The debonair commenter and reader Misterarthur, fast becoming our go-to guy for our raging Hammond organ fetish, reminds us of Doctor Lonnie Smith.(very cool website, but it autoplays music)

That is one funky Sikh, bro. I'm down with the attack notes. Not enough sax. Probably because the turban stole the show. Cool.

Ever hear of Larry Young, the Coltrane of the Hammond? Here playing with Elvin Jones, driver of of the Coltrain...

Hi William- Thanks for reading and commenting.

Hi G Bob- Great stuff. I hadn't heard of Larry Young, although Elvin Jones is a fave. The Blue Note records rarely disappoint.

Always lively writing and penetrating insights over at Gagdad Bob's place, peoples.

Cool music, but what I want to know is if his sixth sheep's sick?
