for those who like it funky,
This review is from: The Worm (Audio CD)
An awesome thirty five minutes of funky organ. Jimmy McGriff knows how to get things cooking,his full, belligerent style keeps you constantly entertained
"Keep Loose," is just great when Blue Mitchell's swinging trumpet comes in half way through accompanied by the pounding bass of Bob Bushnell.
"Heavyweight," is a more typical Jazz composition but the trumpet really makes the track skip along beautifully. "Think," bounces along; the sax of Danny Turner and McGriff working off each other seamlessly. McGriff delivers a fiery Jimmy Smith style ranging solo on,"Lock it up." "Girl Talk," shows the band are just as adept on more subtle pieces, all instruments moulding together at the end for a barnstorming finish.
This is a hidden gem from The Blue Note rare groove series.What surprised me is the natural fluency that this band seemed to have together. If you like it funky you need to get your hands on this, you won't be disappointed. There's never a dull moment
