Showtime in the Main Lounge... About the new CD " Showtime in the Main Lounge" Genre: Instrumental Jazz Rand B Aero Music Catalog # AM17 From quite possibly his last sessions ever, a recording of just Robbie King... his organ and Bass Pedals, with Chris Norquist on drums and Guest Artists: Steve Hilliam-tenor saxophone, David Say-Tenor and Alto Saxophone, Bill Runge-Alto Sax, Terry Townson-Trumpet, Jerry Doucette-guitar Robbie Steininger-guitar, bass and programming, Steve Soucy-piano When Robbie King passed away in October of 2003. Vancouver lost one of it's most brilliant, colourful and best loved musicians. Robbie's session credits included a who's who of national and international stars, including Bryan Adams, Alice Cooper, Metallica, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Tina Turner, Jerry Doucette, Jim Byrnes, the Hometown Band, Powder Blues, to name but a few. In addition to his innumerable sessions as a keyboard player and producer, Robbie King was arguably Canada's foremost voice on the Hammond organ. His approach to voicings, harmony and syncopation were always unique. This album presents him for the first as a leader, in a trio setting playing just the Hammond with guest appearances by some very talented musical friends. Aero has decided to release this album, with part proceeds from it's sale benefiting the Robbie King Fund-to aid musicians who are experiencing hard times.
