5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant piano & B-3 blues album July 26, 2002
By Flame
Format:Audio CD
This album helps you understand the difference between mere 'playing blues' and 'playing the blues'. Gene Harris and Jack Mc Duff (and the other the musicians on the album) play the blues with a great jazzy feel and with a clear love for this great music. Also, the album gives you one of the finest examples of Hammond B-3 playing that I know. In McDuff's playing you really hear the machine working and blowing, especially in the slow and delicate 'You don't know what love is'.
This album is an abslolute 'must have' if you love the blues. I have bought it for myself and I am now buying it for my father!

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous March 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. It features the raunchy jazz organ sounds of Jack McDuff, along with the boogie woogie piano sound of Gene Harris. There also are a few guest singers who are great. There is a super jazzy swingin' vocal arrangement of "Stormy Monday" that just blew me away. I started tapping my feet & clapping my hands & singin' along. Harris & McDuff battle back and forth on their instruments creating a really unique & unusual sound. I have several other organ/piano combo CD's but I'd say, this is the best & my most favorite!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Cure for the Blues March 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Gene Harris is a master practitioner of the jazzy side of the blues. His piano playing is soulful and down to earth, but sophisticated and nuanced at the same time. Jack McDuff's ever-tasteful Hammond B3 adds a healthy dose of funk to the mix. These gentleman build their solos like master craftsman, while avoiding the cliches used by some of their peers. Guest vocalist Barbara Morrison shines on the title cut - if listening to her doesn't put a smile on her face, you better have someone check your pulse! This was a spirited outing for all who participated and that translates into great fun for the listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Down Home Blues! January 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hi! We used to have this on LP. But now-you got it on CD--and that is great! This is truly down home blues! I have quite a bit of tracks that I really will enjoy! Thank you so much for this fantastic CD! I know I will enjoy this one! I like Ko Ko Taylor's 'All Night Long'-I dig Little Milton's--(well I forgot that one,) but it's a slow type song with quite a bit of groove to it! I also enjoy 2 of ZZ Hill's songs 'Down Home Blues,' and 'Bump and Grind'.All of this is sooo groovy!! You know-I really look forward to getting this CD-quite a pack of some good ol' bit of blues! I just want you all to know how deeply grateful I am for having this on CD!! We've been looking for it a long time in the past, but to no success. Now I remember Amazon--my favorite shopping site-you had it--yaaayy! Thank you once more for this--you rock!!
