Legendary Organist Reuben Wilson Trio
B3 great Reuben Wilson comes to Jazz Forum leading a soulful organ trio. Wilson, who recorded a series of soul-jazz and funk recordings in the 1960s and 70s for Blue Note Records and others, was, in the 1980s, rediscovered, championed and sampled by artists like Guru, Us3, A Tribe Called Quest, and Nas among others. His biggest hit was 1975's "Gotta Get Your Own." Rediscovered by a new generation, his music became a cornerstone of the acid jazz movement breathing new life into this important artist and he hasn't slowed down since. Get ready to get your groove on with this master of the Hammond B3 organ.
