Historic European organ jazz!
Terje Biringvad | Oslo, Norway | 02/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After years of searchin' for this Eddy Louiss LP, I finally found this great CD in Paris in 1990. Eddy Louiss is a true European B-3 master with many great albums under his wings and as a sideman. Most people were introduced to Louiss on the legendary Stan Getz album "Dynasty" (Verve), also with Rene Thomas on guitar. What makes this album special is the combination of Rene Thomas (guitar) and Kenny Clarke (drums) as sideman. Kenny Clarke is at his peak playing in organ combos with likes of Louiss, Lou Bennet and Rhoda Scott and Rene Thomas has always been an imaginative bop guitarist. On this album Louiss plays more in the soul organ / "Jimmy Smith" school than the "Larry Young" approach he had on Stan Getz "Dynasty" album. But Louiss tackles both approaches with great efficiancy in use of the B3 registrations with single line / block chords dynamics. It all kicks off with a fast version of Nardis to a slow down Blue Tempo and then it goes on with speed and power on the remaining tunes - no room for ballads for these three gentlemen! Great recording and balance on the CD, and the B-3 sound stands out."
