Jackie Davis- Hi-Fi Hammond
Okay, this record is in pretty bad shape (skips some, crackles a lot), but if you saw this in the $1 bin, all scratched up, wouldn't you be willing to take the $1 gamble? I'm very glad I did.
I wasn't surprised to see his name on the "Organs In Orbit" (Ultra-Lounge) tracklist, there's no way this guy couldn't have been on that compilation.
Great lounge instrumentals. Feel like a million bucks while getting boozed up and smoothed over.
Plus the liner notes make me miss the days of the back cover write-up.
Jackie on Hammond, Ernest L. (Fats) Clark on drums, and the "guitar etchings" of Irving Ashby.
Great (scratchy) stuff (smooth).
