The Deep Blue Organ Trio is one of jazz’s best kept secrets. In my opinion, they are deserving of much wider recognition as a group. Their new album Wonderful, which is a tribute to Stevie Wonder, has quickly become one of my favorite albums! I can’t stop smiling whenever I put it on! The trio consists of Chris Foreman on the B3 Organ, Greg Rockingham on the drums, and internationally acclaimed guitarist Bobby Broom. This group has more soul combined than almost any other group you can imagine, and consequently the album is super accessible to all audiences. Even people who don’t think they like jazz music will dig this album!
Chicago’s jazz scene is one of the world’s finest, and yet it doesn’t seem to get nearly as much attention as a New York or Los Angeles. The Deep Blue Organ Trio showcases some of Chicago’s incredible talent. Bobby Broom, the group’s internationally famous jazz superstar, came to prominence on the international scene playing with Sonny Rollins, and Chris Foreman and Greg Rockingham are a perfect fit for playing with the soulful Bobby Broom.
This album is toe-tapping good through and through! The album features tasty renditions of tunes such as Chaka Khan’s Tell Me Something Good (which Stevie Wonder actually wrote), My Cheri Amour (with Chris Foreman’s tasty quote of Ribbon in the Sky at the end of the tune) and Golden Lady. I couldn’t recommend this album more highly. Every jazz fan should have this album in their collection!
