New Interview! Issue 140 with Kevin Coelho | Improvijazzation Nation f

I totally fell in love with Kevin’s grand Hammond B3 playing when I heard & reviewed his first release… when he popped his second CD on us for review, I knew I wanted to get him to do an interview with us!  Very insightful & personable interview – thanks for taking the time, Kevin!”

Interview

Zzaj:  Your grasp of the B-3 masters, like Jimmy Smith, speaks volumes about your ability… give our readers a short bio sketch (fresh, off the cuff) that gives us “your own words” of where you’re from, how you got here & where you’re going, please.

Kevin: My start actually didn’t come from jazz, rather I started with classical piano at a young age, and then moved on to 60s and 70s records that my dad had in his collection. Before I started on jazz, I was listening to the Isley Brothers, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Lynard Skynard, Santana, and many more. The first time I heard and recognized the organ was when I heard Booker T. & The MG’s play “Green Onions”. As soon as I figured out that the organ was the sound I loved about that song, I knew I wanted to play organ. Since that discovery, I moved on to listening to many soul jazz records like Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Shirley Scott, Groove Holmes, and eventually I made my way to Don Patterson, Jimmy Smith, Bill Doggett, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and the next generation including Larry Young, Larry Goldings, Tony Monaco, Joey DeFrancesco. I got to where I am by listening and loving this music, and trying as best I could to play it.
