Introducing: The bluesy-jazz of Tabah (Show TONIGHT!)
Our local scene has a lot of different pockets of sound, but blues-jazz is one I can safely say is not a crowded corner of the arena. Stepping forward to change that are local group Tabah, who released their Time Will Come LP earlier this year. You can watch the five piece group noodle through subtle but funky “Myth” above via a recent Radio K in-studio. The song melds dual guitars and rich organ with a 70’s AOR groove, all splashed with Cecelia Erholtz’s gritty vocals. Yes, there are guitar and organ solos, but this isn’t Steve Vai, and the song doesn’t feel overdone even at close to six minutes. If you are looking for an updated version of your classic rock LPs with a slight twist, compiled by people who weren’t alive when ZZ Top started their improbable run, I present to you Tabah. If you dig their sound, check them out tonight at the 7th Street Entry with General B and the Wiz and William Within.
