If you dig The Organ style of Jazz you have put this in your collection next to Jimmy Smith, Baby Face, and Big John Patton.
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.

This is killer stuff, blues based I would say but swings hard. Great hooks , Young George Benson is smoking cool too.Published on May 17, 2011 by Kingsnake
