“Blind Arthur” is the lead single from the self-released Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead. It sits on a down note, a commentary on the struggle to get ahead today in the United States. Fittingly, then, “Blind Arthur” is a standard eight-bar blues. Charlie Hunter brings his signature jazzy style to the track, making the song a smooth, meditative blues that he says was inspired by one of his favorite guitarists, Blind Blake. Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead, a Hunter collaboration with drummer Scott Amendola, comes out October 2. Download “Blind Arthur” below.
