So we’re going to be hosting The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio at the Fur Peace Ranch on August 20, 2022 and the good news for me is that I’ll be back from the Tuna/Little Feat Tour in time to experience this show. I’ve been a huge organ trio fan starting with Jimmy Smith back in the 50’s. In 1962 I bought Brother Jack McDuff’s Screamin’ on the Prestige Label. Now, Screamin’ is a quartet not a trio. It features among other people Kenny Burrell on guitar. Great record. Anyway, fast forward to the present, which is all we have… right?
As an artist who plays in a trio much of the time, I love trios. There’s no place to hide. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts and no one is dispensable. Delvonn Lamarr and his cohorts get it done big time, and we have them right here in Meigs County at our Fur Peace Station. To borrow some copy from The American Songwriter, “It’s impossible to avoid using some keywords when labeling the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio’s instrumental sound. The adjectives funk, soul, jazz, and even psychedelic, appear in almost every review tagging the three-piece’s approach. Regardless of the repetition, all are accurate descriptions trying to move the reader closer to the deep, often intense groove these guys effortlessly craft on the album and especially live.”
With a trio like this one with Delvon Lamarr, Jimmy James and Daniel Weiss you will get to hear three extraordinary cats working without a net and filling the room with funk and magic!
Don’t miss this one!
I’ll be there!
