Big Bad Sun
 
"Big Bad Sun" - Traditional in nature, contemporary in sound, Chris Juergensen's Big Bad Sun is a bold departure from the blues you may be familiar with. Passionate guitar playing, good story telling plus crystalline production makes this CD destined to become a true, modern day, blues classic. Beautifully rendered and performed, guitar lovers will want to make this CD a part of their everyday collection.
 
"Chris is a phenomenal talent head to toe. 'Big Bad Sun' unleashes an unabashed dirty low down blues side of him that has you stompin' your feet to a killer variety of grooves. And prepare to stand back as the guitar speaks to you, alternatively ripping your head off and then caressing you." - Jennifer Batten
 
"Another beautiful cd from Chris Juergensen. This recording has a serious blues vibe. Chris sings and plays his ass off on this one." - Mike Stern.
