Jim Alfredson comes from a musical family and began writing his own songs at the age of eight on a Yamaha organ. A score of synthesizers and multitrack machines followed until he came full circle at sixteen and began lusting after the sound of the Hammond organ once again. Jim has immersed himself in the study of the mighty Hammond B3 ever since, dedicated to uncovering new directions within the deep tradition of the instrument.
For 10 years, Jim served as organist and musical director of the highly successful, award-winning rhythm & blues band Root Doctor (1999 – 2009) producing three CDs for the band. Jim formed the jazz trio organissimo in 2000 which has released five critically acclaimed CDs and a DVD in the intervening years. In October 2013, Jim released his a solo project entitled Jim Alfredson’s Dirty Fingers. It is a tribute to jazz organ great Big John Patton.
