Richard Groove Holmes & Jimmy McGriffSupa Cookin' (Giants Of The Organ Come Together/Giants Of The Organ In Concert) ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A double-length set, with double-organ intensity – two killers from the team of Groove Holmes and Jimmy McGriff! First up is Giants Of The Organ Come Together – and album that features long tunes that open up with the same sort of solo-heavy approach that you'd get on Holmes' Prestige albums of the 60s – very stretched out, in a way that offers the keyboardists no cover at all, and forces them to keep thinking on their feet to come up with great notes! Bernard Purdie plays some nicely tight drums on the set, and guitar is by George Freeman and O'Donel Levy – both of whom add some nice superdope touches to the set! A winner all the way through, with great solos – and titles that include "Licks A Plenty", "The Squirrel", and "Finger Lickin' Good". Next is material from the follow-up album – a live date titled Giants Of The Organ In Concert – recorded live in Boston in 1973, edited down a bit for its appearance here. The set features some of the most furiously funky live organ grooving you'll find this side of Root Down – and a whole lot of super tight jazz jamming! The group's got three guitarists, one of whom is the great O'Donel Levy, plus Mike Moss on drums and Kwasi Jayourba percussion. Most of the tracks are nice and long, with lots of solo space, and titles include opening funky monster "The Preacher's Tune", plus "Beans", "Mozambique" and "Closing Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriffCherry ... LP
Solid State, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
A great little album from Jimmy – even if it doesn't look it from the cover! Most of the tunes are standards, too – which doesn't make you think the record will be a slammer – but the quality of the playing is excellent, and Jimmy's got a 2-guitar combo with Eric Gale and Everett Barksdale on the electric strings, plus Milt Hinton on bass, and Grady Tate on drums. The real star is Jimmy himself, though – as he gives his work on Hammond a tight short punch that's not exactly funky, but which is getting ready to groove like his work from a few years later. Includes the vocal number "The Comback", written by Larry Frazier – plus "The Way You Look Tonight", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Tequila", "Watermelon Man", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffElectric Funk ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Jimmy's funkiest albums ever – a sweeeeet batch of short, hard, and funky cuts – and a record that ranks right up there with the mighty Soul Sugar for sheer funkiness! Jimmy takes an upbeat and easygoing approach to the late 60s funk sound, with a nice, rubbery bass and the organ sound just killer – but would expect less from McGriff on that front? Truly funky and totally irresistible stuff, with sinister, measured moments that bigger and heavier pretty quickly - kind of prefiguring 70s blacksploitation soundtrack vibes in spots! The album's great all the way through – tight arrangements by Horace Ott, who also plays electric piano on the set, making for a clean, cool 2-keys kind of groove. Titles include "Spear for Moondog" (parts 1 & 2), "Tight Times", "Funky Junk", "Bird Wave", and "Back on the Track". CD

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Some great down-home work from Jimmy McGriff – a session that's a bit less funk-based than some of his others for the Groove Merchant label, but still plenty darn great! The set's kind of a nice link between the straighter soul jazz of McGriff's 60s years, and his return to the format at the end of the 70s – and the group's a quintet, with Ronald Arnold on tenor, George Freeman on guitar, John Thomas on rhythm guitar, and Marion Booker on drums. There's some slight funky undercurrents – especially from Freeman's guitar lines, which have a nice degree of grit – which Jimmy seems to match nicely. Titles include "The Groove Fly", "It's You I Adore", "Jumping The Blues", and "Healin' Feeling". CD

Sunset, Mid 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
After McGriff had become more established as a name on the Soul Jazz scene in the 60s, Sunset pulled together this compilation of some of the best singles and album cuts from Jimmy's days at the Sue label. Most of the cuts here are more raw and bluesy than his later work for Groove Merchant and other labels, and have a good raunchy R&B organ sound to them. 10 tracks in all, all McGriff originals: "Bump De Bump", "Turn Blue", "Sho Nuff", "MG Blues", "There'll Never Be Another You", "One Of Mine", "Kiko", "Broadway", "All About My Girl" and "Hello Betty".

