Good Organ Playing

Jimmy set the bar pretty high for all that have followed in his footsteps. If you love Robert Walter and James Taylor Quartet, you'll love Jimmy McGriff.

Good 60-70's grooving!

Good album. Band 2, 8 and 9 are all goot 'get down' tunes with #2 being a bit more of a 'slow burn' type. Being an ex bass guitar player myself, I noticed the nice walking bass line in #3. #4 and #5 I thought were kinda 'vague'. They seemed more on the order of just some recorded practice with the organ obviously being 'the boss' and the other instruments just there for fill. Nothing the balance like you'd hear in Dave Brubeck trio (for example).

Funky classic sound

This aptly named collection of tracks are as smooth as the fine female's backside portrayed on the album cover. Do yourself a great big favor and send your soul over the top with Jimmy's timeless organ riffs. Also check out his album Feelin' It for more new directions from the immortally funky artist.

McGriff & Co. define B3 Funk on "The Bird" and this entire set just smokes with McGriff cascading funky riffs against the a deeply groovey rythm section anchored by bassist Richard Davis.

Groove Grease - thats what it is!

Pip-t

This is a must for anone who ever appreciated the groovy sounds of organs from -or even in- the 70´s. Pick up the Seventies Cocktail Book, mix yourself a Lilac or even a GinnFizz, light some purple, orange and red candles, gather friends around your livingroom, put this on, and everybody will feel hip and surrounded by a good vibe.

Can't miss

From the buttcrack cover to the sinuous sax solos, Jimmy McGriff and his insistent Hammond couldn't miss with this Greasy Groove.

They Say All Music Guide

This 1971 session finds McGriff continuing to do like so many other jazz musicians of the time: embrace and adapt to the emergence of funk and soul into mainstream music, and recontextualize it in a jazz arena. The results are an unsurprisingly delicious slice of jazz-funk made from the finest ingredients. The superb playing of Richard Davis on electric bass is unquestionably the anchor throughout the album’s nine slices, leaving McGriff and company to follow suit with loose (but not too far out) improvisation that’s as equally relaxing as it is invigorating. While McGriff’s adventurous side is slightly tamed, it’s that willingness to improv and blend together as a cohesive unit that makes Groove Grease such a tasty statement that is consistently fresh with repeated listenings. – Rob Theakston
