Album Review

Thompson, Chester – “Powerhouse” – [Black Jazz]

Cousin Mary   5/24/2010   CD, Jazz

Hammond B-3 organist Chester Thompson recorded these tracks for Oakland’s now legendary Black Jazz label in 1971. He went on to play with Tower of Power and Santana.

A departure from the usual B-3 jazz combo, this group is organ-sax-trombone-drums, with the trombone adding a very special touch. Great jazz funk, separation of bass and treble on the organ makes for a rich sound.
