Blueass Blues Band - Crossing (2003 SWE)

Este grupo sueco de blues,comenzo su andadura en el año 1981 y su musica ha sido comparada con la de los Fabulous Thunderbirds. Su estilo de Texas Blues es elegante y convence. Sus canciones originales y unos musicos excepcionales.

La canción que abre el disco "Like A Bluesmachine," va directo a la yugular con un ritmo rápido.El resto del disco es variado en contenido destacando "Behind The Smoke" con un estridente Rockabilly Beat, "You Hurt Me" con un toque de guitarra wah-wah en plan Hendrix o Earl Hooker y la pieza final "Life Is A Mystery" que conbina una melancolica slide guitar con la armonica de Johan Hjortsberg.

The first joint release through this collaboration is the newest release by Blueass Blues Band, who've been together since 1981 displaying some mighty fine Rockin' Blues. Their music has been compared to the works of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and with good reason, as they can certainly pull off that Texas-styled Bluesy swagger quite convincingly. "Crossing" is the band's fourth release and it is packed full of original tunes and exceptional musicianship. The quartet is made up of twin guitarists and principal songwriters Peter "PG" Gustavsson and Ralph "R&B" Broqvist, along with bass player Morgan Jansson and drummer Per Hero; all of the members share in vocal duties.

The selections on this CD are wide-ranged, all of which are deftly crafted with excitement. The opening tune, "Like A Bluesmachine," goes straight for the jugular right off the bat, it's in-your-face and fast-paced. Just the right type of song to grab your attention immediately. From there, it's a real mish-mash of jumpin' numbers including highlights such as "Behind The Smoke" with its raucous Rockabilly beat; "You Hurt Me,"a Jimi Hendrix/Earl Hooker-styled wah-wah guitar piece; and the closing tune, "Life Is A Mystery," which blends a mournful slide guitar with amplified harp supplied by Johan Hjortsberg.

Dicho esto, Solo queda escucharlos.
