The New York-based saxophonist Craig Yaremko, along with organist Matt King, drummer Jonathon Peretz, and special guest guitarist Vic Juris, push the limits of the tradition while displaying a powerful group chemistry. The band swings hard on originals by both Yaremko and King, and puts fresh spins on jazz classics by Monk, Strayhorn, Hubbard and Waller. CYO3 is Yaremko's debut on OA2 Records and his forth as a leader, following his recording "Sync, " which was a Top Ten pick from New York's Hot House Magazine for release.

> "Yaremko looks at the organ trio from multiple angles, showing depth of artistry and character all the while...Yaremko's directness...is refreshing, given the cunning and oblique preferences of so many other saxophonists operating today...here's to hoping that this won't be a one-off organ group outing"
> -All About Jazz

> "Sax players who can realize each of the distinctly gorgeous tones within the soprano, alto and tenor are tough to find. One horn, usually the soprano, suffers. If you add to this a weighty sound on flute and alto flute Craig Yaremko may be the only player left standing."
> -New York City Jazz Record
>
> "The Craig Yaremko Organ Trio prepares listeners for a spirited ride from the opening track...and when Yaremko's alto sax locks in with King's organ line...it's pure magic."
