Album Notes
Since 2012, the SpeakEZ Lounge in Grand Rapids has hosted a Jazz Jam every Sunday night. The emcee and house drummer for the jam is none other than organissimo's Randy Marsh, so naturally organissimo performs there often.

Over the last few years, the band has documented these performances using a professional multi-track recording system. Originally these recordings were meant for organissimo's crowdfunding patrons as a bonus 'thank you' for their support. But in listening to the performances, the band decided they should be heard by more people.

Live At The SpeakEZ is in many ways a throwback to the days of the jazz clubs that dotted mid-century cities across America. It's where soul jazz and Hammond organ based jazz was nurtured and thrived, bringing jazz to the people at the local bar. In many ways, Live At The SpeakEZ is a continuation of recordings like Groove Holmes' Living Soul (recorded live at Count Basie's club in NYC), Johnny 'Hammond' Smith's Black Coffee (recorded live at the Monterey Club in New Haven, CT), and Jimmy Smith's Groovin' At Small's Paradise (recorded at the club of the same name in NYC). It captures organissimo in the moment, playing for the people, feeding off the energy of the audience, and just having a good time. And that's what music should be about!