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffGroove Grease ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A nice bit of funky organ work from Jimmy McGriff – a set that's got his famous talents on the Hammond out front of a larger ensemble – but in a way that's very different than some of his albums of that type from the 70s! There's lots of electricity in the mix – electric piano from Horace Ott, bass from Richard Evans, and guitar from Wayne Bennett – mixed with sharp work on horns from Cliff Davis on tenor and flute, Murray Watson on trumpet, and Johnny Beard on baritone – three players who really flesh out the sound! The album's got some excellent stone funky classics – like "The Bird", "Groove Grease", and "Plain Brown Bag" – plus some surprisingly funky readings of standards like "Canadian Sunset" and "Mr Lucky", both made to sound super-nice, thanks to excellent work on bass and drums!

A nice little sleeper from Jimmy – a record that's hiding behind a title and cover that looks pretty corny, but one that features McGriff wailing away on a nice set of shorter tunes, most of which are 60s soul covers, done in that lean clean style he was using a lot at the time! Forget the "Honey" and go for "I Thank You", "I Got The Feelin", "Tell Mama", "We're A Winner", "Respect", and "Chain Of Fools" – all of which are quite nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriffJimmy McGriff Greatest Hits ... CD
Blue Note, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Excellent organ groovers from the great Jimmy McGriff! The set pulls together some fantastic tracks from Jimmy's years at Veep, Sue, Solid State, and Capitol – including many great short funky cuts that haven't really shown up on other reissues before. The fidelity of the set is way way better than other reissues – and the CD is filled with hard wailing Hammond groovers that will blow your mind! Jimmy's touch on the keys was amazing back in these days – filled with loads of straight jazz fire, but also touched with a keen sense of humor that has him throwing in these amazing curve balls on the keys, riffing away in surprising twists and turns that always keep the cuts interesting! Titles include "Criss Cross", "Step One", "Blue Juice", "Black Pearl", "The Worm", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Fat Cakes", "Where It's At", "Cash Box", "Kiko", "The Last Minute", and "Discotheque". CD

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet 70s electric work from Jimmy McGriff – material that's different than his grittier grooves of the 60s, but still plenty darn great! The style's clearly influenced by CTI – as Jimmy's using electric piano as much as organ – and is getting some fuller support in the backings from Brad Baker and a host of great studio players. The sound is still plenty darn funky though – a soundtrack-styled approach that has Jimmy's keyboards soaring over the lush backdrops – still with plenty of rhythm, and elements that include choppy guitar and some nice work from a horn section. Joe Thomas solos a fair bit on tenor and flute – and the whole thing sounds like some nice lost cop show soundtrack! Titles include "It Feels So Nice (Do It Again)", "Please Don't Take Me Out", "Mean Machine", "Pogo's Stick", and "Overweight Shark Bait". CD

Jimmy hits a bit of a CTI groove here – working with larger backings from Brad Baker, but still in a style that's got a heck of a lot of soul, despite the smoothness! There's plenty of great space for solo work on the set, and Jimmy Ponder is especially nice in the format – hitting some warmly chromatic solos that still have plenty of invention too – and which sound very sweet alongside Jimmy's work on organ and keyboards. Other soloists include Hank Crawford and Eddie Daniels, and titles include the funky moogy classic "Tapioca", plus "Outside Looking In", "Dust Pan", "Walkin Willie", "Midnight Boogie", and "Playland".

The album's got McGriff working on electric piano and clavinet alongside the organ – plus supporting arrangements from Brad Baker, in that fuller, Kudu-styled approach to jazz funk that Groove Merchant used strongly in the mid 70s – a slightly smoother sound than before, but still plenty darn great, and definitely filled with more than enough jazz to keep things real! Pat Rebillot plays some additional keyboards on the album – in that funky style he used well at the time – and there's almost a spacey Fantasy Records quality to some of the best numbers here! Titles include the incredible tripped out break cut "Space Cadet", plus "Love Is My Life", "Sweet Love", "Big Booty Bounce", "Red Beans", and "Cakes Alive". CD

Massively funky – and one of Jimmy McGriff's best albums for the Groove Merchant label! The album's follows strongly on the mode of Jimmy's classic Worm album – also produced by Sonny Lester, issued slightly before on the Solid State label. The set's got that stripped-down, hard-n-funky sound that Jimmy used on his best albums from the time – rhythm crackling at the bottom with a really sharp edge, and a lean, clean keyboards soaring over the top in some really mighty solo work – somewhere between James Brown funk and early 70s soundtracks! The drums are great, the tunes are tasty, and Jimmy plays both keyboards and Hammond – with a groove that's always outta site! Titles include the funky "Stump Juice", plus "TNT", "Stretch Me Out", "Pisces", "Cumayon", and "Purple Onion". LP, Vinyl record album

