Brother Jack McDuff Live!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
A retitled compilation of two of Jack McDuff's live albums from the '60s, Brother Jack McDuff Live! is an outstanding album, one of the purest examples ever of quite possibly the finest Hammond B3 organ player in the world. These recordings were made with McDuff's classic lineup: Red Holloway on tenor sax and flute, Joe Dukes on drums, and a young George Benson long before he became a star making formulaic soul-pop albums in the '70s on guitar.

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
A retitled compilation of two of Jack McDuff's live albums from the '60s, Brother Jack McDuff Live! is an outstanding album, one of the purest examples ever of quite possibly the finest Hammond B3 organ player in the world. These recordings were made with McDuff's classic lineup: Red Holloway on tenor sax and flute, Joe Dukes on drums, and a young George Benson long before he became a star making formulaic soul-pop albums in the '70s on guitar. This lineup is arguably the pinnacle of the often-misunderstood subgenre of soul-jazz, capable of mixing funky Booker T. & the MG's-style grooves with rippling, exploratory solos.

His organ playing can seem almost clichéd to the soul-jazz novice, until one realizes that these riffs became soul-jazz clichés because so many lesser players immediately copped his licks. Here, one can hear them from the source, and it's an eye-opening experience.
