Steve Czarnecki's SOUL/JAZZ QUINTET is built around the classic sound of the Hammond B3 organ. We've assembled some great musicians into a wonderful five piece group playing the classic soul/jazz repertoire of artists like Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff. We also toss in many original songs, updated versions of classic grooves, and any other tunes that strike us at the time.Our line up consists of:

Nate Pruitt  vocals

Steve Czarnecki  organ

Mike Renwick guitar

Bob Johnson   sax

Dan Sabanovich  drums

Steve at the Organ

Pete Fallico (Doodlin' Lounge) says: 
Steve's new CD (Soul Rendezvous) is huge! I was proud to debut several of the tunes on my radio show the other night. The groove is undeniable and Steve swings all the way through this session. Grab this CD while you can!

They sound wonderful and I'm sure they'll make great gifts for anyone who enjoys jazz.
