about

A chance encounter and a shared love of this special kind of music lead Steve Gadd, known for his collaboration with Paul Simon, Steely Dan and Eric Clapton among others, to join forces with saxophone player Michael Blicher and Hammond organ player Dan Hemmer in 2014.

The band has toured all over Europe and Scandinavia twice and this second album was recorded live in Germany, England, and Denmark during their 2016 tour. These recordings has captured the amazingly charming live energy from four hardswingin' late-night shows in some of Europes best intimate jazz-clubs and Blicher, Hemmer, and Gadd swings with vividness on this brilliant live set that has an engagingly punchy sense of detail and soulfullness and the audience responds ecstatically.

This album is with no doubt a unique opportunity to experience one of the world's most innovative and highly regarded drummers unfold his talent, playing a kind of music he is very most passionate about – organtrio souljazz. The album contains original music by Michael Blicher and the blues-classic "My Babe" and and the spiritual "Elijah Rock".

"Omara" will be released on february 15th 2018, which will kick-off the bands release-tour, that will bring the band to Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan.
