New Vintage Tunes for the Hammond Organ is perhaps a first for Australian Jazz - an album of entirely original material performed by an organ trio. The 10 tracks (and 2 bonus tracks), composed by Darren, run the gamut of the jazz spectrum in style. Swing, Funk, Boogaloo, Ballads & Blues all get a workout here, and while Darren's influences may be evident to Hammond fans, the music is undeniably original and fresh.
Produced by legendary US organist Tony Monaco during a visit to Australia, the album was recorded over two days by engineer Richard Belkener. Liner notes written by New York organist Pat Bianchi.
Personnel: Darren Heinrich: Hammond B3, with Steve Brien: Guitar, Andrew Dickeson: Drums, or: Simon Relf: Guitar, Tim Firth: Drums.
