Supporting Maceo Parker & Orgone @ the Roxy on Sunset February 17

Another killer gig. I'm so fortunate, it ain't funny...

Honored to get the call for support from the legendary Roxy on Sunset, this time for Jazz Funk legend, Maceo Parker. In addition, you'll get a fairly rare opportunity to see hometown funk masters Orgone, a traditional (but far from ordinary) jazz/funk band, with some dirty Afro-leanings. Another one of these US bands who should move overseas, they've put out a series of really well-received 12's, bringing them the attention of the likes of UK tastemaker Gilles Peterson, and legendary DJ & producer Danny Krivit (who did a lovely re-edit of Orgone's cover of "Funky Nassau").

Also on the bill is Grand Pianoramax (bless his heart, with that name...), an Acid Jazz project. My wife said "it's tough to be diplomatic with the phrase 'Acid Jazz'. There's no other way to spin it...". This is one of those things that will most likely be better live, depending on how he delivers it...

Here's the particulars...
