TSOP organ style ! ! !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 07/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes you think Pat Martino and you think a trillion miles an hour trillion notes an hour solos, but then you hear him hooked up with Trudy Pitts and gazoom, he's groovin' and cookin' as well.Philly bred a lot of heavy cooking post-bop Jazz organists... Groove Holmes, Don Patterson, Shirley Scott and later of course Joey D. among them... definitely there was something symbiotic going on between those two... and I guess old Trudy kept the young lion in line.This is enjoyable groove heavy listening... TSOP... the sound of Philadelphia... organ style, and I a fine walk between the lines of straight ahead bop and funky soul Jazz."
The name of the CD's "Pitts and Martino", not "M&P"

"Notwithstanding the carping about Martino's lack of prominence in previous posts, which is immaterial since Pitts is the featured artist here, this cd rocks. As she emphatically states in the liner notes, Trudy is not a Smith/McGriff/McDuff/etc. clone and as such avoids the endless cliches, tasty as they can be, which the former players often resort to. The only drawback is her singing, unless you're a fan of camp, in which case the vocals might actually be worth the purchase price alone. "Spanish Flea"....yeaaaaaah!"
