AMENDOLA VS. BLADES :: Everybody Wins
Out now on CD, LP & Digital
Wil Blades is hands down one of the essential torchbearers for the Hammond B-3 organ-jazz tradition, not to mention as tasty as they come on Clavinet. Scott Amendola is one of the rare drummers who's pure groove in the pocket, but somehow simultaneously and delightfully angular and skewed in the very same moment. Add guitarist Jeff Parker of Tortoise, percussion wizard Cyro Baptista, saxophonics visionary Skerik and the ever cinematic Rob Burger to the mix and you have a record that reveals itself in new and explosively colorful ways with each listen!

"Destined to become one of the best organ-led soul-jazz records of 2014." - Something Else Reviews
Berkeley, CA-based organist Wil Blades made his RPF debut two years back with Shimmy—a duo record pairing him with MMW's Billy Martin. Flash forward to Summer 2014 and we're super excited to bring you Wil's new solo album,Field Notes, featuring guitarist Jeff Parker of Tortoise and drummer Simon Lott of New Orleans. The raves are rolling in for this lo-down, super groovy B3 gem!
