HERITAGE BLUES BAND - AND STILL I RISE [IMPORT]

$49.98


The group carries us over the main highways and big-
city streets as well as the dusty back roads of the American south while weaving its way
to the crossroads where Blues and the roots of early Jazz were born.
H.B.O. draws its sound from field hollers, work songs, spirituals, soaring gospel voices
and the hard-driving rhythms of the deep Blues from the delta and the hill country of
northern Mississippi.
The group is driven by three voices, two guitars, drums/percussion, harmonica and a fiery four piece horn section (tuba, 2 trumpets, trombone, saxophone).
Spotlighting male and female voices, bold brassy sounds of New Orleans as well as
modern jazz horn sounds and a heavy back beat, H.B.O. serves up a powerful and
compelling new take on America's Blues heritage. With an emphasis on musical
exploration, Heritage Blues Orchestra digs into innovative musical territory making a
unique and exhilarating contribution to the African-American musical canvas.
You'll recognize this group as something breathtakingly new even as old African-
American musical traditions rise up to meet you.
Heritage Blues Orchestra is perhaps the most exciting African-American roots group to
come along in a very long time. Even as you sense just how heavily steeped the group
is in tradition, you'll marvel at how boldly they march into the musical land of the new
and nameless brassy sounds of New Orleans as well as modern jazz horn sounds and a
