Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group


In order to celebrate the 16th anniversary of the Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group's regular Thursday night gig at Portland's Jimmy Mak's, the group recorded live at the club in November, 2013.  Not certain we'd gotten enough good takes for a CD, we recorded again in January, 2014.  But when we listened back to the tracks, we realized we now had too much material for one CD--so we released a pair!  In describing the first live recording session, The Oregonian's David Greenwald wrote that the band, "takes a jazz blowtorch to pop history!"
