“Sarcastic, happy, sad, cynical, black-humorous – that’s my blues! “
For almost twenty years Jörg Danielsen’s heart beats for the earthiest of all musical genres.
At concerts with his band, the Vienna Blues Association and the – now legendary – blues jam sessions he organizes, classics by Albert Collins, Magic Slim and Muddy Waters are given as much as songs of their own accord.
National and international cooperations as well as four own albums are among the great successes of recent years.
In 2017, Jörg conquered Argentina and toured with the local blues band Verteramo Trio & Jorge Costales and the “Blues Company” across the country to present his album. It was also possible to perform together with Mártin Burguez (El Club del Jump) and Juancho Hernandez (Evil Blues Band / La Frondosa Records).
But also, in Europe, Jörg travels a lot and toured in the spring and autumn of 2017 with his trio, the Vienna Blues Association, through Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Si Wolf Records nos presenta un disco con la denominación de Chicago blues, podemos confiar plenamente en que el resultado será genuino blues de la ciudad del viento. Este es el caso de este álbum del cantante y guitarrista Jörg Danielsen que presenta este trabajo grabado en Buenos Aires con la colaboración de un nutrido grupo de músicos argentinos entre los que destacan Jorge Costales a la armónica, los guitarristas Federico Verteramo, Martin Burguez y Daniel De Vita, Alberto Burguez al piano, Christian Morana al bajo y Germán Pedraza a la batería. El álbum es una buena selección de canciones, la mayoría de ellas compuestas por el propio Danielson, más tres covers de Magic Sam, Morris Holt y Jerry McCain. El grupo suena fresco, compenetrado y solvente con un sonido muy auténtico. En total son catorce temas, uno de ellos cantado en español, que dan forma a un álbum avalado por el sello Wolf Records, con unos músicos que conocen a fondo el terreno en el que pisan para interpretar unas composiciones que según el propio Danielsen destilan buenas dosis de sarcasmo, felicidad, tristeza, cinismo y humor negro. MUY BUENO. 

If Wolf Records introduces an album with the words Chicago blues, we can fully trust the result will be real Windy City blues. This is the case of singer and guitarist Jörg Danielsen who presents this new album recorded in Buenos Aires with the collaboration of a large group of Argentinian musicians like Jorge Costales on harmonica, guitar players Federico Verteramo, Martin Burguez and Daniel De Vita, Alberto Burguez on piano, Christian Morana on bass and Germán Pedraza on drums. The recording gathers a good selection of blues songs, most of them Danielson’s own composition, plus three covers coming from Magic Sam, Morris Holt and Jerry McCain. The group sounds fresh, well teamed and reliable, always displaying a very genuine sound. Fourteen songs, one of them sung in Spanish, give shape to this Wolf Records album, with some musicians who deeply know what is expected of them to perform with solvency a more than interesting songs that, according to Danielsen’s own words, communicate a good dose of sarcastic, happy, sad and cynical black humour. GREAT.
