One of the grooviest albums ever from organist Rhoda Scott – a hip, double-length set recorded at the Club Saint Germain in Paris – often with a good deal of funk in the mix! Rhoda's working here in a slightly expanded version of her usual format – her own Hammond organ in the lead, plus drums from Cees Kranenburg and tenor sax from Leo Johnson – the last of which makes for a wonderful addition to the groove! Most tracks are quite long, and build with a good sense of energy – almost jamming at times, with the drums used much more heavily than on other Scott albums. And Johnson's sax is great too – bringing in a sharper edge that really deepens the soul, and helps show a side of Rhoda that wasn't always caught on record at the time. Titles include a killer 18-minute version of War's "Slipping Into Darkness", a funky take on "Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)", and the originals "Espoir", "Floor Lip", "Le Saint Germain", and "Nyugi-Nyugi".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
