Siskiyou Music Project welcomes back long time favorite, jazz guitarist/composer Mimi Fox with her new B3 Organ Trio. This performance will take place on Saturday, October 15 at 7 p.m. at the Grizzly Peak Winery Performance Space.
Following in the footsteps of hero Wes Montgomery, guitarist Mimi Fox leads a hot B3 organ trio. After touring and recording with such organ masters as the late Joey DeFrancesco and Barbara Dennerlein, Mimi will showcase the format’s dynamic sound with a show covering everything from greasy blues and funk to luscious ballads and blazing bebop. Joining Mimi in the trio are Brian Ho and Lorca Hart. Both of whom have played with many jazz legends and together with Mimi, form an all-star group.
Mimi has been hailed by Guitar Player Magazine as “a prodigious talent who has not only mastered the traditional forms but has managed to reinvigorate them.” The internationally acclaimed guitarist and composer has been a winner of six consecutive DownBeat Magazine international critic’s polls.
Fox has performed and recorded with many jazz greats, including fellow guitarists Charlie Byrd and Charlie Hunter; Grammy-nominated saxophonists Branford Marsalis and Houston Person; vocalists Abbey Lincoln and Diana Krall; and powerhouse drummer Terri Lyne Carrington. She has also shared the stage with music legend Stevie Wonder.
The guitarist has toured the world, playing such major festivals as the Montreal, Guinness Cork, Perth International, and Jamaica Spice Jazz Festivals. Stateside, she has headlined at elite venues such as Monterey/Newport Festivals, The Blue Note, The Kennedy Center, Yoshi’s and the Great American Music Hall among countless others.
Mimi has released 12 Cd’s as a leader including her last highly acclaimed acoustic outing This Bird Still Flies which received 4 stars from Downbeat Magazine and of which Jazz Times said: “ Remarkable…a dazzler from start to finish. ”
