Here is some info care of the Cookin' On 3 Burners website...

"Cookin' On 3 Burners are Australia's hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio - joining the dots between Deep Funk, Raw Soul, Organ Jazz & Boogaloo. Since forming in 2000 the 3-piece have forged a well-earned reputation on the international Deep Funk & Soul scene with a series of acclaimed releases aimed squarely at the dancefloor and the Sunday afternoon barbeque!

Jake Mason (Hammond Organ), Lance Ferguson (Guitar) and Ivan Khatchoyan (Drums) formed Cookin' On 3 Burners inspired by the Hammond Soul-Jazz masters such as Jimmy Smith, Reuben Wilson and Jimmy McGriff. The Cookin' sound is drenched in the bluesy, soulful influence of the late 60's/early 70's output of labels such as Prestige, Bluenote & Groove Merchant.

Cookin' On 3 Burners made their home at Adrian Gibson's esteemed U.K label Freestyle Records in 2007 and have released four 7" 45's, two 12" singles and two full length albums: "Baked Broiled & Fried" & the brand new 'Soul Messin' LP. They have also had their music released on labels including Knowfoowl (AUS), Bamboo Shack (AUS), Wagram (FRANCE), SPV (GERMANY) and Nascante (U.K)"

Fans of The Bamboos will totally dig this record ( Lance Ferguson is a member of both groups ), the combination of hard 'n' funky and smooth 'n' soulful is just right and there's a good chance you'll be compelled to shake your booty! If you like this album then make sure to buy their other great CD's/LP's and keep an eye on their tour dates.

A little piece of trivia - apparently "Keb's Bucket" is named after the bucket Keb Darge uses to urinate in during extra long DJ sets!

I love the crazy sound of the Hammond B3...
This combo is fantastic, so much pleasure for me to have their 2 CD's personnaly autographed by Lance FERGUSON when he comes on tour in France with the Bamboos in 2010...
You can find also Lance FERGUSON behind another project : the compilation Black Feeling vol 1 and 2 on Freestyle records...
