Synopsis

Album Description
We are truly in the midst of a Jazz Organ Renaissance... The soul-jazz phenomenon of the seventies is being rejuvenated by today's 'Acid Jazzers' and authenticated by real players like Reuben Wilson... i.e., those who were there at its inception. The release of Jazzateria's ORGAN DONOR represents an important synopsis of this music. It gives us a framework through which we can view all that went into the original sound... identifying those elements of the music that attract the young musicians and producers of today and validating it's re-emergence in today's music market. Reuben takes us on a tour of Hammond Organ Soul Jazz as only he can do... making the music fresh and giving it his own seal of approval. Band Members: Robin Macatangay (g), Bruce Flowers (k), Melvin Butler (ts), (as), (s), (f), Chris Parks (b), Ricardo Rodriquez (p), Adrian Harpham (d), Donny Mcaslin (ts)& (f), Jason Forsythe (trb), Kenny Rampton (t), Saundra Williams, Starr Adkins (v) Produced by Chris Parks & Preston Powell for Jazzateria, Inc.

Reuben Wilson Plays Reuben Wilson
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 06/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The vast majority of grooves on this album are remakes of his classic stuff (mostly out of print) only with a bass player. Despite the "b" word, this is still a majorly juiced up funk album. The earlier versions may have been a bit grittier, these however, kind of bring things up to date, keeping the funk essence but with a more danceable edge. Funkier organ albums have been made (see Lonnie Smith LIVE AT CLUB MOZAMBIQUE, McGriff ala Funkiest Band in The Land, Funk Inc. Leon Spencer, Charles Earland's Black Talk, The Counts etc.) however, along with some of Galactic's grooves, this is probably one of the funkiest new organ albums to come out within the past 20 years, therefore, I'd say, go out and git it..."
Funky, subtle, brilliant ...

"This album is one of the few that gets better with repeated listening. Wilson is a very understated, non-flashy player, who rarely goes in for the kind of "how did he do that?" licks that typifies, say, a Jimmy Smith. Wilson plays fast every now again, just to show that he can, but most of the time he allows his wonderful phrasing, taste, and, above all, his timing to do the work.
The whole band is great from beginning to end, with everyone leaving space for everyone else to work. This has become one of my favorite B3 organ records over the last couple of years. The funkiest, most syncopated organ recording in a long time."
Beautiful grooves...

"This is tight, good, head boppin' music to listen to any day. And it's not just that pure jazz... it has a bit of pop that everyone will enjoy."
