Brother Jack is the man
J. E FELL | Carterville, Illinois United States | 02/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best B-3 jazz cds of all time. This cd contains 2 live lps on 1 cd. Both feature George Benson on guitar and Red Holloway on sax. This was arguably McDuff's classis line up. Every track is a keeper. All the players are given ample room to solo. In addition, part of the cd features Harold Vick on flute, which is unexpected. An interesting note, progressive rockers Wishbone Ash covered the tune "Vas Dis" from this album. "Rock Candy" has become a standard for jazz organ players. This is required listening for all soul jazz fans."
Rewriting the book of organ history ! ! !

"I can't possibly name all the orgnists who came up over the years learning to play by studying stuff off this CD - - Rock Candy, in particular. (I believe that even Joey DeFrancesco is one of them.) - - Featuring a very young George Benson on guitar (yep 'Duff gave him his start), Joe Dukes (the ultimate Jazz Organ Pocket Drummer), tenor saxophonists Red Holiday and Gerald Vick, the directions this album takes, even when its just one 12 bar blues after another (at times) is shocking. - - As the cover points : How many organ groups (now or at the time) were covering Chico Hamiliton and Walt Disney tunes as well as hard grinding organ blues, A REAL GOODUN' being the ultimate anthem... And to boot, you also get to hear Jack McDuff speak (he had a really smooth voice.) - - This is one CD you can listen to over and over and over, and due to the variety, the cleverness of his arrangements and all the feal and energy... it never wears out... NEVER.... for this reason I'd definitely have to put it on the mandatory listening list. LINER notes are great too... age 37 and an overnight hit success... still going strong until his recent passing in his 70's ... Viva Le Duff !"
Great Hammond Jazz!

"I just really got into Hammond jazz thing when I got a Hammond organ. If your a fan of the organ, then get this album! It's got that great vintage sound to it because it was recorded in 1963 in a smoky jazz club, but still sounds great and you get to hear Brother Jack McDuff talk between songs and sets. The acoustics are great and man he can walk some mean bass lines on the B3! If your a fan of McDuff McGriff and Jimmy Smith of course then I reccomend this album."