LC, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Jimmy McGriff in a very cool 70s mode – hitting some of the fuller, more soul-based styles that Johnny Hammond and Jimmy Smith were exploring in the middle of the decade – while still also displaying a hell of a talent on the organ as well! The album has extra keyboards from Pat Rebillot and Paul Griffin – which makes for a nice mix of organ and electric piano sounds, plus some occasional moog that's very nicely placed – all backed by a largeish group that has tight horns, and some occasional soul vocals from Al Downing and Denise Wooten. The vocals are often an augmentation of the tunes, and there's still plenty of room for solos by Jimmy in the middle – on titles that include "Tailgunner", "Flexible Flyer", "Sky Hawk", "Grandma's Toe Jam", and "Bullfrog".

The tracks are short and sock-hard – Jimmy wailing on Hammond, over rhythms that have plenty of sharp edges, and lots of nice drum work – all recorded in a mode that's a heck of a lot rawer than some of his other records! The album brings together all the rough power of Jimmy's years at Sue Records with the funkier grooves of his 70s work – and features a killer combo that includes tenor from Fats Theus, alto from Danny Turner, trumpet from Blue Mitchell, guitar from Thornel Schwartz, and drums from both Mel Lewis and Grady Tate. Titles include "The Worm", "Blue Juice", "Lock It Up", "Think", "Heavyweight", and "Girl Talk". CD

Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet funky blues from the team of Junior Parker and Jimmy McGriff – coming together here in a way that's even groovier than some of their previous work! Junior's got a sweet approach to the lyrics that grooves nicely with Jimmy's Hammond – and the set's got some full and soulful arrangements by Horace Ott that really tighten things up nicely – getting past any of the blues cliches that might ruin things, and instead going for that lean groove that McGriff was really hitting at the end of the 60s! There's more of a soul vibe than a blues one going on most of the time – and titles include "Workin", "Inner Light", "Losing Battle", "Drownin On Dry Land", and "It Ain't What'cha Got". CD

Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums ever from Jimmy McGriff – a hard-wailing session that's filled with plenty of cooking lines on the organ, and a few especially funky tracks! The groove here is tight, short, and very sharp – strongly in the mode of other post-Sue sessions by McGriff – like The Worm or other Groove Merchant sides – with a style that's often much more focused than Jimmy's earlier years, and strongly turned towards the rhythms of the tunes! A few numbers are more familiar soul jazz, but these are nicely offset by the harder funk numbers of the record – like the romping, stomping break classic "The Main Squeeze", the totally groovy "The Worm Turns", and the fast-vamping "GMI". The group features Jimmy Ponder on guitar and Connie Lester on alto sax – and other titles include "The Sermon", "Stella By Starlight", and "The Blues Train To Georgia". LP, Vinyl record album

Edna McGriffStart Movin In My Direction – The Bell Recordings Plus – 1954 to 1959 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
A rare set of work from New York singer Edna McGriff – a vocalist who'd recorded more famously with Sonny Til of The Orioles, and with frequent partner, tenorist Buddy Lucas – but who's heard here on a strong batch of sides for the small indie Bell Records! The music ranges from raw R&B to some surprisingly well-polished numbers – with backings by the groups of Sy Oliver, Jimmy Caroll, and others – in modes that show McGriff as a singer strong enough to tackle just about anything that came her way! Our favorite sides here are those which have a pre-soul sort of vibe, but there's others with a more conventional backing group, and a few that have a surprisingly great crossover mode that sits on both sides of the late 50s rock and roll fence. The package is very well done, with full notes in Edna's 50s years, some great photos, and even a discography – and the CD features 29 tracks that include "Oh Joe", "Confidential", "The Fool", "I Can't Love You Enough", "Mr Lee", "I Get The Feeling", "Mambo Baby", "Sad Sad Sad", "Burning Bridges", "Sunday", "How Long Will It Take", and "No Change".

