Soulful Days is the debut album by Soul Message Band but, for the most part, these masterful musicians are not appearing on Delmark for the first time. Organist Chris Foreman and drummer Greg Rockingham both came from the now defunct Deep Blue Organ Trio who have two Delmark albums and one DVD. Alto saxophonist Greg Ward appeared as a sideman on Jason Roebke’s High Red Center album (Delmark 5014) and tenor man Geof Bradfield recently came out with his Delmark debut, Yes, and… (Delmark 5027). Newcomer Lee Rothenberg is featured on guitar and wrote “Sir Charles”, the smoking opener for this funky, greasy organ combo album.
