Loving You More…In The Spirit Of Etta James

Loving You More…In The Spirit Of Etta James by Leela James
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Shanachie
It's expected that Leela James must pay homage to the late Etta James by singing Etta's anthem, "At Last," in a style similar to the original. However, the rest of James' Loving You More is surprisingly irreverent. She adds a Linn drum machine to "Damn Your Eyes" for a rhythm akin to Prince's "When Doves Cry"; and "Sunday Kind of Love" gets a similar '80s R&B makeover. She lifts the piano line from Dr. Dre's "Still D.R.E." for a swinging version of "It Hurts Me So Much." James' covers are so playful that her final track, "At Last," is just a perfunctory, if necessary, epilogue.
