World-class jazz, rock, blues, soul, and R&B musician Brian Auger returns for a multi-city North American tour. The famed Hammond B3 organ and keyboard player, has created a distinct voice that combines jazz, rock, soul and funk, that is clearly recognizable to his millions of fans. With over 30 albums to his name and lengthy stints on the RCA and Warner Bros. labels, Brian Auger has accumulated Grammy Nominations, 10 albums charting in Billboard’s Hot 100, a #1 single, and the title of “The Godfather of Acid Jazz”. During his illustrious, 60-year career, Brian has worked with some of the most iconic musicians including Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, Julie Driscoll, Alex Ligertwood (Santana, Jeff Beck), and even Jimi Hendrix. Brian has recorded with great luminaries as The Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Eric Burdon, Jimmy Paige, and Down To The Bone. His music has been played by Mos Def, Common, and Richard “Grooves" Holmes, among others.

Following previous anthologies like “Oblivion Express" and “Back to the Beginning," Auger, who received the US Congressional Award for Services of Jazz, has released his new, critically-acclaimed album, “Full Circle – The Brian Auger Trio – Live at Bogie's," in the fall of last year. Calling the new Freestyle Records release, “an excellent album," Aja Ketch of A Vibe Radio Show said Auger “has not lost any of that original dynamic free soul." And Shindig Magazine said that “Full Circle" is “the uncluttered, pared-down sound of Brian Auger rolling back the years and revisiting his roots on a set list of standards and evergreens." more info here: http://brianauger.com

"Brian's power and love for the music was the foundation for one of the most memorable tours I have ever done. With this great solid foundation, it made it possible for us to blow free! Brian is a true inspiration to work with despite the fact he is an Englishman. Brian is a bad Mutha...!!!" - Les McCann

"Brian Auger is a superb technician on his instrument, but he also plays with feeling that is a rarity." - Eddie Harris
