Patrik Jansson Band - Patrik Jansson Band

Sneaky Foot Records

10 tracks

Patrik Jansson Band is Per Enstedt on bass, Fredrick Hartelius on drums, Henning Axelsson on keys, and the namesake on guitar, vocals and percussion. Hailing from Sweden, these guys play all original music on this CD, which is pretty much blues influenced rock.

The songs are solid, have a good, driving beat and Jansson's vocals are good, too. They open with "That's What I Say", a rocking number that sets the tone well for this album. "Something Special" is one of the slower tracks, and throws down a nice groove that sets up this song well. The instrumental simply entitled "Instrumental" is well done; a bouncing pace and some well done guitar work. Six of the tracks are up-tempo while the other four show us the band's slower side, and they pull that off equally well.

While this is not an an extraordinary album, it shows that this guy and his band can write and play some good original songs and hold their own as a rocking blues band. I'd offer that they should hearken a bit more back to the blues influences they list on their web site to get a more bluesy and less rocking tone and sound. Musically well-done, I look forward to hearing more in the future from these young gents as they grow their blues band side a bit.
