This Is Organ Night
The band is Kenny Horst on drums, Gary Berg on saxophone, and Billy Holloman on the Hammond B3 organ. Mozart called the organ 'the king of instruments,' and the king is still ascendant on Tuesday nights at the AQ. With the right musicians, a B3 organ, a drum kit, and a saxophone are one hell of a band, and believe me, these are the right musicians. They are seasoned veterans who have been playing together every Tuesday night at St. Paul's home for live jazz, the Artists' Quarter, for almost 10 years. This CD contains some of the signature tunes the band regularly plays. The Minneapolis alternative weekly City Pages says, 'A rollicking if occasionally excessive affair, the disc sets a limited agenda--re-creating and advertising Holloman's Tuesday night gigs at St. Paul's Artists' Quarter--and succeeds in spades.'
