Description

Mid-price reissue of Steen Vig and His Bluesicians' 1994 album 'Blue Boat' recorded as part of the prize he won at the 1993 Jazzpar Prize. Vig was one of Europe's most adventurous and wild players - deep-seated in the older part of the jazz tradition, but hard to categorise as he dug both trad, swing, R&B, soul, rock, and fusion as well as the Scandinavian sound.

Steen was one of those musicians you wanted to hear on stage for the full experience. But this recording is a fine substitute. Backed by a group of some his favourite Danish musicians and augmented with Gene Mighty Flea Connors on trombone (and vocal) and Cornell Dupree on guitar, this album will give you a taste of why those packed evenings in Vognporten were so special.

Unfortunately, Steen didn't live to see the album released. He died of a heart attack in his home on January 1., 1994. He was 49.
