''Wichita Lineman''

Organ combo historians might be the only ones who remember Bobby Pierce, the Columbus, OH native and peer of Don Patterson, Eddie Baccus, and Hank Marr. His only other album for the Cobblestone/Muse family of record labels came out back in 1972, Introducing Bobby Pierce. It's long out of print, a collectors item for sure, and a reminder of the chitlin' circuit club scene where his central Ohio home was a focal point. At the time of his last new recordings, he is based in Los Angeles, playing music in jazz, gospel, or classical settings after being devoted to a life apart from music for the better part of four decades. Hopefully, Bobby Pierce will do another recording sooner than the some 35 years it took to produce this one, and it will be just as satisfying.
By Michael G. Nastos

Bobby Pierce was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 7, 1942. He spent many years playing in both Chicago and New York with masters of the jazz idiom as well as traveling the world with a variety of music groups. Besides being an extraordinary pianist and organist, Bobby is an evocative song stylist who composes, arranges and directs music in a myriad of settings. He currently lives in the Los Angeles area where he is active with Gospel, Jazz and Classical musical ensembles.
