• Various Artists - Night Sounds - The Genesis of Soul/Jazz Organ Combos

The Most detailed CD exploration yet into the early 60s rise of Jazz organists featuring the greatest exponents of the genre: Jimmy Smith; Jimmy McGriff; Brother Jack McDuff; Booker T and many others!

Includes the defining hits like 'Walk on the Wild Side', 'I Got a Woman' and of course 'Green Onions'.

One of the greatest things about this most popular sub-genre of jazz is how fresh most of the records still sound over fifty years after they were recorded.

Many of these songs were covered by British bands during the blues boom and the genre was an important element in the emerging Mod movement.
