Album Review

His third album finds Kirk Fletcher singing strong, contemporary, soulful blues in the new populist image of someone like Robert Cray. Mostly mellow but not nearly as slick, Fletcher's apprenticeship with Charlie Musselwhite and the Mannish Boys has served him well enough to tackle music from varied songwriters such as Jimmy Reed, Jesse Edwin Davis, James Earl Thompson, Sly Stone, Will Felder, and Travis Carlton, while adding three more tunes of his own, including one that is loose and even experimental. With various rhythm players, guitarist/producer Michael Landau, saxophonist Paulie Cerra, and trumpeter Paul Litterall, Fletcher sounds like he is coming into his own on his terms. From the cover of the traditional "Congo Square" with loud guitar and a Neville Brothers attitude, to the fast, instrumental rocker "El Medio Stomp" and Thompson's shuffle swing "Ain't No Way," it's clear Fletcher's music is not set in stone. On the more traditional end are slow get-down tunes like "Blues for Antone" or the steady rollin' Reed classic "Found Love," but then Fletcher hits up the lighter retro-funk of Sly's "Let Me Have It All" with wah-wah guitar, horns, and organ, assuring everybody what generation Fletcher comes from. It's that mix of looking back and being in the present that makes Kirk Fletcher's blues enjoyable and even adorable, carving a bright and long-lasting future for this premier blues artist. ~ Michael G.

An Expert That Needs To Be Front And Center

It certainly is Kirk Fletcher's turn. On his third solo album, the guitarist is stepping into the spotlight after touring and guest starring for years. And he handles the spotlight with technical and vocal skill that makes you sure he's ready for it.

The title track, “My Turn”, is a saxophone driven, melodic masterpiece, while “El Medio Stomp”, the opener, is a roaring dance number that will leave you excited for the rest of the album. “Way Back Home” slows things down a little, after the electric “Congo Square”, one of the two songs featuring vocals. The other, “Found Love”, is a sweet track, but still leaves you impressed with Fletcher's guitar skills.

Fletcher has been touring with others and guest starring for way too long. My Turn is far overdue – he's an expert that needs to be front and center.

Half & Half

Kirks first two albums were excellent blues albums. This one lingers between elevator music and funk 50% of the time. The other 50% you can hear an excellent blues.

Great CD amazing live

I saw Kirk live at The Shore and was blown away by the way he plays. I instantly had to buy the cd and have been listening to it ever since. Must buy/have CD
