R.I.P. Ken Nordine (4/13/20 - 2/16/19) . One of/if not the greatest ever, voice talent...
I feel very fortunate to have had this conversation with him a couple of years ago

Duncan McMillan in the Doodlin' Lounge

Duncan McMillan belongs to the not-so-young generation of jazz organists who sprung from the music of Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland and others of that mid-seventies period. Pittsburgh-born, Bill Heid (who spent a great deal of time in Detroit) influenced young Duncan to a large degree. It was Bill's connection to the veterans of jazz organ that inspired Duncan to move forward with his own dream of becoming a jazz organist. He has come a long way in his development and reveals his deep love and respect for those who preceded him with a most articulate narrative that is mixed with tracks from his new release, 'Room with a View', and more. Enjoy a true champion of jazz organ in this episode of my Doodlin' Lounge.

This is a podcast made from my radio program I produced with organist Butch Cornell in November of 2007 - just a year before Butch passed. I decided to upload it again because I feel it has such significance to the era of organ jazz that I love; to the people who played this music and who struggled with the interfering drug culture; and to the life lessons that one man can offer to future generations of musicians. In many ways, this may be the most important podcast I've ever produced. I hope you enjoy

Guitarist Mark Elf joins me in this episode and discusses his beginning days as a guitarist and how he came up through the ranks, cutting his teeth with organ-greats like Jimmy McGriff, Richard Groove Holmes, Charles Earland and Jack McDuff. He has over a dozen recordings out on his own Jen-Bay Record label and has done an immeasurable job of promoting other musicians with their projects. I'm sure you'll enjoy Mark's perspective on music and life.

This interview with the great Sonny Fortune - who we lost this past October 25 - was done on September 7, 2007 just before he was to play three nights in San Francisco. There is no music - just Sonny and I talking over the phone... hope you enjoy. Sonny Fortune R.I.P.

Roberta Piket has long since been known as one of our most revered jazz pianists but recently she received notable recognition from downbeat magazine in the 'rising star' category for organists. This spiked my curiosity and drove me back to her discography to explore her excursions into jazz organ. She joins me in this episode of my Doodlin' Lounge and discusses her interest in the organ and how it has now driven her to form a new organ trio that will soon play a larger role in her music career.
