"Mike Mangan's Hammond playing is lithe, percussive, greasy, and searing, encompassing elements ranging from Latin to hip-hop, straight-up rock to classic jazz."
Mike Gallant - Keyboard Magazine
“Cool sound. I always considered my organ solos as guitar or maybe horn sections with some organ thrown in, which is not the usual approach. I think Mike Mangan and B.O.T. may have taken that same idea a step further.” Gregg Rolie - Santana (cofounder and original B3 organist/lead vocalist)
"B3 organ player Mangan was outstanding, with jazz inspired licks that went beyond the typical blues-rock genre."
Bernard Bauer - Music Connection
"Mike Mangan's playing and the classic 'one of a kind' tone of the Hammond B3 organ gives this performance a sonic assault without sacrificing strength or intensity!"
Kati St. James - Night Moves Magazine
"Mike Mangan's Big Organ Trio is all about deep B3 Funk Rock grooves with a jamband sensibility. There’s improvisation all over this CD, but this is more rock than jazz, more funk than blues...If you like your organ to rock and funk you (think MMW, Azymuth, Niacin), then check this disc out."
ContemporaryJazz.com - CD Review
"Taking a fresh approach to their music, Mike Mangan's Big Organ Trio fuses jazz, hip-hop, Latin, electronica and more for a sound that is the very definition of funky. Walking bass lines and intricate organ solos add to the excitement of this band's jam-tastic sound."
