Album Notes
”They don’t make them like that anymore”
When you’ve been around on this earth for a while, that thought does come to you once in a
while. It could hit you when you see a nice old car, a music instrument, a real ”old school”
personality being interviewed on the TV…. and if you’re into the blues, this thought definitely
comes more often as the years keep passing by. Our heroes pass away, and many of the young
musicians who try to pick up this heritage will sound like scholars for a long time before they
might come out as a full-fledged blues musician.
But here’s a guy that startles you as soon as you hear the sound of his guitar, his voice and the
way he deals with the tradition. Raw and direct, well not ”too raw” but just sounding like himself.
A straight-forward approach, with that special ”bite” that we associate with some of the great
Where does he find it? Maybe in the deep forests of Värmland, a sparsely populated region in
Sweden, near the Norwegian border. But mostly in his deep long-term love story with the blues,
with heroes like Albert Collins, Albert and Freddie King, Luther Allison and other great
representatives of modern electric blues with a twist of funk. And one thing he has in common
with these musicians is that he will never play a set with only shuffles, but keeps varying his
tempos and beats. Not only is he a natural talent on the guitar, but his expressive and direct voice
and his creative songwriting contribute to his sound, raw and mature at the same time.
The band T-Bear and the Dukes of Rhythm was started by Torbjörn Solberg in his hometown
Arvika, Sweden, in 2004, and they have released two CD’s with their previous lineup, including
a horn section: ”Let The Sweet Talk Flow” and ”Broadway Twist”.
The new band is a quartet, featuring Hammond wizard Paul ”Palle” Wagnberg, a professional
musician since 1985, including 20 years in soul jazz group ”The Real Thing”. Bass player Jan
Lillsäter has been supporting T-Bear for more than 20 years, steady as a rock, no matter if he’s
playing electric bass or upright. The new drummer Henrik ”Henke” Berg was carefully chosen
for his good beat and good spirit, and the new band made a great impact during their first tour in
Benelux May 2013.
Ice Machine contains 9 originals plus one song by Willie Dixon and one by Stevie Ray Vaughan.
