Terrence Brewer
Groovin’ Wes
Strong Brew

Terrence Brewer’s new organ-trio date showcases the Bay Area guitarist in tribute to Wes Montgomery. A melodic improviser with an exquisite tone and an abundance of soul, Brewer captures the free-swinging spirit of Wes on burning renditions of “Speak Low” and “Dearly Beloved,” as well as on funky interpretations of “Bumpin’ on Sunset” and “Road Song.” His relaxed reading of “In Your Own Sweet Way,” underscored by the loosely interactive drumming of Micah McClain, is a treat. Organist Wil Blades fuels this session with just the right combination of elegance (“Here’s That Rainy Day”) and grease (“Bumpin’”).
