TYPE OF EVENT : Jazz, Blues, Latin, BeBop


"A killer band with real bite"
Mark Youll – JazzWise Magazine


A performance of hard-hitting jazz, blues, Latin, hard bop and post-bop including rarely performed classics by the likes of George Russell, Woody Shaw, Duke Pearson, Pepper Adams and others.

Following on from their highly acclaimed album "Point Blank" (the last music company ltd) The Organisation team up with highly respected Tenor sax and flautist Kelvin Christiane ( Bernard Purdy, Pucho and the Latin Soul Brothers) to further explore the point where hard bop, blues latin gospel and soul collide, They will be performing tunes from "Point Blank" alongside material by Jon Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Hoagy Carmichel and others.


ABOUT THE ORGANISATION

The association was created as a result of a last-minute dep at Kent jazz institution, the Eagle Tavern, with Tony fresh from recording with Ornette Coleman in New York. Playing both alto and baritone on the date there was an instant affinity between the players, the Organisation’s combination of both the Bluesy soul jazz side the Hammond canon, and their knowledge of the more modern post-bop side of the repertoire (as typified by Woody Shaw’s “Moontrane”) working perfectly with Tony’s approach. It is to the credit of all the musicians that they have played a long game, developing their craft and style on the UK jazz circuit and the sounds you will hear are the sounds of a band who have put the hours in and held an ace in their collective hand until the moment to play it was just right.
