Brian Auger and the Trinity, along with vocalist Julie Driscoll, were a British soul and jazz-rock band that gained popularity in the late 1960s. Brian Auger, a talented keyboardist and organist, formed the band in 1964 with drummer Clive Thacker and bassist Rick Laird. However, it was the addition of Julie Driscoll as the lead vocalist in 1966 that brought them their biggest success.
Under the Marmalade Records label, Brian Auger and the Trinity with Julie Driscoll released their most well-known single, "This Wheel's on Fire," in 1968. The song, written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko of The Band, became a significant hit, reaching the top five of the UK Singles Chart. It showcased Driscoll's powerful and soulful vocals, complemented by Auger's virtuosic keyboard playing.
The band's fusion of soul, jazz, and rock elements was quite innovative at the time. They incorporated elements of psychedelia and progressive rock into their music, creating a unique sound that stood out in the era's musical landscape. Auger's skilled organ playing, often accompanied by his signature "droning" technique, became a defining aspect of their sound.
Brian Auger and the Trinity with Julie Driscoll released several albums during their collaboration, including "Open" (1967) and "Streetnoise" (1969). Their music was characterized by intricate arrangements, improvisation, and a mix of original compositions and well-chosen covers. They became known for their energetic live performances, where Auger's keyboard skills and Driscoll's dynamic vocals captivated audiences.
Despite their success, the band's lineup changed over time, and by the early 1970s, they had disbanded. Brian Auger continued to have a successful career as a solo artist and in various musical collaborations, exploring jazz fusion and continuing to showcase his exceptional keyboard abilities.
