Reviews:

''Turn Me Loose'' is the fourth studio album by American R&B and jazz singer-songwriter Ledisi, released August 18, 2009 on Verve Records. It was recorded after Ledisi's experience with writer's block, which she overcame after finding inspiration in listening to Buddy Miles's ''Them Changes'' (1970). In contrast to her previous work with jazz and soul influences, the album features a prominent funk sound. ''Turn Me Loose'' charted at number 14 on the ''Billboard'' 200, with 27,000 copies sold in the first week. It received generally positive reviews from music critics, based on an aggregate score of 72/100 from Metacritic. ''Turn Me Loose'' was nominated for two 2010 Grammy Awards including Best R&B Album & Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "Goin Thru Changes". - Wikipedia
