This weekend I was blown away by One Man band Bror Gunnar Jansson from Sweden with his version of “Ain’t No Grave (Gonna Hold My Body Down)”. Bror stands out for his rhythmic techniques as a one-man band drummer. His voice is dark, raw edged, and like the delta deep as the soul of the lonesome fields.
Watch the video here below:
Blues and Jazz in his veins
In his Bio online you’ll read that Bror Gunnar Jansson (and yes it’s his real name) “was introduced to the great worlds of music before he even was born. He’s, together with his sister, the fourth generation of musicians in his bloodline. His father is a well renowned bass player who toured with jazz legends such as Chet Baker, Toots Thielemanns and Dexter Gordon” . The blues and Jazz clearly runs in his family!
