The sound of WurliBird Jazz emulates the great organ trios of the 50’s and 60’s in which the keyboard player walks the bass lines in addition to the usual role of melody and harmonic support. Not only is this fun to watch, it also creates a very economical, sparse sound that swings hard with a funky edge. The trio  features Tom Whitehead on Wurlitzer electric piano, Hayes Porterfield on drums and Michael Arciero on guitar.  They cover a wide range of material; moving easily from classic jazz compositions by Wes Montgomery, Wayne Shorter and Thelonius Monk, to more contemporary sounds, pop standards and original compositions.
