Richie Hart ''Greasy Street''

Richie Hart

Well it's been a long time between posts for me and I am back with a winner.I picked this album up in Sydney a few weeks ago,I was not familiar with the artist but if it was good enough for Lonnie Smith,it's good enough for me.I hope you like it.

"Richie Hart leads a stellar band that captures the classic guitar/organ combo sound accurately with a swinging groove. His original compositions ensure that jazz and blues will find a comfortable seat every time his unit takes the stage." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Connecticut-based jazz guitarist Richie Hart and his trio present Greasy Street, a funky, blues-drenched set of two originals and eight standards. Stellar high points include the trio’s inspired musical collaboration with today’s undisputed leading Hammond B3 organist Dr. Lonnie Smith on three swinging, bluesy tracks. Richie Hart was a regular member of Dr. Lonnie Smith’s trio in the 1980s. Accompanying Hart are seasoned veterans Rick Petrone and Joe Corsello. Petrone’s list of credits includes work with Maynard Ferguson, Joe Beck and more, while Corsello has performed with Sam Rivers, Barry Miles and John Scofield.
