We had B-3 extraordinaire Joe Doria in the house again for Jazz in The Georgian on Saturday, February 23. This was the second time in as many months that Joe has brought his hard swinging feel and unmistakable B-3 organ sound to The Georgian at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel. See the post of his first session last month in January. Again, Joe and I really hit it off musically and personally. It was just a blast playing tunes with Joe. It isn't too often you see a B-3 and bass duo combination. B-3 players usually kick left hand bass absent a bassist. But, there is a synergy and chemistry that Joe and I seem to have that brings out a unique and fun performance together. He'll be making regular appearances here in the times to come.
Got a couple good videos from the gig. The first one is a great Cole Porter tune called All of You. The second tune is a Joe Zawinul classic called Mercy Mercy Mercy. We were getting funky on this one. Got some drums and beats going on sans the drums...you'll see! This is organic groove. No artificial flavoring, no MSG, no artificial sweeteners, no aspartame, no pesticides, no GMO, no sequencer. Enjoy!
All of You
