Gregor Hilden, who has been active in the scene for over 15 years and is meanwhile an integral part of the lovely German blues landscape, proves that authentic blues need not only come from New Orleans, but can also be produced in Münster/Westphalia. The trade magazine "Gitarre und Bass" devoted a feature article to him that indicated the influence of Peter Green and Larry Carlton and gave his music epithets such as "economical, flexible and elegant". The description is highly appropriate for Hilden's music, a mixture of soul, blues and swing. Gregor Hilden is not a "mass player", but he lovingly cultivates each single note that he coaxes from his Zemaitis guitar. His phrasing is lean and yet highly cultured, and thus he celebrates both traditional and modern blues 'n jazz licks with great verve. Fans of authentic Vintage guitar sounds will be especially taken by Gregor Hilden's CDs, for he is inclined to generate an honest sound situated between pearly-clear and slightly-rough. And he insists in capturing these tonal qualities in the studio without adding dynamic changes or effects.
