Jermaine Landsberger & Morell - Hammond Eggs (CD)
Release Date: 09/14/10
Many anecdotes and clichés have grown up around the Hammond B3. This is no problem at all for a highly accomplished organ player like Jermaine Landsberger, particularly when he has a guitarist with the same tongue-in-cheekiness at his side: Paulo Morello. The duo has taken up the challenge of freeing the mighty organ from the realm of nostalgia and dusty grooves and, with Hammond Eggs, they have discovered the real thing. This production cleverly links together blues, boogaloo, modern jazz, shuffle, and funk, and--notwithstanding this unconventional approach--the music brings out the true character of the B3 throughout the session.
