Mit grammy-nominierten! Album “and still I rise”

Nominiert für einen Grammy und zwei Blues Music Awards das Heritage Blues Orchestra gehörte zu den grossen Bluesüber- raschungen des vergangenen Jahres. Ob im Trio, im Quartett oder gar als kleine Big Band mit Bläser, die Truppe um Bill Sims Jr. seiner Tochter Chaney und den charismatischen Gitarristen Junior Mack hat eine frische und überzeugende Formel gefunden, um die akustische Blues-Tradition weiterzupflegen, mit modernen Jazz anzureichern und kompetent und relevant in die heutige Zeit zu transzendieren. Die Live-Auftritte sind einzigartig und ansteckend!

The grit of low-down country and urban blues with the bold brass of New Orleans; the hand-clapping fervor of gospel punctuated with fiery postmodern, jazz-infused horn arrangements; the haunting cries of work songs and pulsating drums that reach back to the real roots of it all. You’ll journey across the Middle Passage, be driven down Highway 49 from Clarksdale to New Orleans, go from chain gangs and juke joints to orchestra pits, church pews and even back porches. HBO’s music is an inspiring testament to the enduring power, possibilities and boundless beauty of African-American music.

“…a crack band that manages to seamlessly blend old-style blues with modern jazz leanings to create blues that are rooted in tradition but are still uniquely relevant to today.” (And Still I Rise received their Highest Rating 10.) — Blues in Britain

“With various influences from the blues canvas, The Heritage Blues Orchestra brings a whole new dimension to country blues.”

— Blues Magazine
“Joyous and fresh…an infectious, bold exploration of the blues, R&B, and Americana delivered with passion and soul.” — about.com
