Item Description
Along with the likes of Charles Earland, Dan Fogel,
and Larry Young, Jimmy McGriff represented a
new wave of eclectic, and highly prolific soul-jazz
organists to emerge during the 1960s and 1970s.
Unlike his contemporaries however, McGriff
as often been unfairly forgotten in the annals of
jazz history, despite being highly acclaimed among
critics for his creative vitality, his deftness in
adapting to the fusion of genres, and his distinctly
smooth and polished play-style. Nonetheless,
he maintained a strong cult following throughout
his career, and became venerated for his work
with the Hammond B-3 organ in his hometown
of Philadelphia.
1971's Groove Grease is a prime example not just
of Jimmy McGriff's skills on the jazz organ, but of
his versatility as an artist. A largely improvised
session that serves as a seamless transition from
his classic hard bop sounds into the jazz-funk
sounds of the 1970s, which were growing in
popularity. Alongside a collective of session
musicians, which included heavy-hitters like
Horace Ott on electric piano, Everett Barksdale and
Wayne Bennett on guitar, and Richard Davis on
bass, McGriff applies a funky sheen to a selection
of jazzy covers and originals on Groove Grease.
Features his take on compositions by
Henry Mancini, Eddie Haywood, Sammy Fain, and
many more.
