Over the years there has been a steady stream of evidence that Scandinavians know, and can play the blues. The latest example comes from Norway in the shape of Jan Tore (J.T.) Lauritsen & The Buckshot Hunters' "Make A Better World." Lauritsen has been playing for over quarter of a century, but is still only in his early 30's. Over time he has migrated from keyboards to accordion and harp, and this is reflected in the selection of material, which mostly combines styles from the Louisiana region (swamp blues, Zydeco, New Orleans funk). The blend of Louisiana musical styles works very well, and the musicianship is of the highest order. As with most bands from Scandinavia, the songs are all delivered in perfect English.
Lauritsen comes across as a blue-eyed-soul vocalist, with just enough gravel in his voice to give his delivery the requisite grit. He does have a hint of an accent but it's only apparent on occasion and never really distracting. Above all there's something in his voice and his phrasing that somehow conveys his sheer love of every song he sings - it's intangible but genuinely infectious.
In addition to his soulful vocals, Lauritsen pays mean harmonica, accordion, and B3, wielding each judiciously for maximum effect - lots of squeezebox add a rather atypical texture to much of the material while occasional flourishes of squalling harp help keep things firmly grounded in the blues.
