Great Musical Conversation
I’ve had the pleasure of listening to these three fine musicians in clubs and on record for many years now. Those performances and projects always involved other players. The Wayne De La Cruz / Pamela Rose effort, Hammond Organ Party! comes to mind. But The Lucky Lady is the first time I have heard these guys play as a classic organ trio.

Wow!! Knowing the talent, I expected something special but The Lucky Lady surpasses even my highest expectations. Great musicians do not always a great musical conversation make, but these guys were more than on the same page when they laid down these tracks. They were on the same word, the same letter.

Wayne’s organ, whether jumping or strutting, strolling or slinking, is always right on the money. When the tune calls for light and airy, he is there. Funky and soulful, he’s got it covered. His playing is a thing of beauty, but so is his writing. The tunes are cool and catchy. Like Wayne’s playing, the songs cover a lot of different terrain but make for a very interesting, very satisfying musical journey.

Jeff’s guitar work is the very definition of jazzy: crisp, clean, and clear. It’s what he does. His solos, whether following on something from Wayne or showing the way for the other two, are perfect. And the chords he lays down behind Wayne’s solos are absolutely complementary to the lead line. No “You do your thing and I’ll do mine” and maybe it will work. It works! Period!

For me, the best surprise on The Lucky Lady has to be Kent’s drumming. Don’t get me wrong, he has always been steady behind the kit. And first and foremost a drummer should be steady. Of all the drummers I know Kent might be the steadiest. Here, as always, he is completely steady, but with a whole lot of flair, a sweet touch, and some brilliant cleverness that I’ve not heard from him before this. It was fun to hear.

The Lucky Lady is a whole lot of great music from three instrumental masters. It is also proof that the classic organ trio is alive and well. To listen in on a fantastic musical conversation, pick up this recording.
