Organ – IM 24 ... LP Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
Fantastic funky organ from JackyGiordano – a European keyboardist who seems to sparkle in just about every style he tries on! The set's a sound library record, barely issued at the time – but Jacky treats the proceedings like he's trying to audition for some top-level jazz organ position – using some moments that have a Verve Records jazz approach, others that are lighter and more melodic, and others that rival the keyboard grooves of sound library contemporary Alan Hawkshaw! There's just a bit of rhythm on most tracks, and most titles are quite short – but Giordano packs a lot into a little – on titles that include "Coffee Or Tea", "Latest News", "Hey Taxy", "Easy Drive", "Interrogation Point", "Pheasant Moment", and "Beating Around".

One of the funkiest records of the French scene of the 70s – a now-legendary sound library album from JackyGiordano – and one that's filled with amazing keyboards throughout! Jacky stars with grooves that are like some of the best Lalo Schfrin crime/cop modes of the early 70s – then adds in all these excellent keyboard lines, plus a bit of jazz – with some cuts that have warm Rhodes-like lines, others with a spacier moogier groove – all instrumental, and all wonderfully funky! There's a developed depth to the record that goes way beyond just riffing on a groove – a richness that almost puts some of the best cuts at the level of longer CTI keyboard jazz. Titles include "Terefic War", "The Big Mameluk", "Moving Grooving", "Devil's Train", "Sex Girl", "Blue Circuit", and "Tabla Minor". LP, Vinyl record album
