ABOUT THE ARTIST: DONNYBROOK
Donnybrook is an original, modern, soul jazz and straight ahead co-led organ trio from Toronto, Canada. The trio concentrates on a mix of historic repertoire and original music in the tradition of the great Hammond organ trios of the 1960s. Guitarist Ben Bishop, organist Jeff McLeod, and drummer Morgan Childs joined forces in 2015 with a mutual interest in the classic sounds of the records of Jimmy Smith, Don Patterson, Grant Green, and Dr. Lonnie Smith, as well as modern organ groups like Mike LeDonne’s Groover Quartet and the Larry Goldings Trio, with a goal to develop a unique identity and sound in that tradition. Six years later, Donnybrook has appeared across Canada at prominent jazz venues including The Yardbird Suite, Buckingjam Palace, The Bassment Jazz Club, The Rex Hotel, The Burdock Room, and 3030 Dundas, as well as at the Markham Jazz Festival, Brampton World of Jazz Festival, Toronto International Jazz Festival, and the Haliburton Forest Festival. Special guests with the trio have included prominent international jazz and blues artists like Chris Gale (Colin James, Blue Rodeo), David French (Broken Social Scene), Alison Young (2018 Juno nominee) and Ian Hendrickson-Smith (The Roots, Amy Winehouse, Tonight Show, Dap Kings). Their debut album, Live at the Basement was released in 2020.
