TEXAS TORNADOS

ESTA BUENO!

2010-03-02

Esta Buenos definition is this is good, and The Texas Tornados have always believed in truth in advertising. It has been 14 years since their last studio release and during that time we lost two of the founding members, the late great Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender. For this release Shawn Sahm has filled into his fathers footsteps and the band has resurrected five previously unreleased vocal performances by Freddy Fender. The result brings back all the magic created by this Tex-Mex super group over 20 years ago. This CD is a real Tex-Mex party release and catches Augie Meyers and Flaco Jimenez relaxed and once again having fun making the music that made the Texas Tornados one of the most energetic and creative bands of the 1990’s. Esta Bueno will hopefully be the beginning of the next chapter for the Texas Tornados, because if this is any indication, it’s good. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
