When a Finn, a Dane, and a Frenchman take on the organ trio genre expect it to be funky and supercool. And This is It is just that. This new group pivots around Cedric Piromalli’s Hammond organ in ways you might expect if you are a fan of the Blue Note 1960s sounds of Big John Patton and Larry Young. Then again This is It also flirts with a combination of go-go boots, prog rock, and some future shock.
Those familiar with the Danish drummer Stefan Pasborg know he likes his jazz served with a side dish of rock and an avant-garde chaser. Together with the Finnish saxophonist Mikko Innanen, the two have collaborated with Wadada Leo Smith in the band Delirium and on Pasborg’s Odessa 5 and Free Moby Dick (ILK Music, 2012). Add Piromalli to that mix and the party ignites.
