They all purport to be fine, upstanding, law-abiding citizens, but collectively, Katvanger offers up a suspect rendition of the blues, revealing undocumented encounters with disreputable elements from far-flung parts of the globe. Bass player Ruud Fransen, who claims to have retired from the teaching profession, and guitarist Jan Vereçki, a part-time IT tinkerer with an extensive collection of off-brand stringed instruments, accompany singer and guitar player Jim Wake, whose whisky-tinged voice belies his claims of a comfortable middle-class upbringing. That they sing of pain, betrayal and abandonment cannot really be so surprising. But Katvanger does manage to surprise, with an extensive repertoire of originals full of irony as well as harmony, and equal portions of sarcasm and swing. Apart from dubious blues, Katvanger features slightly twisted roots, counterfeit country & western, improbable jazz, and on occasion, an obscure cover. All completely above-board, but beware: the music can be infectious.
