A 2LP set that features some great early groovers from George Benson – cut for Columbia back in the late 60s, when George was fresh out of Jack McDuff's classic combo, and grooving on his own with the help of organist Lonnie Smith. These tracks have gotten pretty hard to find on vinyl over the years, which makes the set even more essential than it was a decade ago, when you could still find it easily in the cutout bins. Most numbers have a great raw organ/guitar groove – much different and a lot more soulful than most of the other jazz on Columbia at the time. Tracks include "Benson's Rider", "Clabber Biscuits", "Chicken Giblets", "Mama Wailer", "Hammond's Bossa Nova", "Peg Leg Jack", "Jaguar", "Keep Talkin", and "Slow Scene".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint-
We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Any Number Can Win
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
