Mascot Label Group / Players Club recording artists Koch-Marshall Trio, consists of American guitarist Greg Koch, his son Dylan Koch on drums and Hammond B3 specialist Toby Lee Marshall. At the heart of this organ trio is a blues sensibility – but Koch’s compositions are an amalgam of rock, funk, jazz and country served up with heavy grooves and dynamic improvisations delivered with no small dose of humor and occasional wild abandon.
“It is a bold move to release a debut album that is strictly instrumental, unless it is of course a power-pocket guitar solo stroking madman. Nonetheless, this is a delightful exhibition of musicianship by this trio. Together they have created a masterpiece that is both heavy and dynamic, interesting as well as vibrant from track to track. Well done Koch Marshall Trio. For these reasons, CrypticRock gives Toby Arrives 5 out of 5 stars.”
