ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Schooled in everything from traditional jazz to flamenco guitar to avant-garde fusion, Saul Kaye has a huge arsenal to choose from when he picks up his guitar and steps up to the microphone. Choosing the bluesy rock n' roll medium for his 8th release is the obvious choice for the range of colloquial stories and tales he tells on this album. Kaye's flamenco and blues influences really come out in these songs, and by layering his guitar over sparse honky tonk-like piano comps he sets a cozy western stage for songs like "Desert Blues," "Rubyhill," and "Hey Johnny Johnny."

All of the tunes have a terrific narrative quality, telling stories about people in the dumps, down on their luck, skipping bail, low on money, losing in life and love. But with his powerful singing voice, Doctor Kaye orders his characters to take it easy and soak in the sun. "Angels fly cause they take themselves so lightly," he sings on the title song.

With "Doctor's Orders," Saul Kaye proves he is well on his way to mastering the art of musical storytelling.

"...smokin! Saul' new album is all that and a donut! Warm witty songs in a Dave Matthews Band vibe make this album a huge winner.
...there is not a bad song on this CD. And I do believe Saul's friends who helped him record this gem deserve some props. Sam Bevan played bass,Ricky Carter chipped in on drums,Adam Goodhue also played drums and Cyrise Beatty helped with the vocals on "Vincent Knows".
Very highly recommended!!! "

"This is just what the doctor ordered. Predictable critical cliché? Of course but I had to go there because its right-on. Crooning about in a blues-rock fashion that could get even the most sleepy coffeehouse jumping, Saul Kaye could easily be compared to fellow South African Dave Matthews. Yes his guitar playing is that good. Perhaps its because he's studied with flamenco guitarist Juan Serrano and jazz fusion guitarist Jeff Massanari, that his guitar work is steeped in originality. Vocally he accomplishes great harmonies while he sings true-to-form real stories that anyone can relate to."

CD Baby


Carefree in its sway and but built on a foundation of conviction and inistence, Saul Kaye composes from a palette rooted in jazz and pop harmonies that often hitch a ride on the back of Americana and well-steeped blues. But Saul could probably pull off any style with pipes like his. Give him a piano and this man could do anything. He can take you from a Randy Newman swagger to a timeless Billy Joel-like hook to a Bruce Hornsby texture, never missing a step, never giving up the integrity. You've got a songwriter here who's bound to turn some important heads.
