Richie McCrae in the Doodlin' Lounge

This podcast was originally aired in January of 2008. At that time organist Richard McCrae had just released his CD called 'Get Here' which featured guitarist Eric Johnson and drummer Don Williams. I was fortunate to have met Richard in person prior to this radio broadcast when we both attended an organ summit in the Bronx. 'Richie', as most folks called him, was not the best known jazz organist but he was certainly one of the best who played in and around New Jersey. I was proud to have known him and so very sad to hear of his passing in November of 2017. At the end of this podcast, I play a live track taken from a 1998 date with the Bay Area's own, John Turk. His organ group was always 'on fire' and I'm equally proud of my friendship with him to this day. I hope you enjoy both Richie and John in this episode.

Delvon Lamarr was a new name for me when I first heard of his organ trio. It seems that his name has popped up in numerous bookings and I wanted to find out more about this 'new-comer' to the world of Jazz Organ. Delvon's wife Amy Novo can be credited for the initial success of this trio. She has been busy producing the band (drummer David McGraw and guitarist Jimmy James) and their newly released CD 'Close But No Cigar' and now they are "ready for the City!" Join me as we visit Seattle's jazz organ scene through the eyes and ears of organist Delon Lamarr
