Charles Earland was called The Mighty Burner for his prolific, high energy, and influential style of playing the Hammond B3 organ and the organ in general. Infusing soul into a groove style of organ-jazz. Lighting up the jazz world in the 1970's and 1980's and putting the sounds of organ jazz back in its prominent place in jazz. Especially the best-selling soul-jazz classic on Prestige - the "Black Talk!" album of 1969 where the tune "The Mighty Burner" was recorded and the hits "Aquarius" and "More Today Than Yesterday" received worldwide airplay. On this night, JazzBuffalo presents a tribute to the Mighty Burner that will feature guitarist Greg Millar. Millar was the guitarist on Earland's famous 1972 "Intensity" album that featured hits "Lowdown", "Cause I Love Her", and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorow". A historic album for it was the last documented recording of the late legendary trumpeter, Lee Morgan, who was shot and killed 2 days after the recording session in February of 1972. The album also featured Hubert Laws, Billy Cobham, Billy Harper, and others. On organ, Gerry Youngman (of Paradigm Shift) will present the sounds of the Mighty Burner with his dynamic style of performing. Joining in this high energy concert will be saxophonist Kelly Bucheger (of What Would Mingus Do?), trumpeter Brian Freeman (of Van Taylor Jazz), drummer Darryl Washington (Grover Washington, Jr), and jazz percussionist Tony Zambito (JazzBuffalo, My Cousin Tone'). Make plans to attend this unique and special tribute to one of the legends in jazz and soul-jazz history - The Mighty Burner: Charles Earland.
