Wil Blades is revered as one of the essential torchbearers for the Hammond B-3 organ-jazz tradition (not to mention for the Clavinet, as well). Scott Amendola is one of the rare drummers whose pure groove is in the pocket, yet simultaneously and delightfully angular and skewed. Add guitarist Jeff Parker of Tortoise and saxophonics visionary Skerik, and you have a group that reveals itself in new and explosively colorful ways with each tune played.
