2019 Japanese reissue


"Freddie played the Hammond B3 organ in the 60’s golden age of soul jazz organ. Comparison with Jimmy Smith is inevitable, being such a dominant force in this style of jazz. So when the needle bit the groove, there was a sense of relief this was not going to be another death-by-Hammond bravura performance. Eschewing the relentless attack of too much of Jimmy Smith, Roach cooks with  a blues and gospel swing, building up a laid-back groove with plenty of space to stretch out. He is quite capable of stabbing the Hammond keys at the right time and place, but the addition  of brass to the ensemble on three tracks adds welcome texture and interest, with Hank Mobley in particular  a real highlight, picking up on the soulful groove in his solos. More Mobley is always good news, and Mitchell swings happily too."
