Being an organist, I always enjoy listening to others play the instrument. I'm really known for jazz organ, but the fact is that I enjoy playing and listening to all styles of music that involve the organ.

Alberto Marsico is a fantastic jazz organist, but here you hear him in another element, a rockish, bluesy kind of stuff, which I love a lot, and I've never heard anybody do it better than Alberto.
