Album Notes
The Hammond B3 is at the core of the funky soul-jazz grooves that provide a vehicle for stylistically uncompromised improvisation. While saxophonist Daryl Lowery's playing is noticeably rooted in the music of John Coltrane and the "post-Coltrane influenced" school the highly original sound of Instant!Groove featuring Yoron Israel (drums), Rick Peckham (guitar), Ron Mahdi (acoustic bass), and Dennis Montgomery, III (B3), is reminiscent of the organ based groups of John Scofield and draws much of its repertoire from the likes of "Big" John Patton, Ruben Wilson, Don Patterson and Leon Spencer.

I really enjoyed this guy. Brecker doing pop.
This Cd features a variety of blues and funky tunes. Its rare to hear a tenor play jazz style licks on bluesy tunes and pull it off. This is truly a fusion of jazz and blues. I could go into detail about what I think is his equipment and influences but that would be a guess. The instrumentation is great also. Very top drawer solos from the Organ (big plus) and guitarist. I'd like to find a bio on Daryl.

Daryl is an awesome performer
Daryl and the band do a wonderful job of combining blues and jazz in an enjoyable mix. Really top drawer playing from all band members. Really like the organ/sax/guitar front line!! Sounds hipper than smooth jazz and easier for the average listener to latch on to than straight ahead jazz. Truly great. K
