Come On In

Summary

The popular and award-winning orchestra brings forth a new album: 'Come On In'. The intensity is intact, but there is also room for new streaks of melancholy. Through more than 1,000 concerts in 21 different countries, the hard swinging and critically acclaimed ensemble has made people smile and dance. For that is what the blues is capable of: grooving away life’s problems. The front man knows this better than most, and on the 10th album - with the inviting title 'Come On In' - he goes into clinch with everything from his own age to political reality.

In 2019, these musicians still work in the same way as when they began. Thorbjørn Risager sits at home with his acoustic guitar and creates the core of the song before they enter the studio, where everyone offers beats, bass lines, horn parts, backup vocals and fills. All that provides the Black Tornado with a sound that evokes a feeling of the elements raging around Risager's voice.

Their open-minded and innovative approach to the blues adds elements to the songs from genres like funk, gospel, soul and rock 'n' roll. It all depends on the feeling and the direction of the song. One of the significant nuances of the new album is ist axis of melancholic songs with acoustic guitar. It has instinctively arisen because the blues now reflects where Risager stands in life.

“The blues is my outlet. And this time, I've written some songs about having doubts about whether I'm the right place in my life. However, there is something fundamental in my songwriting that seeks the light. Which is about clenching your teeth together, saying, 'I'll just keep moving on'.”
