LUCKY PETERSON @ Festival Jazz à Toulon (21/07/2018) 21:30
Blues concert "Tribute to Jimmy Smith" as part of the 29th edition of the "Jazz à Toulon" festival.
In this "Tribute to Jimmy Smith", Lucky Peterson concentrates on the Hammond B-3 organ, his favorite instrument whose warm tone refers to the songs of gospel and the hymns of soul music. To pay tribute to his mentor Jimmy Smith, he surrounded himself with virtuoso partners among whom stands the prodigy guitarist Kelyn Crapp. Throughout the album, Lucky Peterson is the repository of a long musical history rooted in the blues but very open; we find the pulsation of jazz, the groove of rhythm'n'blues and the energy of rock'n'roll.
