If you’re a fan of improvisational, psychedelic tastiness, check out Sweets. Brooklyn’s Bennett Paster creates mellow organ work, and also shades his tracks with clavinet, Wurlitzer, piano and Nord Lead 2 using a dissonant touch that would make John Medeski proud… Plenty comfortable with disparate harmonic colors and expressive keyboard textures, Bennett always seems to know just when to change things up, organically (heh) shifting the groove from chill to intense, introspective to full-on-rock.

Keyboard Magazine Unsigned Artist of the Month: Organic! (May, 2005)
Groovy, improvised funk and R&B instrumentals are the brainstuff of this New York city trio. While the key centers are largely static, gonzo musicianship, telepathic group interplay, and some mindbending effects combine for a thoroughly engaging listen.
