5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Beth and Joe. 21 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beth and Joe's second release together and it doesn't disappoint.
I don't think there's a weak track on this album which is no surprise given both artists pedigree. Add a fantastic backing band comprising of some of the best musicians out there and you can't go wrong.
Another great selection of tunes for Beth to belt out in her unmistakable style. It can only be a matter of time before Beth's career goes into the stratosphere she has to be one if not the best female singers out there.
It really makes me sick when you see the crap that we get fed on from the endless talent shows out there, (Did I say talent), yet artists like Beth get overlooked. I recommend you catch her live if you get a chance you wont be disappointed, believe me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant joint album 22 May 2013
By David P TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Joe on guitar, Beth singing - what could go wrong? Answer: nothing. This is a superb follow up to their first collaboration. I agree with another reviewer, Beth's version of Nutbush is really exciting, every bit as good as the original. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOLY CANNOLI MY SPEAKERS ARE ON FIRE! 21 May 2013
By Jeanie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beth and Joe have done it again. This effervescent follow up album to the exquisite Don't Explain is again stellar, yet more upbeat, high energy, soulful and rockin. No sophomore slump here. Beth & Joe have hit their stride and perhaps are even more in tune with working together on the second go around.

A classy choice of songs have been selected, previously recorded by Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, and Nina Simone. From big band sounds, to sultry ballads, to balls out growl and howl, to French inspired with Arlan Schierbaum on accordion. Somehow the diversity of the songs are tied together to make a cohesive whole. Anton Fig gives a powerhouse performance on drums with the rest of the excellent band Blondie Chaplin and Carmine Rojas rounding everything out.

Vintage songs and in a sense vintage recording as well. Producer Kevin Shirley's method of recording live in the studio with the entire band playing together is the antithesis of so much of today's manipulated and computerized music. This band is interacting with each other and having FUN - and you can hear it in the music! Later in the process the horns by Lee Thornburg and Ron Dziubla are added as well as the strings by Jeff Bova which just takes everything to yet another level.

Beth Hart not only has an effing astounding voice, but the ability to truly connect with the material and make it her own, then communicate the emotion behind it. Joe Bonamassa augments the songs and compliments Beth's vocals perfectly with tasteful guitar work that is restrained in places and in some places he really lets loose. He shines on the solo at the end of I Love You More than You'll Ever Know with bluesy, soulful work.

Stunning record. Brilliantly done. Guaranteed to brighten your day. One of the best albums of the year. A big sassy bitch of an album!

4.0 out of 5 stars The reason a Seesaw was made for two people... 1 Jun 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
...is that when you go down, there will always be someone to lift you up again.

Seesaw dips further into the world of traditional vocal jazz with slower tempos and more restrained string arrangements than Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa's previous collaboration Don't Explain, which had more country and soul influences. Ms Hart's performance is smoother too. Anyone expecting the raw rasping vocals that are the trademark of her blues output might be disappointed. I emphasise might. Her performance suits the material, and the difference between a good singer with an interesting voice and a great singer is that they can choose exactly how much of a technique they want to use in a given performance. Her love for the material shines on this record with songs like Them There Eyes and Seesaw sounding sweet and bright, while Close To My Fire and If I Tell You I Love You have a rich, smooth late-night-in-a-smokey-jazz-club quality to them. And if you listen to the way she uses a sharp sustained notes in the final verses of Strange Fruit to reenforce the brooding sadness of the song, you will discover what a clean, powerful singer she can be.

Joe Bonamassa too is showing what a craftsman he is. He long ago dispensed with need to wow people with guitar histrionics and instead delivers tight guitar breaks and interesting rhythm and accompanying parts that bolster the vocal performance. It's fascinating to see him experimenting with funk and acoustic blues on his last few records and now traditional Jazz on this. (I have reached the point where I buy his new releases on spec, and I've yet to be disappointed.) That's not to say that there aren't good solos on this album though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy Number 2 24 May 2013
By J. M. Green VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thought that the original collaboration between Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa in 2011 was a class act and that it would be a hard one to better - BUT, my goodness me, these two are absolutely steaming on this album and whereas "DON'T EXPLAIN" had Joe pretty much down in the mix, leaving the rest of the musicians to shine, on "SEESAW" he comes very much to the fore with some compelling solos!
Certainly, this new album is much more in the line of the Big Band sound of Blues/Jazz/Swing a la Jools Holland but there are some real crackers here that make you sit up and listen including "Nutbush City Limits" sung with fire and passion as only (or so I thought) Tina Turner could manage with Beth truly belting out those lyrics!
Other highlights include "Close To My Fire" and "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" with Joe's steamy, sinewy solo as a real treat for blues guitar fans, but really, there is nothing but excellent musicianship, songcraft and passion sitting in the 11 tracks presented here - and if you're quick about it, you can pick up the special edition with bonus DVD including 3 music videos and interviews with both Beth and Joe and the rest of the people involved with the making of this album and "consumate" and "professional" are the two abiding words to sum this package up.
If you love the blues in all of it's forms then you'll love this album but even if you don't actually love this genre, the magic that comes across in the interchange between these two stars you will still find most infectious and entertaining!
A must for any serious music collector!
