Description
(2013 Grammy Nominee for Best Blues Album) New Orleans–style horns and the slide guitars of Bill Sims Jr. and Junior Mack are but two of the key elements on this pungently rootsy collection, which ranges from the a cappella prison song "Go Down, Hannah" to a percussion/voice/tuba arrangement of "C-Line Woman," sung by Chaney Sims, to a stomping, sanctified version of "Get Right, Church," to the extended closer, which evolves "Hard Times" from acoustic blues to a brassy, jazzy climax.

"Features old blues material given a serious jolt of modernist energy, but without sacrificing any of the original character. The Heritage Blues Orchestra are like a more potent Carolina Chocolate Drops, their basic guitar, harmonica and handclap grooves given further colour and character by bustling drums and the inventive horn arrangements of French saxist Bruno Wilhelm. Their potent thump, twang and honk injects wallop into Son House's 'Clarksdale Moan' and a fast, hard-rolling feel to Muddy Waters's 'Catfish Blues'. Elsewhere, railroad shuffles, swampy slide-guitar throbs, gospel call-and-response chants and a reggae-like take on Rosco Gordon's jump-blues are applied. The results are never less than infectious."—The Independent
