Soul jazz from Michigan's internationally acclaimed organ trio led by Jim Alfredson.

International jazz favorite organissimo invigorates the organ trio tradition, playing soul jazz infused with gospel, blues, and rock, and centered on the Hammond organ played by Jim Alfredson. Called "eclectic, classic, and inventive," organissimo creates a rare musical chemistry that extends the tradition of the organ-based trio. Featuring selections from the recent CD, Groovadelphia.
