2009 album from Australia's foremost organ trio, who join the dots between Funk, Soul, Boogaloo and Jazz. The band have taken their home brew of soulful Hammond get-down everywhere from Jazz festivals to after hours bars and clubs. With a musical CV that includes names like Joe Bataan, Alice Russell, The Bamboos and The Quantic Soul Orchestra, it's not surprising this latest CO3B album has generated huge interest. Versatile singer Kylie Auldist opens proceedings on the Deep Funk groove of 'Push It Up' but it is 'This Girl' that provides the mellow, beautiful and incredibly catchy vocal highlight of the entire collection, shimmering horns ride over this laid back, future Deep Soul classic. We don't yet know what Gary Numan will make of CO3B's version of his 80's Synth pop hit 'Cars' but Jake Masons organ playing (including simultaneously supplying the super funky bass lines via his Hammond foot pedals and left hand) takes this track in a direction no one was expecting! 12 tracks.
Personnel: Jake Mason (tenor saxophone, organ); Ross Irwin (trumpet); Georgia Jones (percussion).
Recording information: Melbourne, Australia (2009).