Wynder K FrogShook, Shimmy, & Shake – The Complete Recordings 1966 to 1970 (Sunshine Superfrog/Out Of The Frying Pan/Into The Fire/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Three full albums of romping organ work from Wynder K Frog – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Sunshine Superfrog – a record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe one of the hippest London cats on his instrument at the time! The tunes draw equally from the Hammond soul jazz of artists like Jimmy Smith or Jimmy McGriff, and from the soul instrumental style of the time – particularly the grooves of Stax and Atlantic Records – and the deft work on the keys of the organ show that you hardly need a singer to make these records groove. Titles include "I Feel So Bad", "Blues For A Frog", "Hold On I'm Coming", "Incense", "Feel It", "Dancin Pain", "Mercy", and "Somebody Help Me". Next is Out Of The Frying Pan – a lost Hammond classic from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff organ jazz albums on Sue Records – mixed with maybe a bit of the mod sound of London at the time! Tunes are tight and short, but pack plenty of punch – and the album also features great work on saxes from Chris Mercer and Dick Heckstall-Smith. Titles include "Green Door", "Bad Eye", "Willie & The Hand Jive", "House That Jack Built", "Gasoline Alley", and "Harpsichord Shuffle". Last up is Into The Fire – which has the group really opening up, laying down some wonderfully jazzy and funky instrumentals with a fuzzy Hammond sound that's really great! Although the set was recorded in the UK, the best cuts have a soulful crossover sound that feels like it should have been recorded during one of the Cadet Concept sessions in Chicago at the same time. One cut has vocals, but the best are the instrumentals – like "Into the Fire", "Howl In Wolf's Clothing", "Hot Salt Beef", "Cool Hand Stanley", and "Why Am I Treated So Bad". The set features lots of bonus tracks from singles and other sources – including "Zooming", "Green Door", "I'm A Man", "Henry's Panter", "Baldy", "Dancing Frog (stereo)", "Happy Jack", "Funky Broadway", "I'll Go Crazy", "A Memory Of Bruce", "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", and "We Can Work It Out".

Jake Mason TrioStranger In The Mirror ... CD
Soul Messin', 2018. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Sweet Hammond work from Jake Mason – a keyboardist who definitely loves the sound of 60s soul jazz, but also has a great ear for the soulful instrumental too! The organ lines on the set move nicely between territory of Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff, but also have some of the warmer glow of Booker T as well – on tunes that are well-written little numbers that are mostly by Mason – sometimes with less of the jazz flourishes around the edges that you'll hear on other contemporary Hammond albums – which makes for a nice focus on some of the melodic elements and grooves! The trio features guitar and drums – and titles include "Rib Eye", "Grain Store", "Sunfall", "People Two & One", "Please Please Please", "Candy Smack", and "The Stranger In The Mirror". CD

Jackie MittooJackie Mittoo – The Keyboard King At Studio One ... LP
Universal Sound/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 29.99
Killer funky organ – and 100% Dynamite! Jackie Mittoo is one of the all-time great organists – as essential to Jamaica as Booker T was to Memphis, or Jimmy McGriff was to New York. He's legendary these days as the player who completely transformed the Hammond sound with his unique Jamaican instrumental style during his early years with the Skatalites, and on his later solo recordings for Studio One. This set's probably the first time Mittoo's work has been properly packaged and remastered – and the folks at Soul Jazz have done an amazing job of selecting just the right tracks for such a project. The whole thing wails along with a stone rocksteady groove – with plenty of nice drum parts and funky rhythm bits underneath Jackie's soulful organ. If you dug the label's 100% Dynamite series, you'll really dig this one – and the whole thing's very much in the same vein. Tracks include "Drum Song", "Reggae Rock", "Hot Tamale", "Killer Diller", "Black Organ", "Stereo Freeze", "Wall Street", "Darker Shade Of Black", "Juice Box", and "Killer Diller".

Buddy RichLast Blues Album ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Nothing "blues" about this set – as Buddy Rich is working with some of the best soul jazz players of the Groove Merchant label – on a set that's one of his few small combo albums from the 70s! The vibe is very relaxed and laidback, and even Buddy's tight drumming can't over-hype the sound. Tracks are longish and open – more in the Prestige jazz mode of the 60s than the usual funkier style of the Groove Merchant label – and the sextet features Jimmy McGriff on organ, George Freeman on guitar, Kenny Barron on electric piano, Illinois Jacquet on tenor, and Bob Cranshaw on bass. Titles include "Soft Winds", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "How Long", "Courage", and "Alright". CD

