Chris Hazelton Trio: Peregrination

Peregrination cover art

Peregrination, by Kansas City Jazz artist Chris Hazelton, is a testament to the legacy of a city who's jazz scene was transformative to how this art form exists today. Eschewing a more conventional jazz instrument, Hazelton is a master of the Hammond B3 organ. Backed by longtime Kansas City stalwarts Danny Embrey on guitar and Kevin Frazee on drums, the ten tracks swing with tasteful improvisation that never loses melodic intimacy with the piece of music being performed. Tight, creative and with the Hammond B3 being displayed in it's most unique environment, the trio deliver an album of sublime jazz. Stream and buy Peregrination at the link below.
