John Abercrombie - Viersen 2004

I'm in a hurry to preserve some links, as RS is changing their policy again...

Here's a set by John Abercrombie, one of the most important jazz guitarists of our times. His brew of organ jazz is quite different from your usual organ trio, more of a cool sound, thanks to Dan Wall's different handling of the organ (different from the Smith and McGriff and McDuff etc styles, that is). Adam Nussbaum of course is a powerhouse drummer, and though Abercrombie himself isn't about swing, the music is forward-moving and driving.
