STOP PRESS : This is actually the album launch of the new "Jeremy Sawkins Organ Quartet" JazzTrack recording. The band has changed their name to "The Jeremy Sawkins Organ Quartet", but I had already created this event and i couldn't bring myself to change the great name to a boring name just because they switched drummers. I don't even think they did switch drummers.
The last time the Jazz Organism played, someone asked me "who plays jazz on an organ or for that matter listens to organ music other than in church?....this Thursday not for me?" and i said "you're thinking of the wrong kind of organ.think of Deep Purple... Pink Floyd... Procol Harum... Booker T... Darren's groove comes from the middle 60's jazz players who influenced the psychedelic movement of the 70's. i can listen to him all day long, and i'm not one for church organs."
That's what the organism is.
Darren Heinrich has been all over Sydney the last couple of years - you've probably seen him play and didn't even know it. but next week he's leaving for the USA to study with legendary organist Lonnie Smith...
