Product Description & Reviews

On this album, silken vocalist Johnny Adams utilizes the large, instantly likable sound of the Hammond B-3 organ, played by the instrument's dean, Dr. Lonnie Smith. Adams cuts through the organ's cloud of sound like a deep-voiced preacher whose words come out sounding like talk but break into waves of song. And in this regard, Adams is extending possibly his number one influence, Percy Mayfield's considerable vision of soul and the blues as well. This CD reveals umpteen ways to explore the mix of Hammond organ and Adams's vocals, those places where the organ fills up the room and Adams's voice booms, warbles, or even chirps through the thick sounds. --Andrew Bartlett
