Australian born New York Jazz guitarist JC Stylles has released the first full five piece organ group treatment of material by the legendary Art Blakey. This eight track release stays true to Blakey’s original master works, but shines a spotlight on JC’s smooth pick work and fiery solos.
Since his last release Exhilaration and other states in 2011, JC has been turning heads all over the Big Apple. Departing from his original big swing and original organ trio sounds, Blakey Grease boasts an expanded line up and perfectly showcases the depth and range of this high flying New York guitarist.
The new hard swinging Quintet album features Kyle Kohler on Organ, Lawrence Leathers on Drums, Troy Roberts on Tenor & David Lee Jones on Alto, covering All Art Blakey Material for the first time in a complete Organ Combo Treatment.
