Claes Janson

Claes Janson has always been one of my favorite singers. I first heard him in Öhman Organ Grinders when I started listening to organ jazz.

We have worked together in different ways over the years. The first time was in 2002, I think. The last couple of years Claes has made some collaborations with Arnesen Bluesband – a B B King trubute and on his latest record.

Now we also have a duo, just with the Hammond and vocals.
