Album Notes
In the summer of 2011, Clayton Doley landed in Toronto at the invitation of Harry Manx and quickly immersed himself in the vibrant local scene. He instantly met likeminded musicians that inspired him to form a group based on his first love… The Organ Trio. Consisting of guitar, drums and Doley himself on the Hammond B3 organ and it's bass pedals, it's hard to believe that just three musicians on stage can put out such a big sound.
As a child, Doley taught himself to play the bass pedals on his hammond at home while listening to the sounds of Jimmy Smith and Jack McDuff. He soon started doing organ trio shows as a teenager in his home town of Adelaide but when he moved to Sydney his bands got bigger and incorporated a bass player and a horn section so the bass pedals took a back seat.
With a new found enthusiasm for the bluesy jazz and soul organ trio sound of the '60, and amazing Toronto musicians to bounce ideas off, Doley is once again 'kicking the B3' with his new group The Clayton Doley Organ Experience.
This album was recorded at the famous Canterbury Studios in the funky west side of downtown Toronto on a cold December afternoon. All the songs were either first or second takes captured live in the room using vintage microphones and instruments.
This collection of songs both showcases Doley's unique vocal compositions reflecting on modern issues and personal experience, as well as original instrumental compositions inspired by some of his favorite organists. Also featured are a couple of popular Jazz nd Blues standards that have been key in Doley's musical growth.
So please sit back, relax and listen to the 60's inspired soulful Hammond grooves of Clayton Doley.