Lonnie SmithThink! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A seminal album from Hammond giant Lonnie Smith – a bold statement that really gives the organist his own identity after some killer work in the combos of Lou Donaldson and George Benson! Lonnie's one of the key flag-fliers of the new style of funky organ jazz – a mode different from the earlier styles of Jimmy Smith or Jimmy McGriff – leaner, cleaner, and often tied heavily to the drums – which, in this case, are handled by Marion Booker Jr, but in a way that recalls some of the Idris Muhammad greatness on other Blue Note albums of the time. The mighty Pucho (of Latin Soul Brothers fame) plays added timbales, and there's also two more conga players – ensuring a tight, yet complex sort of groove – and the frontline features Lee Morgan on trumpet, David Newman on tenor and flute, and Melvin Sparks on guitar. Tracks are long, with complicated rhythms – and soulful yet sophisticated solos to match – and titles include the seminal "Son Of Ice Bag", a great cover of "Think", and the tracks "Slouchin", "Call Of The Wild", and "Three Blind Mice".

James Taylor QuartetGet Organized (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Urban/Polydor (Japan), 1989. Used ... $19.99
Wonderful early work from the great James Taylor Quartet – a killer UK group that emerged out of the London mod and acid jazz scenes of the 80s, then went onto become a monstrously talented funk group in their own right! Taylor's smoking Hammond leads the session, stepping out in some strong funked up grooves that have a classic late 60s soul jazz sound – a bit more Jimmy McGriff than the Johnny Hammond vibe of James' later work – but still plenty great with us, and recorded with a surprisingly faithful ear for the original sound. (Keep in mind that back at the highly-electric time of this set, few records were cut with the warmth of records from the 60s and 70s.) The excellent jazz dance number "It Doesn't Matter" features stellar scat vocals by Cleveland Watkiss – and other tracks include "Brothers Batucada", "Bossa Pilante", "Riding High", "Electric Boogaloo", "The Stretch", and "Grooving Home".

Earl Van Dyke & The Soul BrothersThat Motown Sound ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A heavy batch of Motown soul instrumentals – headed up by Funk Brother Earl Van Dyke! The set features backings that are often very similar to the vocal versions on Motown – but are topped with sweet organ solo work from Earl – who has this lean, mean style that's mighty nice – kind of a Jimmy McGriff groove that really fits the soul of the recordings! Most of the backings are exactly the same ones used for vocal hits, but the use of Hammond really transforms them nicely – making the whole record a sweet popcorn soul version of Motown – almost a bit grittier, with a nice sort of backroom jukebox flavor. Titles include "Try It Baby", "Can You Jerk Like Me", "Money", "Can I Get A Witness", "Come See About Me", and "All For You". CD

✨✧ VariousBlue Break Beats 1 ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
A really wonderful collection of grooves that first came to light in the 90s – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles on this first volume include "Weasil" by Donald Byrd, "Who's Makin Love" by Lou Donaldson, "Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Groovin For Mr G" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Kudu" by Eddie Henderson, "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Move Your Hand" by Lonnie Smith, "Shu Shu" by Ike Quebec, "Oliloqui Valley" by Herbie Hancock, "Your Love Is Just Too Much" by Gene Harris & The Three Sounds, "Blue Juice" by Jimmy McGriff, "Turtle Walk" by Lou Donaldson, and "Chunky" by Ronnie Foster.

VariousFunky Soul Brother – Everything We Do Gonna Be Funky ... CD
Groove Merchant/Octave (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
A really great trip through the Groove Merchant catalog of funky jazz from the 70s – one that's served up by a Japanese DJ duo who clearly have a love for the dopest, trippiest, funkiest electric moments of the label! Every cut here is a gem, and the DJs do an especially great job of picking some of the lesser-known Groove Merchant cuts, particularly those with an unusual instrumental element – then find a way to mix them with a vibe that stretches out the key moments even more – not exactly in a jazz remix way, but maybe with some edits on key cuts that make them sound even cooler than before! The set is one very long non-stop mix – definitely with some cutting and scratching here and there – and titles include "Never Can Say Goodbye" by Rueben Wilson, "Out On The Coast" and "Inner Crisis" by Larry Willis, "Don't Ask Me" by Ramon Morris, "The Bird" and "Let's Stay Together" by Jimmy McGriff, "Coco" and "Mr Mumbles" by Joe Thomas, "Ocean Of His Might" by Mike Longo, "No Trouble On The Mountain" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Sizzle Stick" by Lonnie Smith, and "It's Too Late" and "I Wanna Be Where You Are" by O'Donel Levy.

