5.0 out of 5 stars Brother Jack is the man February 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
One of the best B-3 jazz cds of all time. This cd contains 2 live lps on 1 cd. Both feature George Benson on guitar and Red Holloway on sax. This was arguably McDuff's classis line up. Every track is a keeper. All the players are given ample room to solo. In addition, part of the cd features Harold Vick on flute, which is unexpected. An interesting note, progressive rockers Wishbone Ash covered the tune "Vas Dis" from this album. "Rock Candy" has become a standard for jazz organ players. This is required listening for all soul jazz fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rewriting the book of organ history ! ! ! July 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't possibly name all the orgnists who came up over the years learning to play by studying stuff off this CD - - Rock Candy, in particular. (I believe that even Joey DeFrancesco is one of them.) - - Featuring a very young George Benson on guitar (yep 'Duff gave him his start), Joe Dukes (the ultimate Jazz Organ Pocket Drummer), tenor saxophonists Red Holiday and Gerald Vick, the directions this album takes, even when its just one 12 bar blues after another (at times) is shocking. - - As the cover points : How many organ groups (now or at the time) were covering Chico Hamiliton and Walt Disney tunes as well as hard grinding organ blues, A REAL GOODUN' being the ultimate anthem... And to boot, you also get to hear Jack McDuff speak (he had a really smooth voice.) - - This is one CD you can listen to over and over and over, and due to the variety, the cleverness of his arrangements and all the feal and energy... it never wears out... NEVER.... for this reason I'd definitely have to put it on the mandatory listening list. LINER notes are great too... age 37 and an overnight hit success... still going strong until his recent passing in his 70's ... Viva Le Duff !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Hammond Jazz! March 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I just really got into Hammond jazz thing when I got a Hammond organ. If your a fan of the organ, then get this album! It's got that great vintage sound to it because it was recorded in 1963 in a smoky jazz club, but still sounds great and you get to hear Brother Jack McDuff talk between songs and sets. The acoustics are great and man he can walk some mean bass lines on the B3! If your a fan of McDuff McGriff and Jimmy Smith of course then I reccomend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its so Great October 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ive bought the LP in the sixties. It was always one of my big favorites all over the decades(!), meantime with many noises and crackle. And now - by accident - I find it available on CD.
Thank you for that.
Jack McDuff and his incredible Hammond Organ Sound is part of my life.

This album flat out cooks. It was one of my first Brother Jack records back in the day and listening to this LP was like love at first sound. However something always sounded fishy about the record but the music itself is off the rails.

What is fishy? The live crowd "ambiance" it's editing and the engineer riding the volume, that's what. Also McDuff's song announcements seem like they are cut and paste too.

I think I read somewhere, years after getting this album and wearing out my CD player with it on repeat that this was not really recorded Live at the Front Room. They were set to record but had a technical problem with the recording of the band but the crowd tracks were okay. So since they didn't get the Front Room performance on tape, they invited some people to the studio and had a separate recording session to get down the music with a dozen onlookers to give the record a live vibe. Finally for the album they Frankensteined the two recordings using the live in studio music but with the Front Room crowd ambiance, phone ringing, waitresses and song announcements. It really is put together roughly with the audience being potted up at awkward times and not really fitting with the music.

While the audience and announcements seem out of place, the music is really great and it is one of my favorite jazz organ albums. If you dig jazz organ or McDuff,you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this record. Plus now they combined this album and the other live album Hot BBQ onto one CD. Hot BBQ is the other great McDuff live album. No excuses, get this album now.
