Toni Redd hits the ground running on Catching the Redd Eye. “Just Me” serves as her answer to those who mistakenly pigeonhole her as a one trick ballad singer. The mid-tempo funk number is one of those tunes that allow Redd to introduce herself to the audience while also taking a victory lap for the hard work that allowed her career to progress to this point.
Two other tracks allow Redd to take listeners deeper into the jazz/funk vein. “To The Floor” sports a driving bass and a Harmon muted trumpet and tells the story of a couple finding love on the dance floor. Redd adopts a sassy tone on “It’s About Me,” a tune in which she sets a selfish and needy acquaintance straight. The track’s rolling bass line gives the number a feel of tension conflict and Redd’s conversational yet aggressive vocals compliment the instrumental arrangement.
It's good to talk.
