The bluesy sound in “Habbie Doobie” and “Pain” reminds you of two of the three kings in blues. Albert King and Freddie King would probably like these tracks as the show groove, funk, and soul in a blended mix of Southern Rock. We’re talking about The Texas Gentlemen who released their debut Studio album TX Jelly this September via New West Records.
‘A band Slowly Coming Together’
The band describes this record nicely “Sometimes, authenticity can sneak up on you. The first sounds you hear on The Texas Gentlemen’s debut studio album, TX Jelly, is that of a band slowly coming together.”
“Habbie Doobie” Blues and Funk inspiration
“Habbie Doobie” is remarkable for its grooving guitar riff, which reminds you of Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign”. Also, the Honky Tonk Piano additions in this track make you very happy. On their website you’ll read that it is “a low-slung piece of vintage country-funk that slams out of the speakers and announces the Texas Gentlemen as a force to be reckoned with”, I couldn’t agree more!
