Vallejo Jazz Society Presents

Pamela Rose & Wayne De La Cruz: Hammond Organ Party!

Hammond Organ Party! is an inexplicably rare encounter between a soul-drenched singer and a prodigious B-3 practitioner.

San Francisco Bay Area fans know that Rose’s enduring passion for the swinging and soulful sounds of the Hammond B-3 organ have often paired her with jazz B-3 master Wayne De La Cruz at local clubs and festivals. De La Cruz approached Rose with the idea of taking that partnership into the studio with special arrangements structured for voice and B-3. Loose and limber, moving and grooving, this project feels like a Saturday night celebration, with Rose and her top-shelf cast romping through rare jazz standards, blues and R&B classics.

Joined onstage by saxophone great Charles McNeal (McCoy Tyner, Lyle Lovett), guitarist Jeff Massanari and drummer Kent Bryson, this group is ready to party. Frank-John Hadley of DownBeat raved, “outstanding vocals…Rose hits that jazz and soul sweet spot with Wayne De La Cruz and Hammond Organ Party!” Pete Fallico, Doodlin’ Lounge exclaimed “Hammond Organ Party! is an exceptional collaboration…Rose and De La Cruz have hit a home run!”
