J. Åsling Roots & Friends – “The Stockholm Sessions”
This is new hot band from Sweden with its own mix of Blues, Swamp and Soul. The first two songs are very surprising because it starts with a kind of skiffle and then a South American dance song. But the Blues comes with the third track – and heavy! The instrumental Blues for Tarantino grooves with a fat organ, then the musicians from northern Europe give full respect to Delta Blues.
Sven Zetterberg – better known for his guitar work – is giving some fine harp. But the five piece band has a lot more to give: Strong Boogie Woogie with cool retro-guitar (Swedish stomp), Jump-Blues (Down at the Wicked Pick), Old style southern soul (please tell me), Rock and Roll (She whispered sweetly) and Swamp Blues. After 45 strong entertaining minutes at a high level we agree with the liner notes – it´s a very rare and a very exciting moment. Detlef Föhrs Blues News Magazine no 81.
