Blues Bites

By Mark E. Gallo

Dan Klarskov and his band have a superb CD/DVD combo in Blues At Dexter. (Clearwood).

The Danish band has the swing thing down pat.

Opening with a finger-snapping version of Big Joe Turner’s “Wee Wee Baby,” tenor man Anders Gaardmand challenges guitarist/vocalist Klarskov for most impressive solo.
The big horn section and strong rhythm section propel this band through ten swingin’ tunes, recorded in front of a live audience.

Klarskov contributes originals that sound at home in the program equally mixed with classic from the genre from T-Bone Walker (three tunes), Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, and a superb take on George Jackson’s “Last Two Dollars.”

This is at turns greasy, rockin, and always swingin’ and one of the standouts of the year. Whew!
