I have the old CD of this (from the 80s I believe) and I know they made a new one in the 90s and now here's another one that has "bonus tracks" and stuff. What gives? Great record, though.
Language filter? We don't need no stinkin' language filter!!!

Groove Holmes is the shiznit! He started out on organ... he didn't switch over from piano, so there's something about his playing that is different from everyone else. Number one, his basslines are so solid and swinging and he was an absolute monster on the pedals. Any of this recordings from the 60s are gems.
Check out some of Bill Heid's records, too. He's the best kept secret in jazz organ. I can't believe how much press Tony Monaco has gotten and Bill is still so obscure. Don't get me wrong, Tony is a great player, but Bill Heid is a fantasic player too and composes some really memorable songs.

Has anyone heard this disc? The organist is Dan Trudell, who I've never heard of and it features Clyde Stubblefield on drums. Does that mean it's all funky!?
There's a nice series of videos by BT Productions. They feature Bill Heid (one of my favorite organists) among others. It's a nice series that really teach you the basics of the instrument, from how to turn the thing on, to standard drawbar settings, to licks and basslines. Highly recommended for the beginner.
Other than that, I would say listen to all the Jimmy Smith you can. That's the starting point, IMO.
Yeah, this software is sweet. My server dude turned me on to it. If you guys would really like to make this a new home, I can set up as many forums as you want. Just let me know.
Wow! This place is swell! I hope all my friends come in and rock the casba. Post away, fellow organissimo fans, BNBBers and neighbors and stuff.
ps. Joe Gloss is way cool!
