20 Minutes of Jimmy McGriff

One of the all-time giants of the Hammond B-3, Jimmy McGriff sometimes gets lost amid all the great soul-jazz organists from his hometown of Philadelphia. He was almost certainly the bluesiest of the major soul-jazz pioneers, and indeed, he often insisted that he was more of a blues musician than a ...

Re: WITH/WITHOUT A LESLIE

Otto Weiss played the Hammond without a Leslie - he relied solely on the vibrato and vibrato chorus of the Hammond to get his unique sound - a sound I have long admired from the Hammond. There are one or two tracks where a Leslie has been used - but generally he doesn't use them. Do a right-click to...

Re: Actual Live Performances by real Genos users
