Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society
hails from Denmark, yet the only thing that may give this away is
that his English is too well pronounced!!
Klarskov plays in the T-Bone style and does
it well, producing a wonderful tone.
His big band of rhythm section, two sax’s, trombone, organ
and piano head the music in a more jazz flavoured style. T-Bone’s
“Strolling with bone,” “Jealous Woman” and
“T-Bone Shuffle” get a work out as does Big Joe Turner’s
“Wee wee baby” and Sonny and Brownie’s “Whoo
The latter song being taken from stripped down country blues duo
and beefed up by the 8 piece outfit. An original “The blues
is a feeling” is reminiscent of BB King.
This CD also contains a DVD with various footage and bonus tracks.
It has very slick packaging, a little overdone with interviews and
many photo’s in the sleeve, not sure of the cost in the store?
Although the addition of Klarskov’s New Orleans Gumbo recipe
is well worth it!!
