?

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING! August 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ms. Lee has been an accomplished jazz saxophone player for a long time, but I believe this is her best work yet! It's powerful, sexy, soothing and she shows her virtuoso on every song. Order this CD!! It's guaranteed to please.

This is good if you are looking for sax music, but this is not the Amy Lee of Evanescence that Amazon so wrongly grouped together as if they were all by the same artist. This is something that Amazon needs to correct, they are misleading the buyer. You can't tell who this person is by this album cover. The two Amy Lee's are quite different and I am not sure the person that likes Evanescence would also like smooth Jazz, possible, but buyer beware.