VariousHammond Heroes – 60s R&B Organ Grooves ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
A great collection of 60s Hammond organ groovers – and from sources you might not normally expect! Given the fame of jazz players on the instrument – like Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff – it's easy to forget how many rock and roll groups were also playing the Hammond in the 60s – clearly inspired by the work of Smith, McGriff, and others – but taking the instrument into a unique pre-fusion world that blended together rock, soul, jazz, and funk! And while much of the groups' work on organ was often overlooked alongside their more famous vocals, this set really corrects that fact by bringing together an all-instrumental lineup – 23 tracks pulled from lost albums and singles from some of the best of the British scene at the time – the cream of the crop of the beat group generation who were so influenced by American soul and jazz! Titles include "Stevie's Groove" by Spender Davis Group, "Jumping Jack Flash" by Wynder K Frog, "Zoom Widge & Wag" by Bobby Graham, "Working Out" by Dave Davani, "Adventures Of A Young Organ" by Ten Years After, "Jive Samba" by Remo Four, "Horses Cellar" by Peddlers, "Zoot's Sermon" by Zoot Money, "Critic's Choice" by Alan Price Set, and "Impressions Of Oliver" by Herd.

LC/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure genius from the B Baker Chocolate Company – a set that's equal parts fusion and soul, held together by these rich arrangements that really send the whole thing home! The album's never too slick, yet has a sense of perfection that matches some of the best soulful fusion dates at Blue Note or Fantasy in the mid 70s – a quality that's especially strong on the vocal tracks on the set – one of which features Lew Kirton in the lead! The players are all totally top-shelf – and include Lonnie Smith and Jimmy McGriff on keyboards, John Faddis and Marvin Stamm on trumpets, and Jimmy Ponder on guitar – and the set's got a beautiful balance that few other records like this can match. Lew Kirton sings on "It's Where You're Coming From", and "Dreamer" features Gene Scott – and instrumental tracks include the funky classic "Snow Blower", plus "Carousel" and "Spirit Level". CD

✨✧ Brian CharretteGood Tipper ... CD
Posi tone, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great Hammond work from Brian Charette – served up in a style that's a bit different than most contemporary organ jazz sessions! The tracks here are sometimes short – like the old soul jazz organ singles back in the 60s – and Charette mixes things up nicely with a few great covers of soundtrack and pop moments – a bit like some Jimmy McGriff album on Sue Records! Yet Charette's also got a much wider range of sounds than McGriff ever did – a knowledge of the Hammond that embraces all the changes from Larry Young forward – worked out with a sweet trio that includes either Avi Rothbard or Yotam Silberstein on guitar, and Mark Ferber or Jordan Young on drums. Joe Sucato guests on tenor on the album's one long track – and titles include "The Kicker", "Good Tipper", "Another Quarter", "Standing Still", "You Only Live Twice", "Up Up & Away", and "Time Of The Season".

✨✧ Bobby ForresterBobby Forrester Organist (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Dobre/Shout (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums of Hammond jazz ever recorded – and a darn funky one at that! Bobby Forrester may not look like a hipster on the cover, but this set grooves like some of the best early 70s work by Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, and Groove Holmes – hitting hard with some really funky tracks that have made the album a must-have with collectors for years. The sound here a lean, mean revision of the Prestige Hammond jazz groove of the 60s – Bobby grooving on organ with just drums by Johnny Kirkwood and guitar by Elijah Williams Jr – all coming together in a totally solid sound that has plenty of funky riffs, nice drums, and soaring organ lines! Given the lean, compact approach to the groove, we might compare Forrester most with Charles Earland at his best – although the album's got a voice and depth that's certainly all its own. Titles include the classic groover "Uncle Funky", a great cover of "Sanford & Son Theme", and the cuts "Blues For Razz", "Don't Misunderstand", and "Funky Fly". CD

Estrus, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mod mod grooving from Iowa's Diplomats Of Solid Sound – a tight little combo that's steeped in the ways of Booker T and Jimmy McGriff – but which also knows how to rock it when they can! The core group's a quartet – with Hammond and Fender Rhodes leading the grooves, plus a bit of bass, guitar, and drums. Added to some tracks are a bit of extra sax and percussion – but mostly, the groove's in a stripped-down organ combo mode that reminds us a lot of the early mod-revival style of the JTQ! Simple, solid, and no-nonsense – with tracks that include "Who's Got The Grady?", "You Can Make It If You Try", "The Cuber Bake", "Ribsticker", "Shadow Of Your Soul", "My Place BBQ", and "Don't Touch My Popcorn".
