Good seesion by a fine organ band

"This is the recording of a good middle of the road organ band of the kind one could find in any major Northern or Mid Western city once upon a time. Now they are a rare bird indeed.
Chris Foreman plays like Jimmy Smith circa 1958 which is not a bad thing by any means. Long time listeners to Blue Note Records will find much they recognize. Bobby Broom plays well, and Greg Rockingnham is a good drummer (he does the announcements).
The tune selection is typical of what you could have heard at a performance way back when. The CD the trio put out is more interesting for tunes.
Sonics are excellent and the visual production leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of the better jazz DVD's around of contemporary musicians.
For comparison check out the Jazz Scene USA of Jimmy Smith circa 1962-the way it was."
Great Find !

"On some jazz you can hear the geezers passing gas when it's quiet. Not this one. Even rockers would love this DVD. He's like a Grant Green on steroids. Please don't let that scare you jazzer's. Real musicians in a real club (in Chicago) playing some killer music. Not just chops. Deep Blue Organ Trio-Live at the Green Mill. Organ, Drums and guitar. Bobby Broom plays a Hofner. One of them crazy German guitars. This cooks.
Kudos to the Kameramen. Just about the best camera work I've seen on a music DVD. Timing as good as the musicians. Just enough funny business to make it creative then right down to business. You guys did great."
A must see!

"Bobby Broom on guitar, Foreman on Hammond B3, and Rockingham on the sticks. These guys Groove! The next time I'm in chi-town I will defintely check them out at the Green Mill or Friday's at Andy's downtown."
