I e-mailed Mosaic about this awhile back, and they said a Roach Select was in the works, but that there wasn't enough room to include his albums with Ike Quebec.

"I Got A Woman" is a must-have.

That's true, first and foremost. Also, dig much of Jimmy's late 60's and 70's stuff. Those LPs with Groove Holmes as well. There's just so much. A GREAT place to start is the Blue Note "Best Of Jimmy McGriff."

How's this? Groove Holmes' "Theme from Six Million Dollar Man and other selections" (Flying Dutchman, '75). At least the cover is somewhat amusing, has anyone heard it?

Ehhhh.... it's okay. Kind of a disappointing follow-up to the rollicking Keep That Groove Goin' with Red Holloway from the previous year. The players just seem to be going thru the motions on this one.

what about this cd?

Personally, this is WAY better than "Keep Your Groove Going." That's a good recording too, but it has Gene Ludwig on organ. Lonnie Smith's on "Coast To Coast" and he just nails the shit out of everything as usual.

"Coast To Coast" is in my top 10 organ records of the last 5 years.

Alright, I'm listening to Coast to Coast again, and I stand by my original assessment. I'll happily agree to disagree with you guys on this one; it just does nothing for me.

That's what music is all about. Personal taste. :D

Was perusing eMusic.com and found this:

The Sugarman Three

I've heard of them, since Adam Scone is the organist, but I don't have any of their CDs. Nice stuff! And greazy!

I have a photo here of the once greasiest club in Rochester; The Pythod Room.

Lonnie Smith just about grew up there.

anyone hear of winston walls??

any recs??

The local public library has a CD of his called Boss of the B-3. If only the music lived up to the title (and the self-serving liner notes). Like the Godfather said, he's "talking a lot, and sayin' nothin'"! <_<
