Organic Trio

Organic Trio
Brian Seeger - guitar
Jean-Yves Jung - organ
Paul Wiltgen - drums

New Orleans based guitarist and composer Brian Seeger
brings his special blend of soul-jazz and urban
Americana. Backed up by acclaimed Luxembourgish
drummer Paul Wiltgen, and French organ master Jean- Yves Jung, Seeger presents original material, steeped in the sounds of his home town, and the tradition of Hammond-men like Dr. Lonnie Smith and Big John Patton (both of which Seeger has had the pleasure of backing up! ).

“Home Remembered isn’t your ordinary organ jazz trio album. Considering that guitarist Brian Seeger is at the helm of this project, one wouldn’t expect it to be. Seeger, a mainstay on the local jazz and recording scene who holds the Alvin “Red” Tyler Professorship chair at the University of New Orleans, is known for often taking a different approach to the music. His talent allows him to do that. On this disc, which was recorded at the UNO studio, the guitarist is joined by French organist Jean-Yves Jung and, from Luxembourg, drummer Paul Wiltgen. Seeger has appeared in Europe with the two musicians, both of whom boast some strong jazz creds, and their compatibility is in evidence on this fine album. Home Remembered opens on a happy note: “Wife Repellant,” one of six Seeger originals that stand out for its very memorable melody. After a couple of hearings, listeners might find themselves humming along. That’s also true of the album’s easy going title cut. The way the instruments interact with one another and the empty spaces that are allowed make the Organic Trio special. There’s a lot going on—unusual rhythms, grooves, some free jazz moments—yet the music remains wonderfully uncluttered.
The Organic Trio is well named, as there’s such a natural feeling to whatever direction
these intuitive musicians choose to go.”

BRIAN SEEGER - Guitarist Brian Seeger is an integral part of New Orleans still vibrant jazz community. His fluid and rich tone, and searching melodic improvisations, have led to his recognition as 'One of New Orleans' best jazz guitarists, ' by the local music media. His recording and performance credits include Aaron Neville, Charlie Hunter, Big John Patton, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Chris Wood, Jason Marsalis, Davel

Crawford, Stanton Moore, Johnny Vidacovich, John Ellis, Brian Blade, Rebecca Paris, and many others.

Although his musical excursions have been influenced by his studies with contemporary jazz figures such as Gary Burton and Ellis Marsalis, Seeger's playing is well grounded in the blues and American roots music, as well as the sounds of New Orleans' streets. Seeger deftly melds these elements into an approach that is extremely heartfelt and individual; his aesthetic is fundamentally that of a jazz musician, but there is still ample space for ideas from other idioms.

Along with his accomplishments as a performer, Seeger is a well known jazz educator and composer. He holds a full time faculty position in the esteemed University of New Orleans Jazz Studies program, and is the director of the National Guitar Workshop's Jam Summit. Seeger is also an award winning composer and

producer. Many of his compositions have become part of the standard repertoire of the New Orleans soul-jazz community, and have appeared on numerous nationally and internationally released CDs. He has produced over 20 discs for other artists, including French singer and saxophonist Olivier Bou's Boo-Shah-o-Ray, Czech composer and saxophonist Jiri Hala's Make You Wanna Hala, and Luxembourgish composer and drummer Paul Wiltgen's Fresh Sounds disc The Paislies.
