One of the most revered Hammond organists alive, Chester Thompson has led a charmed musical life – writing, recording and performing for four decades with two of the legendary bands to emerge in the 1960s and 1970s, Tower of Power and Santana. He makes his Miner Auditorium debut with a Thanksgiving themed groove-fest featuring music from saxophone great Lou Donaldson’s 1962 Blue Note soul-jazz classic Gravy Train, with special guests.
Arriving in the Bay Area in 1969, Thompson worked with stalwart San Francisco saxophonist Jules Broussard before forming his own quartet, eventually releasing his aptly named 1971 debut, Powerhouse, on the Black Jazz label.
