ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
------

Ghetto Surf recording artist Billy Hector has twice received the
Best Guitarist Award from music critic Bob Makin of the East Coast Rocker who states, "Billy plays with guts and displays some of the best chops you'll see anywhere".

At the 2003 Red Bank Blues Festival, The Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation honored Billy with The Lifetime Achievement Award during the festival he also headlined at. He headlined again at the 2004 festival.

Billy and his roots rockin' band shared billing with Bonnie Raitt at
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's "Tribute to Muddy Waters".

It was the second appearance at the Hall of Fame for Hector. Earlier, he performed at A Tribute to Robert Johnson, backing Sonny Landreth in a performance that was featured in the Robert Johnson documentary film, "Hellhounds on My Trail".

Recognized as a "Living Legend" at the Asbury Park Music Awards, BILLY HECTOR continues to draw upon the history of the blues, while contributing more of his own. He was invited to participate in a historic studio session with Hubert Sumlin and Billy Boy Arnold to record "Juke" for fabled director Martin Scorsese's seven-part series "The Blues".

In June 2004, Billy performed at The Chicago Blues Festival with Hubert Sumlin in
The Howlin' Wolf Tribute Band and also performed with Hubert at The Cape May blues festival.

Fresh off this latest success, Hector returns with his 11th independently-released CD, OUT OF ORDER: The Stone Pony Sessions. OUT OF ORDER is an Enhanced CD featuring a Bonus Video track of "Billy's Blues". The album was recorded at the legendary Stone Pony rock club in Asbury Park, New Jersey 2003. The choice of venue is a fitting one, as its importance in music history matches Hector's own. For 25 years, Hector has done things his way and gained success and worldwide recognition without the benefit of fad or fashion, nor the deep pockets of a major label. His music reflects the true soul of the blues; passionate, moving and dedicated to making an audience dance and sweat.

Hector is one of the best songwriters and performers on the scene, recognized by critics and fans as a modern performer expressing the vibe of classic blues. His latest CD, OUT OF ORDER: The Stone Pony Sessions continues this tradition, with a testament to his skill, showmanship and, most importantly, the music.

The Billy Hector Band includes bass player Winston Roye (Bernie Worrell, Nile Rodgers, Herbie Hancock) and drummer Rich Monica (Popa Chubby, Macy Gray).

Billy began playing guitar almost forty years ago at age nine. His influences include Freddie King, T-Bone Walker, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and many years of listening to a broad band of musical styles. A 1974 Stratocaster is this fret master's main guitar powered by "an old Bassman". For slide work he uses a Telecaster and a Gibson Firebird.

"It is clear that Hector's musicianship and intimate relationship with his instrument elevate his playing to a higher level. You get the feeling he could step out and play like Segovia if he wanted to." Asbury Park Press, 6/5/03

I am listening as I write because I bought the CD last night and I must tell you, Billy's music will be playing for some time now. To knock it off, I played dancer/patron/homage to have the divine opportunity to hear Billy live last night at the Dinosaur, Syracuse, NY! Wow! It's all I can say at this early morning hour. It was like live wires in water! Electricity, so to speak. I was at their beckon call. ............ It was a tremendous experience to take in a show of 3 (three,) that's right, three gifted and wonderful musicians to soothe my soul and wellbeing for a few hours! Even better, musicians with lovely personalities!!! .......... Oh, the CD, yeah, that's right, get it because it's happening! You won't be undersold as it forays a plethora of amazing funky blues music. Kisses to all!! Lots-of-love, ~Cynthia 4 March 2007 ....... PS - Mr. Bass Player, sir, we WILL reconnect somewhere again. Why? Because in this current world of trial and unjust, one so easily recognizes and just feels the good, the real good from the heart. You are my royal precious sweetness. Yes, you were taken away from me for a reason, but we'll meet again. Promise. ::wink:: xx, ~C!

This album rips. Billy is the real deal, raw but smooth. Video advertised on the cd is of very low quality, but the music is great and CD Baby has it for the best price by far that I've found!!! Amazon wanted something like $40?!! yikes. Don't miss out on this NJ local GREAT!
