Stevie Ray Vaughan was his uncle, Jimmie Vaughan is his father - that's guaranteed to be premature praise, but that can quickly become a burden, because how can you stylistically differentiate yourself from the two blues rock heroes? Tyronne Vaughan goes the right way, because he neither tries to imitate nor to distinguish himself from his relatives in a tense way and instead presents his ideas regarding organic sounds with a clear country influence. Discreet blues rock ("Nine Times Out Of Ten"), relaxed New Orleans blues reminiscent of Tab Benoit ("She Could Have Had Anything"), a tasteful country ballad ("Wanna Hear You Sing") and a lusty blues rocker ("Next Stop Texas") stand for a first-class singer and independent guitarist who pleases with his sensitive and economical playing.
