Description

Funk trombone master Fred Wesley teams up with two young musicians for a vital organ groove trio.

It was supposed to be a one night affair. A French promoter had assembled international top musicians to pay homage to the late great organist Jimmy Smith. In one combination the elder statesman of the Funk trombone Fred Wesley met two young musicians who could be his son and grandson: British drummer Tony Match and the new Hammond star Leonardo Corradi from Italy. The chemistry was just right and the three of them decided to keep on performing as a unit. After several succesful tours which took them throughout Europe they finally release a live-CD and with Generations they have found a very fitting band name. The repertoire features besides tunes from Jimmy Smith classics from the Blue Note mid -sixties era by the likes of Lee Morgan. Fred Wesley´s most famous tune House Party finds a jazzy new setting. Relaxed, spirited and extremely groovy and if you want to test your friends: most likely they will think is is a very good live recording from the sixties.
