Eskelin, Ellery Trio (w/ Gary Versace / Gerry Hemingway): Willisau Live (Hatology)

Label: Hatology    
Released in: Switzerland    


"We see many familiar faces each time we perform in Willisau and it's always wonderful to reconnect with our friends over the years. It's that warm feeling combined with a heightened awareness of the special nature of this annual event that makes this place, these people and these performances so memorable.

This concert was recorded for SRF 2 Kultur and the combination of good vibes (on the part of the audience) and technical acumen (on the part of the recording engineers) resulted in a document that I feel is worth sharing. Please note that any distortion you may hear in the sound of the Hammond organ was original to the instrument and not introduced in the recording process. These vintage instruments each have their own particular character and Gary Versace truly brought this B3 to life in all it's glorious grit and soul.

Gary's nearly telepathic musical mind along with Gerry Hemingway's absolutely unique approach to the drums infused the music this evening with a very special and rare chemistry. It was a great pleasure for me and I hope you enjoy listening."-Ellery Eskelin, November 2015
