Both traditional and trailblazing...Highly recommended.
***Blues Review Magazine, Jan 2005
In an age where clothes and plastic surgery appear to count more than musical ability, this record harks back to a time when it was all about the music.
***New York Blues and Jazz Society, by Roger Z, 2004
Baum's playing has a deep funk to it, with a big influence of Jimmy Smith. And Baum also brings in all kinds of other things as well - dissonant jazz, alternative rock, R&B. He's not too far off from what John Medeski does with Medeski, Martin and Wood, but with more of a blues streak to it.
***Jim Trageser. Escondido, Calif. Â© 2003 Turbula.net
Groove, groove, groove. That's what Jeremy Baum's really about. Simple, tight, clean, funky pockets build around catchy, bluesy riffs. "Lost River Jams" captures the classic organ trio sound and distinctively updates it with a potpourri of blues, jazz, R&B, Latin, and a touch of dissonance.
Rooted in the Blues...
***Blues on Stage, Gordon Baxter Feb 2003
Baum's funky originals open with catchy hooks that stick in your head for days.
***Chronogram, Wavy Davy, Dec 2002
A talented player who knows the intricacies of the organ as well as players twice his age.
