Black River Bluesman & Bad Mood Hudson

Black River Bluesman & Bad Mood Hudson (FIN)

Jukka “Black River Bluesman” Juhola ja “Andy” Bad Mood Hudson’i bluus on toores, räpane ja ilus. Jukka esitab seda Johnny Lowebow autentsetel käsitsi valmistatud cigar box kitarridel. Erilisim neist on kahe kaelaga stereo baritonpill, mis võimaldab tal mängida bassi ja meloodiapartiid samal ajal. Multi-instrumentalist Andy funktsioneerib selles koosseisus trummari, perkussionisti ja taustalauljana. Nagu võis lugeda ühest kontserdiarvustusest: “Parim kahemehe trio, mida kuulnud olen!” Soomlaste duo on mänginud festivalidel ja klubides üle kogu maailma – Nepaalist, Taist, Suurbritannia ja USA-ni.

Nende muusikas on erilist kõigile. Rokkmuusika kriitikud ütlevad: “See on bluusialbum, aga me armastame seda!” ning bluusikriitikud: “See ei ole bluusialbum, aga me armastame seda!”

John Vermilyea (Blues Underground Network) on nende kohta öelnud, et oma albumiga “Double Headed Trouble” on Juhola ja Hudson suutnud viia bluusi äärmustesse. Niimoodi tehes on nad toonud meid palju lähemale bluusi autentsusele ja pärimusele. Nende muusika annab meile midagi värsket ja uut, samal ajal hoides ja austades vana ning puhast.

Jukka ´Black River Bluesman´ Juhola and ‘Andy’ Bad Mood Hudson’s Blues is raw, dirty and beautiful. Jukka plays that on Johnny Lowebow’s genuine handmade custom cigar box guitars. The most special one is the double neck stereo baritone, which allows him to play bass and lead at the same time. Andy, the multi-instrumentalist functions in this line-up as a drummer-percussionist and a back-up singer. As in one gig review: “The best two-man trio I’ve heard.” This duo has played in festivals and clubs all over the world – from Nepal, Thailand to UK and USA.

Their music has this special something for everyone, as the rock critics say: “It is a Blues album, but we love it!” and Blues critics say: “It is not a Blues album but we love it!”

John Vermilyea from Blues Underground Network has said, that with their album “Double Headed Trouble”, Juhola and Hudson have managed to take the Blues right to the edge. Doing so, they have managed to also bring us a lot closer to its raw origin. Their music gives us something fresh and new, with the essence and respect for the old and pure.
