Darren Heinrich Trio: New Vintage Tunes For The Hammond Organ  
 

New Vintage Tunes for the Hammond Organ (2007) is perhaps a first for Australian Jazz - an album of entirely original material performed by an organ trio. The 10 tracks (and 2 bonus tracks), composed by Darren, run the gamut of the jazz spectrum in style. Swing, Funk, Boogaloo, Ballads and Blues all get a workout here and while Darren's influences may be evident to Hammond fans, the music is undeniably original and fresh. Produced by legendary US organist Tony Monaco during a visit to Australia, the album was recorded over two days by engineer Richard Belkener.

"Jazz organ is alive and well! In fact, since it's resurgence in the early 90s, Jazz Organ and the Soul Jazz movements continue to gain momentum. With the help of organist and producer Tony Monaco, Darren Heinrich makes his second contribution to the jazz organ discography with 'New Vintage Tunes for the Hammond Organ' his recording not only showcases his abilities at the Organ, but also highlights his compositional voice.

Darren uses two first class rhythm sections on this recording. Guitarist Steve Brien and drummer Andrew Dickeson, both faculty at the esteemed Sydney Conservatorium of Music, are "first call" musicians in Sydney. The second configuration of this trio consists of guitarist Simon Relf and drummer Tim Firth. Both Simon and Tim have an extensive performance background and are highly sought after in the Sydney Music Scene." Pat Bianchi, Jazz Organist, New York City 2008

"This album is my first to feature entirely my own compositions. The decision to record with two rhythm sections was simply due to the fact that I could not choose between them. Both line-ups have something special to offer, which I guess boils down to a traditional approach versus a more modern, looser feel. I love both styles and I think that the tunes work both ways. Of course, I ultimately had to pick between them and so here are what I feel are the best takes of each tune, with two alternate takes for the listener to compare and enjoy." Darren Heinrich

Personnel: Darren Heinrich (Hammond B3) with Steve Brien (Guitar) & Andrew Dickeson (Drums) or Simon Relf (Guitar) & Tim Firth (Drums).
