Since their appearance in the world of jazz, Hammond organ, guitar and drum ensembles have become one of the genres most popular line-ups. By the 1990s, The New York Times was already calling this all-star group the best of the organ trios. And now, they're giving their first performance in Hungary at Müpa Budapest.
The individual professional careers of Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart have been so significant that each of their names is featured in the name of the group. The Boston-born Goldings has recorded 13 albums as a band leader, eight of them with this trio. His name may be familiar to many because he is one of the most active Hammond organ players: he's been invited to play with such jazz musicians as Jim Hall, Michael Brecker and Pat Metheny. In 2007, he was nominated for a ...Grammy Award along with partners John Scofield and Jack DeJohnette. He is in high demand even outside the jazz genre: his playing can be heard on albums by such performers as Elton John, Hugh Laurie, John Mayer, Beck, Tracy Chapman, Sia, India.Arie and De La Soul.
Peter Bernstein is a defining figure on the cutting edge of traditional jazz guitar playing. He is a standard bearer of the musical direction represented by Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Kenny Burrell. Each of them has played in an organ trio line-up, so it's no accident that he was chosen as a member of this triad.
Bill Stewart is one of the most versatile drummers of our age. It would be impossible to list all the names he's played with, but Michael Brecker, John Scofield, Joshua Redman and jazz legend Lee Konitz are certainly among the most important for him. Their latest album Toy Tunes, which they are now bringing to Budapest, was recently recorded live at the citadel of jazz, the Smalls Jazz Club.
