Not the kind of organ, guitar, drums trio who worship at the altar of Jimmy Smith or Wes Montgomery. No, this particular OGD is more contemporary - the guitar of Pritesh Walia more John Scofield or Mike Stern-like, while Sharik Hasan's organ inclinations come over far more like John Medeski and Avery Logan's busy drumming might well appeal to the drum 'n' bass lover in your life. Hailing from the Boston scene it's a lively sound, certainly rooted in jazz-rock fusion more than soul-jazz - there's isn't any attempt to replicate a classic 1960s loungebar sound. The 'Hymn' track calms things down a lot and comes over as a surprise. But perhaps the trio are more at home pushing hard as on 'Onward'. Strap yourself in!
