Organissimo at Founders Brewery 11/13
Organissimo is a local/regional jazzy jam-flavored trio that has sparked excitement with audiences since day one. Thursday night proved no exception as Organissmo's players enticed dancers of all stripes to take to the floor at the downtown Grand Rapids brewery. Playing selections from their catalog of three CDs, Organissimo performed straight ahead organ trio jazz material interspersed with their own extended play jams, much to the delight of the faithful in attendance. Organissimo's newest CD, Groovadelphia (pictured) was most recently in the Top 30 spins at listener-supported WNMC radio in Traverse City MI. Based on the work already produced, a well-spring of talent and ideas, I suggest that we may have only begun to scratch the surface of what these players have in store.
