About the album

Diving deep into the classic tradition of the organ trio, DC-based guitarist Shawn Purcell celebrates hard-bop heroes Pat Martino, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery and George Benson, while finding plenty of room for the influence from Scofield, Stern, Bernstein and others. Graced with a stylistically wide-ranging, virtuosic fluidity, Purcell blends effortlessly with Pat Bianchi's driving basslines and rich chording, while drummer Jason Tiemann creates an animated, energizing flow, propelling this set of 10 originals, along with Johnny Mandel's classic, "A Time for Love," into the realm of a 'must-have' for those deep into the B3 trio tradition. "The combination of soul and relentless drive is what makes Shawn Purcell’s music so appealing..." - Sean Jones
Der in DC lebende Gitarrist Shawn Purcell taucht tief in die klassische Tradition des Orgeltrios ein und zelebriert die Hard-Bop-Helden Pat Martino, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery und George Benson, während er gleichzeitig viel Raum für die Einflüsse von Scofield, Stern, Bernstein und anderen findet. Purcell, der mit einer stilistisch breit gefächerten, virtuosen Flüssigkeit ausgestattet ist, verschmilzt mühelos mit Pat Bianchis treibenden Basslinien und reichhaltigem Akkordspiel, während Schlagzeuger Jason Tiemann einen lebhaften, energiegeladenen Fluss erzeugt, der dieses Set von 10 Originalen, zusammen mit Johnny Mandels Klassiker "A Time for Love", in den Bereich eines "Must-Haves" für diejenigen bringt, die tief in der B3-Trio-Tradition stehen. "Die Kombination aus Soul und unerbittlichem Drive ist es, die Shawn Purcells Musik so anziehend macht..." - Sean Jones

Symmetricity, Purcell's first recording as a leader, released on Dallas-based Armored Records, features nine original compositions and one standard.
