BMC Organ Trio featuring Ian Hendrickson-Smith
|Date:||Sunday, August 19th 2018, 2.00 pm|
|Location:||Historic Logging Museum|
|Admission:||$25.00 plus HST|
Fancy an afternoon of the hottest imaginable soul/jazz organ, garnished with an insanely talented guest saxophone star? We’ve got it.
BMC is Ben Bishop (guitar), Jeff McLeod (organ) and Morgan Childs (drums), and they’re delighted to be joined by Ian Hendrickson-Smith of The Roots (house band of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon).
Ian has ten CDs as leader to his credit and has worked and/or recorded with Mark Ronson, Al Green, Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan, Phish, Michael Buble, Boyz 2 Men, and David Sanborn.
As a pop/rock musician Jeff McLeod has played major US festivals with Serena Ryder (and our festival with Alison Young and Radio Dial) but he is a true master of the Hammond B3 organ, an instrument capable of astounding sonic adventures. It can howl, it can cry, it can soothe and comfort.
Ben’s inventive playing and gorgeous tone are inspired by supreme guitar greats such as Kenny Burrell, Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery. (Fun fact: Ben and Jeff both have music doctorates from Rochester’s Eastman School of Music)
Morgan’s inventive musicality and deep swing make him a favourite of Robi Botos, Don Thompson, Phil Dwyer and many others (and Morgan’s a composer and band leader too!).
Holy moly, this is going to be one smoking show!
