Title - 'Move On!'
Artist - Purdie Fabian Oswanski
On this, their first album together, Move On!, the trio of Purdie Fabian Oswanski bring forth (and for the first-ever) an album of organ and bass, playing original jazz funk and also incorporating amazing surprises, such as a swinging, grooving 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic.'
On this quite vibrantly magnificent new album, the living legend of the drums himself Bernard “Pretty” Purdie comes together with journeyman musicians Ron Oswanski (Hammond B-3 organ) and Christian Fabian (electric bass) for a recording that is, simply put, quite like nothing you ever expected to hear!
1. 'The Red Plaza'
2. 'BPP Blues'
3. 'Can’t You See (You’re Doin’ Me Wrong)'
5. 'Got Groove? (Pt. 2)'
6. 'Love You Madly'
7. 'Move On!'
8. 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic'
9. 'So What'
Opening with the funky jam of 'The Red Plaza' that's backed by Oswanski's prowling organ work alongside Purdie's wonderful groove solo on 'BPP Blues,' which is followed by the finger-snappin' mid-tempo, breezy flow of 'Can’t You See (You’re Doin’ Me Wrong)' and then the Fabian's bass lines come into play on the the magnificent '84-85.'
That bass is also front and center on 'Got Groove? (Pt. 2),' a track that actually showcases the collective indominable spirit that this trio has for their chosen genre, and that's followed by the low key, late night piano bar, lush tones of 'Love You Madly.'
The funky, drum-led title track 'Move On!' is one of my own personal favorites here, and that's backed by their wonderful cover of 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic' (also known as 'Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory' outside the US), with their cover of Miles Davis' 1959 'So What' bringing the album to a comforting flashback close.
