“… non-stop energy…” – JazzTimes
Pamela Rose – of Wild Women of Song – and Hammond B-3 ace Wayne De La Cruz debut music from their new CD, Hammond Organ Party, with a stellar line up of Bay Area musicians, including the masterful talents of Charles McNeal on saxophone, Jeff Massanari on guitar, and Kent Bryson on drums. Together, Rose’s soulful singing and De La Cruz’s inspired keyboard wizardry lifts the Hammond Organ Party into the stratosphere of swinging jazz standards and classic R&B grooves. From the bluesy swing of the Isley’s Nobody But Me to the melodic strains of Harry Warren’s September In The Rain, to the funky shuffle of Little Walter’s My Babe, the Hammond Organ Party brings it all back home.
