America has always been fascinated by the popular music exported back to us by our neighbors from across the pond. Perhaps most prominent was an oddly coiffed quartet of lads from Liverpool who simultaneously horrified parents and changed music (and hairstyles) forever. T
he British invasion of the 1960s has profoundly influenced music in every decade leading to the present. Our invaders are the feminine kind, each exhibiting an abundance of passion, grit, and soul. Included in our collection are some of today's most huge hit makers who, not unlike the invaders from the 1960s, are heavily steeped in the classic forms of American music - Blues, Soul, R&B and Rock and Roll.

! We have assembled the quintessential American ensemble, the organ trio, to interpret these songs. My collaborators are new - Adam Scone - we recently started playing music together when Adam relocated from New York to South Florida; and old - Rudy Petschauer - with whom I logged countless hours on the road with as a member of organist Jack McDuff’s group. The like-mindedness of the trio was apparent from the first time we played together.
Swinging, soulful, funky, it’s all there.
