This special lunchtime performance by the Ike Stubblefield organ trio will feature Detroit Brooks on guitar and Herlin Riley on drums.
Organ master Ike Stubblefield began his career recording and performing with Motown artists including Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Ike & Tina Turner and Rare Earth. In the ‘70s, he contributed to the rock ‘n’ roll of the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in San Francisco, working with Janis Joplin, Boz Skaggs, Eric Clapton and Jerry Garcia. Stubblefield then moved on to producing and composing, working with the likes of Phil Spector and Quincy Jones. He remains an in-demand session player and special guest, and tours regularly with his own trio. Following Ike Stubblefield’s SMF debut in 2011, a JazzTimes critic wrote that “the B-3 organ at the hands of a player like Ike Stubblefield becomes a force of nature.”
