 Kaye Bohler – Handle The Curves

(Independent release)

This is a wonderful old school blues and soul album from California vocalist Kaye – she’s a big and brassy and sassy singer, aided on this set by some of the Golden State’s finest, including Rob Dzibula (as it says on the sleeve) on sax and the excellent Pete Anderson on guitar and bass.

The sound alternates between slow, deep, soulful blues and a full Stax type soul feel, and Kaye handles both with ease and skill – she also wrote all ten numbers herself and they have a honest and autobiographical feel to them, whether she is dealing with women’s inner strength , life’s trials and tribulations, or simply the double-entendre of the title track.

Well worth investigating this release, lovely packaging too- and I’m not just talking about the front sleeve photo…
