The repertoire and sound of the UK guitarist’s organ trio is rooted in the smoky jazz bars and late night dives of the early 1960s.

Groovy, neatly-contrived originals mingle with well-arranged songbook classics – “Up Jumped Spring” changes tempo; “Chelsea Bridge” switches from samba to swing – and organist Pete Whittaker delivers rich voicings and urgent bass.

Price, though, is the star turn, giving an authentic sound an original spin. He has the same blues-laced flow as the late Grant Green, and possesses similarly deep reserves of invention.
