With Hammond B3 trios, it’s all about the song selection, and the team of Jeff Jenkins/B3-synth, Mike Abbott/g and Mike Marlier/dr, the choice of Jimi Hendrix is a clever one. The team hits hard on rocking versions of pieces like “Purple Haze”, with Marlier digging in with a heavy backbeat on “Manic Depression”. Abbott gives a sleek solo intro before handing off the baton to Jenkins on a delightful take of “Little Wing” while giving some searing Chicago blues on a South Sider “Etched In Stones” and giving some wacka wooka to Marlier’s high hat on “Fire”. The team gives a tribute to the left handed ax icon with a dramatic and passionate original of “Jimi”. This trio is experienced!
