Music Inspiration: Studying and playing with the masters in NYC, listening to old records and learning the music by ear. Huge fan of the Organ Trio. The session got booked with Skerik, and Delvon Lamarr, and at the time Delvon was touring heavily. We have about a weeks notice, and I wrote the album. Inspiration was in the air I guess.
Artist Statement: This was one of those effortless sessions. The players are all fantastic and it was a good olde time. Mel the engineer, her husband, Mamadu, cooked us some amazing food, and we knocked it out in about two days. The hardest part was getting Delvon's Organ down the muddy hill in the rain. Them things are heavy!
