A Musical Celebration for IKE STUBBLEFIELD Hosted by Joey Sommerville and Papa J Sez: Featuring Michael Allman, Rev. Jeff Mosier, Diane Durrett, Grant Green, Jr., and more TBA
When the hands of Ike Stubblefield hovered above the keyboards of his Hammond B-3 organ, they were like divining rods in search of water. That’s how trumpet player Joey “Papa J.” Sommerville describes it. Ike played by ear and his ears were nearly perfect.
“When you play as long as we’ve played, your ears get trained,” says Grant Green Jr., the Atlanta-based jazz/funk guitarist who performed with Stubblefield for a decade. But Ike had great ears and he was a great musician.
