Tasty picking and impressive slide guitar , nice flowing guitar solos , vocally he gets into Tom Waits/ Dave Van Ronk territory , spooky grooves and textures .

They’re calling him the new king of the Voodoo blues. Unlike the old king, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Neal Black is white. He’s from Texas and plays high voltage boogie guitar but has also studied under jazz giants Herb Ellis and Barney Kessel. Perhaps his best known song to date is “Jesus or Johnny Walker ” delivered in a hoarse growl that evokes the shade of Blind Willie Johnson, greatest of the Texas gospel shouters.
