"This album feels like a fairly equal collaboration between Edwards and erstwhile organist Gerry Wiggins, who turns in a pretty witty performance. He doesn't have the hands-and-feet skills of a Jimmy Smith, but he does funny stuff with the keyboard, wringing the Hammond for what it's worth for various sounds that evoke everything from greasy juke joints to skating rinks and carnivals. The album swings like mad, with Ray Charles' former drummer and bassist Leroy Vinnegar, whose presence adds something lacking from the usual bass-less tenor-and-organ combos of the early 1960s. As for Edwards, well, he himself commented in the liner notes to another album that he always picked up his horn to PLAY, even if he were playing behind the girls in a burlesque house. And, as usual, Teddy turns in another seemingly effortless performance. There's no high artistry here but, as with many another Teddy Edwards record, you'll find yourself throwing this music on far more often than you might some more highly-regarded jazz album. It wears well."
Never an jazz organ was recorded in so high-fidelity sound !

"The original Lp was released on 1962 and the musicians are:
Teddy Edwards : tenor saxophone
Gerry Wiggins: ORGAN
Leroy Vinnegar: bass
Milt Turner: drums
Here Gerry Wiggins doesn't play habitual piano, but the Hammond Organ recorded in High Fidelity sound that makes it very realistic.
These tracks are fantastic and if you are an organ jazz fan or simply a jazz fan, you cannot loose this records !!!!
Enjoy it !!!!
