Hammond Jazz and Funk Groove

PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone)

The magic ingredient on iconic sounds from the 50s right up to current star Cory Henry of Snarky Puppy, the Hammond groove cuts like a canyon through Soul, Jazz and Funk in the work of genre-defining artists such as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, George Benson,  Booker-T,  Junior Walker, Grover Washington, The Crusaders, George Duke, Steely Dan and many more.

Rod Pooley’s ‘The Drawtones: Hammond Groove’ creatively explores this lineage without being a mere carbon copy. All of them artists in their own right, the members of the outfit bring their own energy, fun and funk to the table! Alongside organ maestro Rod, the frontliner Julian Nicholas’s reputation precedes him as a saxophone colossus, and Andy Williams was resident guitarist at the original PizzaExpress Dean Street jazz club for many years. Jessica Dann and Daniel Dotorstoke the boiler on drums and bass respectively.
