Gregory Lewis: Organ Monk Blue

Read "Organ Monk Blue" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Organist Gregory Lewis gained the nickname “Organ Monk" due to his specialization in the music of Thelonious Monk. Known for his exaggerated, florid playing, this is the third CD he's done of Monk's music and this time he has teamed up with a musician who can match him flourish for flourish, chameleon guitarist Marc Ribot.

Hart, Scone & Albin: Leading The British Invasion

Read "Leading The British Invasion" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The British are coming, the British are coming! No, not the Redcoats with rifles or tide-shifting rock royalty like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and the like. This time, it's the might and music of the English songstress that's landing stateside.

Hart, Scone & Albin: Leading The British Invasion

Read "Leading The British Invasion" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The Hammond organ trio called Hart, Scone & Albin open up Leading the British Invasion by biting into “Rehab," from the songbook of the late British vocalist, Amy Winehouse. The tune--already dripping soul in its original edition--drips some, with the trio's muscular and propulsive approach.

The British Invasion the trio addresses throughout the set ...

Gregory Lewis: Organ Monk Blue

Read "Organ Monk Blue" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

After forays into other material, including the poignant The Breathe Suite (Self Produced, 2017) about recent racial injustices ...

Steve Slagle: Dedication

Read "Dedication" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Steve Slagle is one of those players that's often overlooked yet hard to forget. Why this sixty-five-year-old saxophonist who's constantly bringing energy and a spirit of exploration to the fore doesn't get the ink or marquees that come to his musical peers ten years his senior or several decades his junior is something of a head-scratcher. ...
