Nice. Our national motto in Québec is "Je me souviens", it's a bit in the same spirit.

Reuben Wilson on organ, Grant Green on guitar, Idris Muhammad on drums.  Jazz doesn't get more laid back, fun, and soulful than this.

Hmm. Nice!

 

Honestly, though, if there are no B3s in Heaven, I'm going to be very disappointed.

If you like this, try Georgie Fame, and Barbara Dennerlein.

I've heard a few songs by Fame, never heard of Dennerlein.

 

For a few years now I've been getting really into the soul jazz tradition of America in the 60s to early 70s.  No disrespect to those European artists, but the tinge of African-American church music tradition that seeps into soul jazz performances (in addition to the influences of bebop, blues, and funk) make it irresistible to me.

Been a jazz kinda morning.

 

Moved on to cool-as-ice urban vocal jazz
