Bio - Advanced Warning.
'Advanced Warning' consists of the following musicians:
Herbert Noord - Hammond organ, Pierre v.d. Linden - drums - and Rinus Groeneveld ten.sax.
'Advanced Warning' is based on the tradition of the organ-tenor combinations from the Fifties and Sixties, like Richard 'Groove' Holmes - Gene Ammons, Jack McDuff - Willis 'Gatortail' Jackson and Larry Young - Herbert Morgan. The music of this trio can be characterized as having their roots in the organ-tenor tradition but evaluated to a more modern and contemporary trend. Blues, funky and most of all swing are the distinguished marks of this trio.

Guest appearances on this CD are made by Roberto Haliffi on percussion, guitarist Paul Weeden and singer Tommy 'Madman' Jones. The title song was a local hit in London discotheques. One of the song's -The Day Monk Died- was broadcasted more than 20 times by the B.B.C.
