O’s Notes: Radam dials up ten solid B3 blues tunes as promised by the title. He’s joined by Bill Saxton (ts), Bruce Williams (as), Eric Johnson (g) and Cecil Brooks III (d) Bruce plays with passion on “Grieve But Be Brief”, one of five Schwartz originals in the set. We enjoyed the soulful ballad “I Don’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance” and Radam working the B3 on “Eighth Wonder” and “Misty”. Rapper Kice takes the mic for the lone vocal track “Pay Up” adding an urban twist to a fine set. It is 100% satisfaction for those with a taste for organ blues.
