Concert: Hammond Grooves Live @Helter Skelter Bar

The Hammond Grooves keeps and transcend the Jazz Organ Trio
traditions. Formed by HAMMOND ORGAN, GUITAR and DRUMS, they add
influences of brazilian music, soul jazz, blues and even rock music to their own
compositions. A true universe of sounds and culture that emanetes from each of
the hot valve tubes of Daniel Latorre’s Hammond organ, from the magic frases
of Filipe Galadri’s guitar and from the exiting beats of Wagner Vasconcelo’s
Beside the soul jazz standards HG perform their own original’s that blend
Brazilian rhythms with jazz music.
The name Hammond Grooves is not coincidence. “The first idea when we
assembled the trio was to perform live this unique group formation with the jazz
and groove repertoire that we listened in the Blue Note, Atlantic and Verve
recordings. But suddenly we start to make our own tunes using each band
member’s influences, specially the Brazilian rhythms. We sustained the name as
a homage to this wonderful instrument, the Hammond organ, for all the history,
philosophy and atmosphere that surround it” - as says found member Daniel
