Album Notes
This CD features Hammond organ master Greg Hatza, guitarist Mike Pavone, and drummer Marty Morrison on saxophonist Fraize's original compositions. A variety of grooves and styles are represented on the album: the funky title cut, the straight-ahead and latin-inflected burner "Rawer Than Dinner," the blues shuffle "Soloman's House Of Freaks," the gospel-tinged ballad "Cradle Rocked," the modernistic take on Rhythm Changes "Rhythm Schtick," the soul-jazz vibe of "Brain's," the Larry Young/Woody Shaw-inspired "Young One," and the rollicking country-funk flavor of the closing track "Fish (This Big)."

Sean B. and the Reviewer Team

Wide variety of Jazz music
Peter Fraize's latest album is called "Organic Matter" and is an album that features a tight knit cast of players (Hammond organist, a guitarist, and a drummer) all playing with Fraize and his saxophone, on his original compositions that are of a wide variety of Jazz songs. "Soloman's House of Freaks" is an almost toe-tapping blues shuffle, in which the drums, organ, and guitar hold down the beat while the saxophone does the singing. "Brain’s" is a unique jazzy number, with talented musical timing, that portrays a very modern take on using soulful sounds. "Fish (This Big)" is a song that incorporates a little bit of the jam-band sounds, in a song that is both jazz and rock like and really packs a punch. Overall, this is a distinctive album with its primary use of the Hammond organ as well as the saxophone to create songs that are an amalgam of both past and modern Jazz. If a collection of funky and truly talented jazz grooves sounds like something you would enjoy, then pick up "Organic Matter" by Peter Fraize.
