His phrasing is lean and yet highly cultured, and thus he celebrates both traditional and modern blues’n jazz licks with great verve.

Hilden has already performed in introductory programs for Rory Gallagher, Albert Collins and Jerry Lee Lewis, he was a special guest on a Joe Jackson tour and played in the band of the American sax legend Big Jay Neely.
