New ’surprise’ album to be released April 9th 2021!
Thorbjørn Risager & Emil Balsgaard – Taking The Good With The Bad
Everybody who is interested in blues, knows about Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado, who’s been entertaining blueslovers all over the world for the past 19 years with their spectacular shows and releases.
Fewer people know that Thorbjørn Risager and Tornado-pianoman Emil Balsgaard have a history together which goes much further back in time. Their partnership began 27 years ago when they met in a New Orleans style blues ’n’ funk band called Rad Gumbo.
Thorbjørn and Emil have spent the covid19-lockdown recording their third duoalbum entitled Taking The Good With The Bad.
The album shows that their love for that special New Orleans style blues ’n’ funk has not faded. The album contains pulverising boogie blues, a sweet touch of caribian rhythms and low down dirty funk.
Tornado bassman Søren Bøjgaard has recorded and co-produced the album which also contains guest appearences by Tornado members Joachim Svensmark and Martin Seidelin.
