Joe Manis – The Golden Mean
Since his Steeplechase debut release of 'North By Northwest' (SCCD33102) in September, 2012, Joe Manis has kept this organ trio featuring George Colligan busy performing in and around Oregon where he bases his activities on. Here is their second album which clearly shows the intensity and remarkable rapport of a tightknit working band.
"Adding Colligan's B-3 to his trio provoked an enjoyably incendiary chemical reaction on their 2013 album North by Northwest, with the two soloists inspiring each other to ever more daring flights, mostly in the classic style."- Willamette Week
