The Hitman Blues Band plays modern blues, which can be high energy, slow and soulful, or happy boogie. It’s modern/alternative blues - blues of the 21st century.
The World Moves On, performed by the New York based Hitman Blues Band, contains seven new original songs, one cover (done in the Hitman Blues Band style) and five reworked original songs. These reworked tunes have the Hitman Blues Band horn section added, and have been remixed and remastered.
The players feature such luminaries as Kevin Bents (Spin Doctors, Boz Scaggs, Phoebe Snow), Bernard “Pretty” Purdie (Aretha Franklin, Steely Dan, B.B. King, Joe Cocker – to name just a few), Bobby Forrester (Ruth Brown, Lena Horne), Ray Alexander (George Shearing, Stan Getz, Mel Torme), and Richard Crooks (Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen), to name a few.
