The New Hammond Organ Guru
Live In Melbourne
New CD Release - February 2008
Michel Bénébig New B3 Hammond Organ
Adam Simmons Alto/tenor/baritone Sax
Vaughn Roberts Trumpet
Mike Jordan Drums
Recorded live at Scarlette, Melbourne, Australia
on 11 February, 2007.
Michel Bénébig is New Caledonias greatest jazz export,
regularly performing in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, as well
as the USA and a tour to Europe planned for 2008.
Live in Melbourne was captured at the end of Michels
last Australian tour, with two of Melbournes finest musicians,
Mike Jordan and Adam Simmons, with New Zealand trumpeter, Vaughn Roberts
as well. The tunes are all originals by Bénébig (except
for one by Simmons), with inspiration drawn from his Pacific environment
and his love of the Hammond organ and its tradition.
