Show at 7:30pm

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley presents Bobby Broom and The Deep Blue Organ Trio, for two nights, touring in support of their latest release Wonderful!. Band members are Bobby Broom (guitar), Chris Foreman (Hammond B3 Organ) and Greg Rockingham (drums). Set times Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6pm on Tuesday and 5:30pm on Wednesday.

Celebrating the classic jazz combo configuration of the Hammond B3 organ, guitar and drums, as well as the Black-American experience through music, The Deep Blue Organ Trio breathes new life into the classic jazz configuration bringing a modern edge to a musical timepiece.

Fresh from a successful year-end week of performances at the Umbria Winter Jazz Festival in Italy, Deep Blue is looking forward to playing for West Coast audiences and plans to feature material from their latest CD Wonderful!, a tribute to Stevie Wonder. Their deeply informed, strongly felt versions of nine Wonder songs from the 1970s made a big impact on jazz radio last year. The disc was the most played jazz title in North America late last summer, coming in at #1 on both the JazzWeek Top 50 Jazz Album Chart and the CMJ Jazz Top 40 Chart. Wonderful! finished at #15 on the JazzWeek Top 100 chart for 2011.

Broom, Foreman, and Rockingham—who first played together in 1992, and formed Deep Blue Organ Trio in 2000—have emerged as prominent purveyors of the jazz organ trio tradition. Prior to Wonderful!, the band recorded two albums for Delmark (2004's Deep Blue Bruise and 2006's Goin' to Town: Live at the Green Mill), and 2007's Folk Music for Origin. For the past decade, when not on tour, they've held down Tuesday nights at the famed Chicago jazz club, the Green Mill.
