"LOVE THAT (BLACK MAGIC)BLUES
Jörgen Åsling heard T-Bone Walker for the first time and his future had no choice, it was to be a blues guitarist. Born in Malmö (Sweden), Åsling has lived inseparable from his guitar, from his beginnings in the early nineties playing in small clubs with the singer Pia Karlsson until forming his first band that he first called Malmö Blues Orchestra to later re-found it as WB. Talking Band. In 2000 he captained the first professional band, Sir Åsling & T-Bone Orchestra with whom he recorded the album "Let's Jump Tonight". Another name change for the band, this time Sir Jay & His Blues Orchestra. With them he released the albums "Blues For Uncle Sam" with a more jazzy cut and "The Stockholm Sessions" with blues as the main protagonist, and finally in 2022 he has just released a new work, in this case reviewing the songs of Fleetwood Mac while Peter Green was with the band between 1967 and 1970, after leaving John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Green was not only the guitarist for Fleetwood Mac but he was the main songwriter and the soul that made the band one of the most genuine and formidable groups of British blues in the sixties. In fact, when Green left them, the band explicitly jumped into commercial and mainstream, so they started making money. Excellent guitarist, Jörgen Åslin with this album pays a splendid tribute to one of the greatest British blues guitarists that has ever existed, but without the fortune of having had a career and an acceptance equal to his excellence.
