Due to the strong lineup and the basic but perfectly suitable material, this Jimmy McGriff
CD is well worth picking up. The groovin' organist teams up with David "Fathead" Newman
(heard on alto, tenor and flute), Rusty Bryant
(doubling on tenor and alto), either Mel Brown
or Wayne Boyd
on guitar, and drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie
. Basic originals alternate with such standbys as "I'm Getting Sentimental over You" and "Georgia on My Mind," with everyone playing up to their potential. A fun and swinging session.
