About the Album

Diving deep into the classic tradition of the organ trio, DC-based guitarist Shawn Purcell celebrates hard-bop heroes Pat Martino, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery and George Benson, while finding plenty of room for the influence from Scofield, Stern, Bernstein and others. Graced with a stylistically wide-ranging, virtuosic fluidity, Purcell blends effortlessly with Pat Bianchi's driving basslines and rich chording, while drummer Jason Tiemann creates an animated, energizing flow, propelling this set of 10 originals, along with Johnny Mandel's classic, "A Time for Love," into the realm of a 'must-have' for those deep into the B3 trio tradition. "The combination of soul and relentless drive is what makes Shawn Purcell’s music so appealing..."  -  Sean Jones
