Origin Records’ October release “Folk Music” by the Deep Blue Organ Trio (Origin 82489) was just announced to be at #2 in the JazzWeek National airplay charts. They’re just 5 spins behind #1! This is the highest any Origin Release has ever charted.
The Deep Blue Organ Trio is based in Chicago. Celebrating the classic jazz combo configuration of the Hammond B3 organ, guitar and drums, as well as the Black-American experience through music, Chris Foreman, Greg Rockingham and Bobby Broom bring a modern edge to a musical timepiece.
The Deep Blue Organ Trio began its journey in 1992 playing engagements at Chicago ‘s Cotton Club and Back Room. At the Cotton Club, a weekly gig which lasted for two years, the group began to develop its sound and musical connection. A connection which in large part began in the 1970s, when as teenagers Chris, Greg and Bobby were studying the organ jazz sounds which would soon become classic.
Other Origin releases that have been in the Top 10 for National Airplay include:
Thomas Marriott, Both Sides of the Fence
Joe Locke / Geoffrey Keezer Group, Live In Seattle
