Format: Audio CD
"During the opening moments of Hammond Rens, you're told that you're in for music that comes from the heart, "not plastic," and over the course of the next two-plus hours you are treated to a freewheeling organ quartet that does anything but pretend. Featuring organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, saxophonist Michael Blake, drummer Kresten Osgood, and percussionist Anders Provis, Hammond Rens is more about feeling the moment and improvising from the physical, rather than the mental.

Recorded in March of 2002 in live performance at Holbaek Jazzklub and Copenhagen Jazzhouse of Copenhagen (this is a 2 CDs' complete set), the quartet consistently finds the groove of whatever composition it's playing, be it a Lucky Thompson tune or an original, and consistently leaps to new heights from there. No overarching concept, no grand musical statements--simply music that feeds the crowd that feeds the band in a beautiful cycle.

Blake often employs a boisterous tone that is full of excitement. Using a few recognizable phrases from his own repertoire, he lays down solos that sound inspired, never coasting, as sometimes can happen during blowing sessions. His two-and-a-half-minute multi-horn solo intro to Rahsaan Roland Kirk's "Three for Dizzy" develops nicely--and although he obviously bows to the song's originator and structure, Blake sounds unique in how he develops the core of the song, punctuated by Smith's punchy chords. He continues to employ the two-horn approach, and in typical organ trio fashion he lays down some exquisite balladry that leads seamlessly into his tenor solo.
