Brad Shepik Trio: Places You Go        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  April 8, 2008

Describing this type of instrumentation as unusual reveals a severe lack of knowledge of the jazz organ tradition: trios of Hammond-B3 organ, guitar, and drums are as old as the use of the instrument in jazz, going back to Wild Bill Davis (on the swing side) and Jimmy Smith (on the bop side of the ... more
