Trouble With The Blues is the latest offering from blues rock outfit Gerry Jablonski And The Electric Band.

The Scottish four-piece have toured Europe extensively over the last 6 years and the end result is their superb new album Trouble With The Blues. The band features guitar virtuoso Gerry Jablonski (guitar and lead vocals), Grigor Leslie (bass), Lewis Fraser (drums), and Peter Narojczyk (harmonica) all the way from Poland.

The band’s fourth studio album was mastered at the world famous Abbey Road studios in London. On their latest album Gerry Jablonski And The Electric Band are sounding very tight. The album is oozing with Jablonski’s captivating guitar solos and infused with Narojczyk’s phenomenal blues harp playing. Throughout the album, the pair play off each other and compliment one and another very well.

Straight from the off, the title track is one of the stand out tracks of the album. An up tempo blues rock number with some funky bass and superb blues harp which fits nicely alongside Gerry’s incredible playing.

With “The Curse” you get a love song with a bit of a difference and features some subtle Jimi Hendrix-esque wah wah playing a la “Voodoo Chile” from Jablonksi. More traditional blues numbers like the excellent “Down To The Ground” also feature and has a feel reminiscent of Led Zeppelin’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You.”

Trouble With The Blues has something for everyone including heartfelt tracks like “The Well,” “Anybody,” and acoustic ballad “I Confess,” sitting side by side foot stomping blues rock numbers like “Fork Fed Dog,” and “Big Bad World.”

Having been a stalwart of the Scottish blues scene for almost 30 years, Gerry Jablonski along with the Electric Band are still going strong.
