LUSH LIFE: JAZZ, COCKTAILS & A PARTY

BEN MISTERKA COLLECTIVITY TRIO

Featuring Wil Blades on the Hammond B-3 Organ

Ben Misterka is a guitarist and composer of international renowned, and performs regularly with several international pop, fusion, jazz and rock acts. Collectivity fuses these sounds together in a jazz/funk sound that draws on a wide range of influences from around the world and different genres.  Collectivity’s original music is filled with upbeat energy connected through conversational rhythms and collective improvisation.  Tight grooves, soulful guitar work, creative arrangements and a great vibe are not to be missed at a Collectivity performance!

No less a jazz organ authority than the legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith has called Wil Blades “the future,” anointing him the heir apparent to “carry on the legend [and] the legacy of the organ, of the B-3.”

Blades shoulders that responsibility with nonchalant virtuosity and infectious groove on his second recording, Field Notes (out August 19 from The Royal Potato Family). The album’s nine songs report back from the rich incubator that is the road, with pieces written from snippets recorded at soundchecks, gigs and jam sessions—field recordings of the jazz trio in its natural habitat. On his first full trio outing, Blades is joined by guitarist Jeff Parker (Tortoise, Joey DeFrancesco, Joshua Redman) and drummer Simon Lott (Charlie Hunter, Will Bernard), both musicians who share Blades’ grounding in tradition and urge to push it forward.
