Turrentine Jones released a couple of very good tracks last year but their latest effort, ‘Della May’, blows everything else they have done to date out of the water.
The Manchester based trio continue to embrace their quite obvious affection for old (‘5os/’60s) r&b, rock ‘n roll and blues influences, yet, they manage to keep it sounding pretty fresh. A Hammond organ fuels the groove as ‘Della May’ bristles with jaunty enthusiasm, its infectious swagger warms its way to the heart. Rousing stuff, no question.
‘Della May’ is out on February 22nd and it is fair to say Turrentine Jones have kicked off 2013 in quite some style.
