Cool Cat on the Keys: Overton Berry Interview Part 2 – “At Seattle’s Doulbetree Inn”

Overton Berry Trio circa 1970.

Recently in anticipation of our latest release–Overton Berry Ensemble T.O.B.E. / At Seattle’s Doubletree Inn–we thought it would be great to sit down with the man himself, Overton Berry, and get the back story on these two legendary Seattle soul/jazz/funk albums. And who would we ask to be the interviewer but T.O.B.E. / At Seattle’s Doubletree Inn liner notes writer Kurt B. Reighley.

We posted Part One of the interview last week where Kurt and Overton discussed the landmark 1972 studio album T.O.B.E.. For Part Two this week they dig into the legendary 1970 live album  At Seattle’s Doubletree Inn.  Special thanks go out to producer/engineer extrodinaire Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Low) for taking the time to tape the interviews and snap some photos!
