Let one more myth die quickly; you don't have to be American to play the blues. Theessink helps us realize how wealthy our American musical heritage truly is - via Vienna! The arrangements are sparse but very rich in dynamics and highlights his emotional directness and superb phrasing in both his guitar playing and vocal delivery. Theessink has a total grasp on the loping, pulsing rhythm that propels classic Delta blues. One man, one guitar.
