1974 Groove Merchant
One of the grooviest albums ever from Jimmy McGriff -- a hard-wailing session that's filled with plenty of cooking lines on the organ, and a few especially funky tracks! The groove here is tight, short, and very sharp -- strongly in the mode of other post-Sue sessions by McGriff -- like The Worm or other Groove Merchant sides -- with a style that's often much more focused than Jimmy's earlier years, and strongly turned towards the rhythms of the tunes! A few numbers are more familiar soul jazz, but these are nicely offset by the harder funk numbers of the record -- like the romping, stomping break classic "The Main Squeeze", the totally groovy "The Worm Turns", and the fast-vamping "GMI". The group features Jimmy Ponder on guitar and Connie Lester on alto sax -- and other titles include "The Sermon", "Stella By Starlight", and "The Blues Train To Georgia".
