Overview

Recorded six months before organist Charles Earland's death, this date finds "the Mighty Burner" still in excellent form. Although many of the titles (six of which are Earland originals) performed by his group refer to religion, the music swings in a hard-charging secular way, with only "Stomp!" having some spoken word by Earland. The organist sounds as powerful as always, both Eric Alexander and Michael Karn have some fine tenor solos, and there are also spots for trumpeter James Rotondi and guitarist Bill Boris, with drummer Greg Rockingham swinging steadily in support. This set is easily recommended to soul jazz/hard bop collectors, as are virtually all of Charles Earland's recordings.
