Adam Scone, better known as the organist of the Sugarmen 3, presents his first jazz CD under his own name. He assembles a quartet, which contains besides the classical jazz organ trio (organ/drums/guitar) an alto sax.
Adam's playing is characterized by a warm tone. No quick-tempered hot organ blows off one's ear. A clear guidance of melody and vivid solos alternate. The Leslie is used sparingly.

This way of playing apply nearly all titles of this CD, they are Adam's own compositions. One tune only (Get Salty) was composed by the saxophon player. Here, the quartet plays hot and groovy, you feel the organ sound of a Jimmy Smith.
However, a greater idol for Adam seems to have been Freddie Roach, as he dedicates Freddie a tune calles Reach for Roach.
