Album Review
Talking about blues players outside America it´s hard to leave out Sven Zetterberg, Sweden´s most versatile artist in this field. Being both an excellent singer,guitarist,songwriter and harmonica player extraordinary, he has become a house-hold name all over Scandinavia. Born in Skärblacka on the 28th of March in 1952,Sven took music seriously enough to perform in school at the age of seven. "I didn´t know any real english words and couldn´t actually play any instrument but my grandmother had bought me an acoustic guitar that I fooled around with trying to mimic Elvis Presley. The first black performer I heard was Little Richard and he almost drove me crazy with his wild, frantic singing. "In 1964 he first heard Mick Jagger play harmonica and later that year heard Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller) and that got him started. "The Blues activated something in me and it still moves me". "Harmonica was my main instrument to begin with. I didn´t start playing guitar seriously until I was 24. The first bluesband , Telge Blues, was formed in 1972 and lasted long enough to make the Phillips record company interested enough to release an album in 1976. Today, many albums later, Sven hasn´t lost interest in performing or recording and two of his albums, "Blues from within" and "Let me get over it" were both nominated for a Grammy in Sweden. "Today Sven works mostly with the Rockarounds: Micke Finell: Tenor sax & Vocals, Calle Brickman: Keyboards, Tommy Cassemar: Bass, Ingemar Dunker: Drums
