Groovin’ at Groove Now, the dynamic and energetic performance by Doug Deming & the Jewel Tones, captured and recorded live at Atlantis Basel for the Groove Now concert series in Basel, Switzerland, is the live recording longtime fans of the band have been waiting for.
Running the gamut from traditional blues to swing and jazz, the nearly one-hour set includes eight original tunes, and three tributes to blues giants like Willie Dixon, Little Walter and Fats Domino.
Historically a quartet, the current Jewel Tones configuration is pared down to a trio consisting of Doug Deming on vocals and guitar, young veteran and longtime bandmate Andrew Gohman on upright and Fender bass, and newest member Zack Pomerleau on drums and harmonica, simultaneously. For the Groove Now concert, the trio was joined by fantastic, award winning saxophonists Terry Hanck and Sax Gordon, as well as renowned keyboardist Bill Heid.
Doug Deming and band display the depth and musicianship of a group honed to a level of sophistication borne from their utter love and respect for the blues genre, and it broadcasts loud and clear. With the addition of unrehearsed special guests for this performance, Groovin’ at Groove Now captures a night of incredible chemistry and spontaneity between a host of exceptional artists, and affirms Deming as a formidable bandleader.
