In the mid 19190s The New York Times named Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart the best organ trio this decade – and since then they have been one of the trios who has truly developed the genre with its solid contibrution.
World class organ trio
Their last recording «Toy tunes» shows a trio still exploring the quiet but still intricate and deep interplay between them decade after decade. And we are speaking about three musicians each in the absolute world elite.
Organist Larry Goldings has been an attractive co-player on the american scene in later years and has played with everything from James Taylor to John Scofield. Drummer Bill Stewart is close something of a drumming legend, perheps most widely known asd a drummer for Chris Potter and for Maceo Parker. Guitarist Peter Bernstein was once described by his teacher Jim Hall as one of the most impressive guitarists he had ever heard.
Luckily for us it is perhaps exactly in this trio theese musicians are at their very best. This afternoon in Storyville will let us hear a swinging set of organ-jazz from what may be the best organ trio in the world.
