Album Review

The Texas Tornados quietly folded in the wake of the death of Doug Sahm in 1999, but roughly a decade later they just as quietly became a going concern under the direction of his son Shawn, reuniting for regular gigs and a new album called ¡Esta Bueno!. Released in March of 2010 (alongside the publication of the first-ever Doug Sahm biography entitled — what else — Texas Tornado), ¡Esta Bueno! revives a couple of Sir Doug staples (“Chicano” and Bobby Charles’ “Tennessee Blues”), and also several unreleased performances from the other departed Tornado, Freddy Fender — a whopping five, including a handful of new songs, their presence giving ¡Esta Bueno! an even stronger feel of a classic Texas Tornados album.

Like much roots rock made since the Tornados’ 1990 debut, ¡Esta Bueno! is a shade too clean in its production — it could use just a bit of grit in its sound — but it’s hard to complain too much because the spirit of the record is so joyous, it’s hard not to smile as it plays.
