Fans of vintage Hammond organ and funky drums, meet Mook Loxley. Inspired by Jimmy Smith, Loxley mines his Hammond for soul gold, whether on his own tunes (the upbeat “Freedom”) or covers (a soulful take on Rihanna’s “Umbrella”). Loxley also plays drums and has his grooves down, from James Brown funk to Idris Muhammad swing. But this record is all about the organ, and it’s the driving force on all the tunes. Loxley creates a vibe and sound that feels both retro and fresh for a unique slice of organ jazz. Tasty!
