Peter Nande - Jelly Bean Baby - California Sessions Vol.2

  Peter Nande is back from another sojourn to Southern California, U.S.A., with a brand new batch of stories to tell on his new CD, Jelly Bean Baby: California Sessions Vol. II.

Jelly Bean Baby is Nande’s second CD recording in three years under the guidance of California-based producer and blues artist James Harman. Like its predecessor, Big Boy Boogie: California Sessions Vol. I (2006), it features original, danceable tunes based in the propulsive rhythms and tonal vocabulary of American blues and Caribbean music, with some jazzy touches added for good measure.

Jelly Bean Baby builds on the foundation that Nande laid with Big Boy Boogie, which was nominated for Danish Blues Album of the Year by the Danish Blues Awards in 2007 and factored substantially in Nande’s acknowledgement as Danish Blues Musician of the Year for 2007 by the Copenhagen Blues Festival.

Nande wrote or co-wrote all but one of the 13 songs on Jelly Bean Baby. With James Harman’s mentoring, Nande has learned that the best blues songs tell stories, often with an ironic twist, of the consequences of human desire. Listen, for example, to the cautionary tale “Beware Brother,” set to an irresistible, laid-back shuffle. “It’s rough being a prisoner in your own life,” Nande explains, in reference to the character in the song. “All your friends see it, but you’re lookin’ from inside the eye of the hurricane, trapped in an open-ended, goin’-nowhere, dead-end relationship and can’t see what’s happening.”

On these tracks, you’ll find laid-back, cool grooves that are easy to dance and listen to. You’ll find lots of air and space in the songs, and musicians playing to the songs and playing together, not trying to show off… well, maybe just a little,” Nande says, with a laugh.

Three years after he set out to realize his dream of recording with American blues musicians, Nande’s journey is ongoing. He’s already learned plenty, however, including the value of surrounding himself with talented musicians who share his passion for blues. The songs on Jelly Bean Baby, primarily, are Nande’s; he wrote or co-wrote all but one. However, Nande is the first to say that the songs on Jelly Bean Baby came to fruition only under the care of this entire ensemble.
