Christian Eckert, guitar
Gary Versace, Hammond B3 organ
Matt Jorgensen, drums
Christian's trio takes up the traditional organ trio in its best bop manner. What differs this group from so many others, is its ability for a deep impression, a certain tenderness in its play, combined with swing and groove. This is a rare combination.
All the three of this trio correspond to this impression: the guitar with wonderful runs, sounding light weighted like a feather rocking gently in the wind; the organ not powerful, but clear with fine soloes; the drums supporting the swing without being insistent.
This CD with standards as well as compositions of Christian is really worth listened to.
