Reviews

"Olson managed a delicate blend of the grim boogie blues of John Lee Hooker, 
the wistful introspection of Bob Seger and the raw urgency of early
Bob Dylan..."
 Joel Selvin-San Francisco CHRONICLE

"Few local performers (in any idiom) enjoy the loyalty and attention he
attracts..."
Paul Cantrell-NEW TIMES WEEKLY/Phoenix

"Hans Olson has long been one of the Valleys finest Blues musicians." 
"Speaking or singing, it's quality entertainment..."
Diane Jordan-WHERE IT'S HOT/Phoenix

"Phoenix musician, Hans Olson, stepped in for the best three song set
you'll ever hear..." 
Joe Rassenfoss-ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS Denver

"Among the pleasent surprises at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Denver) was
the guitar and mouth harp work of Hans Olson, a first drawer picker and
chucker from Phoenix. 
At 20 minutes his set was too short, but there is no reason he won't be
heard from again..." 
Pat McGraw-DENVER POST

"Known as the Patriarch of Phoenix Blues..."  
Robbie Sherwood-THE VOICE/Glendale community College newspaper

"Dedicated blues master...Olson is a superb guitarist and is blessed with
a rich, resonant,deep baritone voice, he plays (harmonica) easily and
beautifully...a far broader musical personality than is usually found
among folk-blues blowers..."
Phillip Elwood-San Francisco EXAMINER

"Best solo act we've ever seen..."     
Pat and Barbara McDonald of TIMBUK 3 as quoted 
in NEW TIMES WEEKLY/Phoenix

"The honorable Hans Olson's SOLO tape is just like most of his musical
efforts: above and beyond the call of duty!"...Hans Olson's band put out
some killer, flat out, smokin' Boogie.
I swear it was better than anything I've ever heard at the Sun Club. They
would have truly given Z.Z. Top a run for their money that night..."
Ron Noah-SOUNDBOARD/Phoenix

"An Arizona legend..."     Virgina Parra-FAST LANE/Phoenix

"Every big city has one: a venerable Bluesman who's been around forever
and is invariably taken for granted on his home turf.
  Anyone who's spent a monsoon season or two in the desert can tell you
the old man of the mountain in these parts is Olson...
  ...1987 Best Bluesman..."
NEW TIMES WEEKLY 10th annual "BEST OF PHOENIX" issue



"Incredible Blues harpist, particularly considering he plays with a
rack..."
FRETS magazine NOTEWORTHY section

"Olson is good, damn good, and he deserves some recognition...Olson
excelled at his warm-up job and had several people dancing in the
aisles...the standing ovation he received was not a token..."        
Dave Morris PRESS ENTERPRISE Bloomsburg PA

"Local Bluesmaster...The delivery is pure Hans Olson and that's saying
plenty..."
Sandy Lovejoy KNIX radio COUNTRY SPIRIT magazine

"Hans Olson's gritty Blues style has placed him alongside of some of the
best in the business over his 25 year career..."
Peter Holmes TUCSON WEEKLY

"It's no revelation to say that Hans Olson is one of the best solo Blues
artists in the country...Olson's performances (on his "SOLO" album) are
superb...The emotional commitment is evident..." 
 Andrew Means ARIZONA REPUBLIC

"Seated in a chair and pounding his legs in time, Olson blew a harmonica
hung from his neck in a rack, strummed and plucked an acoustic guitar and
made it ring like the proverbial bell.  He chiseled individual notes on
the harmonica with surgical precision... It was his tough but tender,
dark and smokey voice that served as the jewel in this setting. He
wrapped his voice around lyrics, biting off words with uncommon rhythm
and timing. 
Olson makes no concessions to current trends in the music scene... a
straight forward performer who stands before an audience by himself with
ease..."
Joel Selvin SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"It's not that Hans Olson is a Bluesman--even though he is. It's not that
he's more or less "authentic" than somebody else--even though he is. 
 It's not even that he's an Arizonan, where you get to invent your own
Blues against a wide blue sky, in the dry desert air. 
It's the authority that he owns, that he's given himself, that was given
to him.
The desert has that kind of authority but it's boring to listen to...Hans
isn't."
MICHELLE SHOCKED

"Up to now Hans Olson has been more of a musician's musician than a
household name...
First you'll notice the deep resonance in Olson's vocals...He is an
outstanding harmonica player...Try to remember the first time you heard
"MUSIC FROM BIG PINK" or George Thorogood's "ONE SCOTCH, ONE BOURBON, ONE
BEER", the impact of Olson's music on me was the same..."             
RECOMMENDED TRACKS/GAVIN REPORT

"Hans is one of the least pretentious artists I've worked with. His music
is simple, earthy and basic, with a certain human quality that seems to
touch anyone who hears it. He has an incredible voice; rough and gritty
but somehow conveying a tender quality in the person behind the voice...
Enjoy it. It's real..."
WILLIAM EDWARD COMPTON Phoenix DJ
