Toni Price – Talk Memphis

Here’s an excerpt from the AllMusic review by Hal Horowitz

Austin mainstay Toni Price ups the energy on her first album in four years. Talk Memphis rocks a bit harder, brings tougher soul, and generally burns hotter than much of the singer’s catalog. As usual, she chooses terrific material to work with. From the greasy Memphis groove of the title track to the rootsy funk of “Am I Groovin’ U?” to an obscure blues-soul gem from Stax’s tag team of Hayes/Porter called “Leftover Love” (originally performed by Mable John), Price stamps these songs with her distinctive and sexy Southern drawl. Longtime cohort Gwil Owen contributes three tunes that tap into his country-folk pedigree. The band of Austin pros plays with hot-buttered precision, and it adds up to a rousing good time that doesn’t expand Price’s borders as much as refine what she has already proved to do so effectively. It’s another in a series of terrific releases from one of Southern music’s best-kept secrets, who seems to improve with the passing years.
