Product Description

The Hammond B3 never sounded more imaginative or better than on this new release featuring Tony Monaco...Not only is Monaco a powerhouse performer, so is every musician on this recording... -JazzReview.com TRACK LISTING: 1.Acid Wash 2.White Dude Special 3.Ya Bay BEE 4.Gramps Blues 5.Ode to Brother Jack 6.So May it Secretly Begin 7.Luck Be a Lady 8.Apple Honey 9.St. Thomas 10.Me and Mrs. Jones

On organist Tony Monaco's second album, he's accompanied by his regular group--Derek DiCenzo on guitar and Louis Tsamous on drums. Like its predecessor, Burnin' Grooves, this set places Monaco squarely in the company of such forebears as Jimmy Smith, Lonnie Smith, and Jimmy McGriff. That Monaco has also overcome daunting health obstacles (he survived neuralgic amyotrophy) is a testament both to his personal drive and the magical lure of music. Half the album is Monaco originals, with the rest being a fairly robust parcel of covers--numbers by Sonny Rollins, Woody Herman, Pat Metheny, and others. Monaco steps up to the vocal mic to sing two songs, "Luck Be a Lady" and "Me and Mrs. Jones." A trio of horn players guest, but the classic organ trio is at the heart of the proceedings, and a tight little engine they are. --David Greenberger

I recently got both of The Tony Monaco Trio CDs. Burnin Grooves and Master Chops T. I grew up listening to Jazz Organ as I live close to Philly. Wow, Tony is the new Organ Man! I especially loved Master Chops T because of the variety. He even played the accordion on a blues track. If you havn't ever purchased a Jazz Organ CD, this one you must. Tony's music has a way of bringing you in smoothly and then hooking you with some pretty awesome stuff."So May it Secretly Begin" blew me away. Its' big sounding with just the trio. Acid Wash has some really cool effects and "Ya Bay Bee" takes you back to the 60's. All I can say is you should get turned on to this trio. Both Burnin' Grooves and Master Chops T are first rate and smokin!

Tony has done it again. There are so many good cuts on this CD. My favs are ... well, I like em all! Monaco's rendition of Pat Metheny's "So May It Secretly Begin" is masterful.
It hard to believe that "White Dude Special" was written when he was only 16. The original on Monaco's website has the same flavor but one can certainly see how advanced Tony's chops have developed.
Like the previous reviewer, living close to Philly, I am definitely a B3 fan and Monaco is at the top my list.
There's even something from the 70s for middle agers - "Pick Up The Pieces" has a phat bass groove.
Buy the CD. You won't be disappointed. I own all of Monaco's CD and can't wait for his next release in September 2002.

Track two in the sample list, white dude, is Groove Holmes, from "On Basie's Bandstand." I guess someone messed up while developing this web page. Regardless, that Groove album is excellent, too, and highly recommended.

Of course, Tony is excellent. Local Hammond technician heard him at Cafe 123 here in Nashville, after the 2004 NAMM show... said that Tony brought the organ down to a whisper, and moved him to tears.

I was pretty disappointed with this album. Yes, Tony has some blazing chops, but all he's doing is playing recycled blues licks really fast over and over again. There's no originality to this record and the whole thing just sounds stale.

As Tony Monaco goes, "intimately live at the 501" is a far more musical album.
