O’s Notes: This is feel-good, organ trio music featuring three prime time musicians, Akiko Tsuruga on the B3, drummer/producer Jeff Hamilton and guitarist Graham Dechter. They share the billing and are seamless as a unit. Tsuruga contributes three originals notably “Mag’s Groove”. Dechter and Hamilton cook on “Orange Coals”. The organ trio is fluid on “A Baptist Beat” and the bubbly “I Remember You”.
