The Album SOUL JAZZ BEAT is a tribute paid to the Soul Jazz and Hammond Funk golden years of the Prestige and Blue Note labels and also to the most typical musical band ensemble : The TRIO.

SOUL JAZZ BEAT are 3 talented musicians able to electrify their audience with an intense groove and terrific compositions among them are some covers from the masters of the genre like Jack Mc Duff, Richard « Groove » Holmes or even Roy Brooks.

Telmo Fernández on guitar is a master at playing solid, hypnotising and funky grooves. Composer with a lot of inspiration, He is behind this project and teamed up with 2 of his fellow travellers. No doubt that  Boogaloo Joe Jones haunts his nights.

Phil Wilkinson on organ pushes the limits even further with fluid sounds coming straight out of the burning Leslie Cabin. Thanks to his uncommon skill on the double keyboard organ, he gained fame as an accomplished musician and played with many  from Fast 3 to the great Brian Jackson.

Caspar Saint Charles on drums is the backbone and knows how to sublime and transcend the trio with his irreprochable touch that never fails.

Obviously, you realize that SOUL JAZZ BEAT is the condensed version of a musical heritage perfectly represented here by the Soul Jazz and Hammond Funk Trio ready to set you on fire !

Recorded in Madrid at Funkmeba studios, home of  Santí Martin ― bass player of The Sweet Vandals, all the tracks are recorded  live in one take on analog equipment, best way to capture the essence and  original soul of this music !

The maximum length of one side being ― 40 minutes for a LP ― we had to select among all the tracks recorded during this session in 2016.
