2018 – Lady "A"
By Phillip Smith; Nov. 10, 2018
Doin’ Fine, the fourth album from Anita White aka Lady “A” is a terrific follow-up to her 2016 album, Loved, Blessed, and Blues. Teaming up once again with producer Dexter Allen, this singer/songwriter from the Pacific Northwest makes sure the record is loaded with funky soul and smooth blues. With Lady “A” on vocals and Allen on guitars and bass, Chris “Rattlesnake” Minter holds down the drums, and Joey Robinson accompanies on both piano and drums.
Like that first ray of sunshine that carves its beautiful path to earth each day, title track “Doin’ Fine” sets the stage for a an enlightening listen and reassures everything will be ok. This upbeat opener reels me right in with its gospel-infused rhythm and Lady “A’s” spirited vocals. “Change the World” wonderfully plays like a recently uncovered Otis Redding song. Poignant and beautiful, this song expresses a strong desire to make the world a better place. “Throw Down” is a whole lot of fun too. Blessed by a funk in the style of George Clinton, this tune is an absolute treat.
Lady “A” who also hosts the award-winning online radio shows, The Gumbo & Gospel Show, and Black N Blues on NWCZ Radio once again scores big points with this new album. It definitely grabs my attention.
