Local Spin of the Week: Grand Rapids/Lansing's Organissimo
Here's yet another Michigan band with a sizable national/international following that could grow even more after fans hear their new studio album. Organissimo -- featuring drummer Randy Marsh, of Grand Rapids, Hammond B3 organ whiz Jim Alfredson and guitarist Joe Gloss, of the Lansing area -- already has won a passel of awards in Michigan, earned a following on the East Coast and been invited to a prestigious jazz festival in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Their latest, ultra-cool jazz album is titled, "Groovadelphia" (which makes some sense considering the band plays regular gigs in Philadelphia) and takes another step toward honing Organissimo's tasty, "organic" sound. Songs range from the laid-back to the funky.
