Featuring seven local organists, including Kenny Gates, Rich Budesa and Sonny Keaton, as well as many other supporting musicians like Sam Reed, Monnette Sudler and Tim Warfield, this concert proved to be an historic moment. Developed through an unprecedented collaboration between NPR, local public radio stations WXPN and WRTI, World Cafe Live and the Philadelphia Jazz Project, the event easily lived up to its hype and was truly an outstanding showcase of Philadelphia's Jazz organ tradition.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
