Here’s the first single off of the latest Tim Carman Trio album, King Comfy, due out in July 2023. The GA-20 (another kick-ass band you need to be listening to) drummer puts together a tight trio of players to tackle some funky organ jazz on this soon-to-be-released screamer on F-Spot Records out of Los Angeles, CA.
The single’s title is taken after the nickname of Carman’s dog Augie, and “Chicken Noodle Man” is a great introduction to what the Tim Carman Trio is all about, and of course, what’s to come on this upcoming release. Ken Clark’s screaming organ summons up the good Brother Jack McDuff’s spirit for a hot session while Carman and guitarist Steve Fell help push this track to its funkiest. “Chicken Noodle Man” pays homage to the true essence of great jazz music, one that the aforementioned greats would be proud of. It’s inviting, and the grooves are continuous. Rare in jazz today, for sure. Too many musicians are trying to recreate the sounds we’ve all heard over and over, but not creating the real sounds in an organic way. TCT does it differently. From the first few notes of the track, you can hear this Trio doing a top-notch job of preserving a style and sound we all know and love while adding their own feel from start to finish. And you know this, man! Look out for this record jazz heads and funk lovers alike.
