today we released this EP on our new sub label
KR 601 – Jan Mittendorp – Baritone Jazz 1 EP
About ten years ago guitar player Jan Mittendorp changed from regular guitar to baritone guitar. That way he could combine bass guitar parts with lead guitar parts . You can hear the result on more then hundred tracks that he recorded since 2008 with a.o. Boo Boo Davis, Tangled Eye, BLu ACiD and ElectroBluesSociety.
Recently he also re-discovered a lot of jazz standards from his time at Hilversum Conservatorium in the 1980’s. This is how they sound now on baritone guitar together with some electronic stuff in the back.
Released digital and available on all download and streaming platforms.
KUVVER RECORDS is a brand new label – a subsidiary of blues specialists Black and Tan Records. The aim of the new imprint is to release new, refreshing cover versions of well-known blues classics… and the tune they’ve chosen for the first release is certainly that – ‘St James Infirmary’.
The artist chosen to present this new take is veteran blues guitarist JAN MITTENDORP and he gives the familiar a fresh, electro instrumental treatment that complements the sadness and despair inherent in the tune and its message.
We created a new sub label called KuvVer Records. This label is specially set up to release cover versions of well known songs from all kind of styles. Our first release is
KR 600 – Jan Mittendorp – St James Infirmary
Recently I started re-visiting songs that I haven’t played for years. Here is my current version from one of the first jazz/blues songs that I ever played on a guitar (apr 45 years ago). It’s an instrumental version of this classic song with a touch of electro.
