Bluesin' With The B3 - Featuring Ken Lovern

On this cookin' CD, "Bluesin' With The B3," Wayne Goins gets his chance to swing over the smokin' grooves of the jazz organist Ken Lovern, a first-class cooker from Kansas City. The classic organ trio is wailing on this one, and Goins pulls out all the stops as he spares no one from his flashy guitar chops. Lovern, along with tasty drummer Ian Sikora, create a duo that provides serious support as the trio burns its way through seven classic blues and jazz numbers, including the Jimmy Smith staples "Blues For J" and "Back at The Chicken Shack." The CD also includes the timeless jazz standards, "All The Things You Are," "Blue Bossa," and "In A Sentimental Mood." Also thrown in for good measure is the greasy blues tune, "Soupbone," as well as the seriously funky jam in John Scofield's "A GoGo," the heaviest groove tune on the album. Jazz organ lovers are in for a real treat with this entire CD, and all guitarists-whether their on the blues or jazz side of swing-will thoroughly enjoy the sound of Goins' guitar licks as they percolate over the fire of Ken Lovern's flaming fingers. An enthusiastic crowd sets the tone from start to finish on this live jam session that ranks among the best jazz organ trio albums ever recorded.
