RootsTown Music (Belgium)
February 2002

by Ben Vanhoegaerden

At the moment Dan Klarskov live in Copenhagen and this is his
second cd. As the title states we have blues here and with
Klarskov that means variation. He has an outstanding band
and guest musicians, such as a horn section, a piano player
and even a conga player. It gives the music something extra.
Thirteen tracks, partly his own songs, partly covers of a.o.
Hot Lips Page, Walter Davis, Jimmy Rushing, Sonny Terry &
Brownie McGhee and T-Bone Walker.
West Coast swing, slow blues, mambo blues (Jimmy Rushing goes Caribbean), bluesrock, funky organ stuff in the best Jimmy Smith tradition, bigband music...yes, this is a real varied cd with a lot
of space for the Honeydrippers who get the chance to shine.

Dan Klarskov scores with one of the best blues cd's
in recent times and that's more than welcome for a style
that's milked to death.

Dan Klarskov bor for øjeblikket i København og dette er hans
anden cd. Som titlen angiver har vi her at gøre med blues
og det er for Klarskov en bred musikalsk oplevelse.
Han råder over et udsøgt band og ditto gæstemusikanter,
gående over en virkelig - sanselig Blæsersektion, over til en
pianist og en congas spiller. Det kommer musikken til gode.
13 tracks hvor af en del egne numre og covers fra bl.a.
Hot Lips Page, Walter Davis, Jimmy Rushing, Sonny Terry &
Brownie McGhee, T-Bone Walker.
West Coast swing, slow blues, mambo blues (Jimmy Rushing
goes Caribbean), bluesrock, funky orgel materiale den bedste
Jimmy Smith-tradition og bigband musik.

Ja denne cd er meget varieret og der er givet meget plads
til at The Honeydrippers regelmæssigt kan få lov til at udfolde sig.
En rumlighed som betyder at Dan Klarskov får leveret
en fortræffelig - proper blues-cd.
Det er i denne tid mere end velkommen i en genre der er døende.
