Little Richie Varola

LP (Item 3830) Verve, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Obscure album of swingin' organ tracks on Verve, played by a youthful organist named Little Richie Varola. Most of the stuff has sort of a stompin' R&B organ feel to it, but there's a nice version of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?" that has a great groove to it. Also includes nice takes on "Jaui" and "Walk on the Wild Side". Richie V was Louie Prima's organist, and Sam Butera guests on this session with some honking tenor. (Cover has a cutout hole & two light spots of residue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
