Product Overview

With this project, Johan Jansen leaves little doubt that he is one of Europe's foremost steel players. Framed by spectacular arrangements of contemporary instrumentals, JJ exhibits a spectacular tone, perfect attack and uncannily precise pitch control.

The material is all original, written by the CD's executive producer, Case Schafrat. The rich, modern arrangements vary in style from dancable R&B to smooth jazz, from bluesy rock to tender ballads, somehow managing to avoid "country" the whole time. A top notch horn section joins JJ on several cuts, and there are guest appearances by American steelers Paul Franklin, Bob Hoffnar and Dan Tyack. A booklet lists the musicians (lots of them!) on all of the tracks, and JJ's copedent and equipment list are also included.

"The more I listen to this CD, the more I hear. The production is rich and subtle, and JJ's technique is mesmerizing. Bravo, Johan!~ Bobby Lee
