It’s hardly a secret that Chris Foreman has long been Chicago’s best jazz organist. The Hammond B3 master, blind since birth, has only now released his first recording under his own name. He’s made a handful of killer records as a key member of the Deep Blue Organ Trio (with guitarist Bobby Broom and drummer Greg Rockingham); he’s played behind singer Kimberly Gordon, as well as Henry Johnson and Dave Specter; he’s a fixture at the Green Mill.
Fresh Air jazz critic Kevin Whitehead says Foreman is one of a few Chicago jazz heroes who should be better known outside the city limits.
