5.0 out of 5 stars Lord of the Blues Hammond...., 8 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jon Lord found a good blues band and did a few shows with them, one of which is on the included DVD, and also put a record together, with 3 guest singers including Ian Gillan. That was enough for me, so I bought it. Wow! Great blues, with the Hammond sound. The Gillan tracks are great (Over and Over...), but there are bits that don't work as great.... However, with just some small production changes, surely this is the direction IG should take for his solo stuff. You listenin' Ian? No, I didn't think so, and who am I to tell you what to sing?

Your biggest fan, that's who, but you are not the star of this CD/DVD, Jon is. And rightly so. Jon's recent solo stuff is a bit too "serious" for my taste (love Sarabande and Pictured Within), which he admits himself on the DVD. This is no-nonsense blues. Jon, you've given us a taste of your unique and fabulous Hammond sound again, thank you (watch and listen to the solo on Green Onions and tell me if you are not also mesmerised). Your next solo work could be Blues to Rock in styles. I don't know, get RB along for a track or two? Gary Moore? Singers to include IG of course, DC possibly, Plant??? Hey, can't I dream a little?

Back to the Hoochie Coochie Men. A solid Down Under blues band- I like the Tim Gaze, the guitarist/singer a lot and some of you will know of Bob Daisley on bass (Ozzy, Rainbow). The drummer is fine and the harmonica player is great too. I could easily see this band many times, even without his Hammondness. No wonder they were chosen. If you like Blues, Deep Purple, Jon Lord, the Hammond sound, in any combination, you will not be disappointed. If you go to the band's website, you can get taster's of the CD and the DVD. But if you have a nice big screen, a good audio system connected, just get the pizza and beer out, sit back on the sofa, switch off the lights and you are off.......

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lord of the Hammond organ, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is worth buying for the DVD alone which was filmed in a small club in Australia. Jon Lord plays Hammond organ throughout showing the influences from his early days as a musician. As he says in the introduction to the DVD it's been a long time since he's played straight ahead 12 bar blues. If you love Hammond organ playing, Jon Lord, and the blues this one is for you.

Jon tells stories from his early days and is in a good humour throughout. He is a talent that will be missed. Jimmy Barnes makes a guest appearance and we have Bob Daisley on bass. This appears to be exactly the same DVD Jon Lord Live at the Basement [DVD+CD]

This review is from: Danger White Men Dancing (Audio CD)
This is a record which is extremely vital. I actually have purchased several CD's of the musicians after I bought this CD.
