Vocalist Randi Cee displays impressive range on new EP
(Published: July 14, 2015)

There is a difference between simply covering a classic and actually sounding like it was recorded in the era it originated.

For Randi Cee, her EP Any Kind of Man greatly benefits from its sonic authenticity; one can easily imagine these versions emanating from an old radio, crackling vinyl and all. It's as if her and her fellow musicians - saxophonist/clarinetist Phil Krawzak, trumpeter/trombonist Corey Gemme, violinist Benedikt Brydern, guitarist John Reynolds, pianist Randy Waltz, bassist Katie Cavera, and drummer Josh Collazo - somehow time-traveled into the past.

Like the finest vocalists from the early days of jazz, Cee has multiple dimensions in her singing. On the title track, Cee is approriately brimming with lustful vigor; the band follows her lead, providing a bluesy, sleazy backdrop that captures what it must have felt like listening to risque music like this in a nightclub back then.

On "After You've Gone," Cee aims for a crystalline prettiness that she easily nails; her vocals are breathtakingly pretty here. The playfulness of "Bye Bye Blackbird" and the nostalgic balladry of "You Made Me Love You" add to Cee's impressive range.

These are no paint-by-numbers renditions; Cee grabs them by both hands and makes them her own.

(Randi Cee will have a CD release party at Areal Restaurant and Bar, 2820 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA on July 19 at 7 p.m.)
