Lucas Brown has been on the scene, playing jazz organ in Philadelphia, for over a decade now and, to his credit, has firmly established his name within the music community. He has been one of those players who 'everyone has been talking about' and I'm privileged to now present some of his music in my Doodlin' Lounge. With Lucas on many of the tracks are saxophonist Victor North and drummer Wayne Smith, Jr. I hope you enjoy...

Jeff has been on the scene for many years - coming out of Syracuse, New York; attending the Manhattan School of Music; and playing his journeyman years in Harlem... Jeff now commands his post as one of NYC's 'top shelf' jazz guitarists. In this episode, we sample a few tracks from Jeff's 2000 release entitled 'Crazy Talk' but concentrate on his 2008 'Open Up' release from Jazzed Media Records. Here Jeff shows us why he's a first call musician in the Big Apple and what makes him stand out from so many others. Enjoy!

Jeff Hackworth's tenor saxophone voice is heard loud and clear in this Doodlin' Lounge episode. From journeyman to master, Jeff has been hard at work playing the way he feels and reaching the goals that he sets for himself. His tone is robust and filled with heritage that brings most R & B players to the forefront of Jazz Music. Jeff's newest release is sampled in this show as well as tracks from past recordings. Enjoy this truly magnificent tenor player of our times

Ron Oswanski can play!... and the nice thing is that he gives us a variety of sounds on his Hammond organ. He can groove with the best and yet go outside a bit to make things interesting for the ECM folks. Ron came up as an accordionist (as so many mid-westerners have) and wound up playing the famous Hammond tone-wheel organs. His chops are never-ending and his approach to music makes him one of the more appealing of the new-wave-organists. Catch him live if you can!.. until then, here's Ron in my Doodlin' Lounge

Andrae is one of the bright lights on the jazz horizon. I was fortunate to hear about him through saxophonist Eric Wyatt and now I'm a huge fan... playing his music on my Evening Jazz program for KCSM and, here, in my Doodlin' Lounge podcast. Enjoy!
