This is truly fantastic NEWS!!!

We just found out that we’re on the Schallplattenkritik Bestenliste 3-2014 in Germany!

This is what the jury wrote as their reason for choosing “Too Many Roads” (Ruf Records) as the best blues release (in¬†German….)

“Mit The Black Tornado, seiner mit Bl√§sern gespickten Band im R√ľcken, und mit einem Dutzend bemerkenswerter Songs im Gep√§ck nimmt sich Thorbj√łrn Risager der Aufgabe an, bodenst√§ndigen Rhythm‚Äôn‚ÄôBlues, Roots-Blues und emotionsgetr√§nkten Soul im Angedenken an die Altvorderen zu spielen und trotzdem topmodern zu klingen. Das versuchen viele, aber nur ganz wenigen gelingt es auf so souver√§ne Weise wie dem Mann aus Kopenhagen mit ‚ÄěToo Many Roads‚Äú. Seine ausdrucksstarke, m√§chtige R√∂hre ist auch hier wieder das Sahneh√§ubchen auf dem Blueskuchen. Risager hat schon einige gute CDs ver√∂ffentlicht, diese ist sein Meisterst√ľck.” (F√ľr die Jury: Karl Leitner)
