Latest CD: Mayhem

Jeff Palmer's latest compositions will titillate the eardrums with a daring and raucous sound. Drawing comparisons to Thelonious Monk, Palmer captures the essence of his instrument with a seemingly effortless fluidity, choosing melodies and rhythms that please even the most discerning listeners. A master editor, Jeff Palmer may be the last of a pedigree of jazz organ players of his generation. Described as modern organ funk, this record combines the experience of previous works with recent experimentation, resulting in a new sound of danceable blues, funk and jazz beats. The album features Jeff Palmer on Hammond B3 organ and bass pedals, Devin Garramone on alto saxophone, and Justin Battle on drums. Mayhem is Palmer & Garramone's third collaboration, following Lovebirds (2005) and Nite Blues (2004).

"One record doesn’t tell a story of a man’s work… you have to look at his entire fleet of records. I changed gears and made a rapid departure with Mayhem. When you look at my discography from the beginning up until Mayhem its very different… If you like a certain recording artist you’re going to have to be prepared to deal with what they drop on you. It should be something that you haven’t heard."

- Jeff Palmer
