Top 10 Jazz Organ Trios #4

Jack McDuff/George Benson

Live – Prestige Records. If I remember correctly George Benson was 18 or 19 when he joined McDuff’s band. Everyone is on fire, swinging hard and so greasy from beginning to end. It goes without saying Jack McDuff and George Benson are first class all the way.


Don Patterson/Pat Martino

Don Patterson Legends of Acid Jazz Vol 2. This is a compilation and reissue of Don’s various recordings. Don Patterson and Pat Martino together is truly a match made in heaven. Their bebop lines, rhythmic comping, and relentless intensity were unmatched. I would give anything to hear these two together live. 


Jan Hammer/John Abercrombie

Timeless – ECM Records. Along with Tony Williams‘ “Lifetime” band, which featured Larry Young on organ, John Abercrombie’s 1975 release “Timeless” demonstrates how the organ and guitar complement each other in different genres. This recording is considered more fusion and not straight ahead. Everyone is pushing the envelope for sure!         


Larry Goldings/Peter Bernstein 

As One – Palmetto Records. The chemistry between these two has always been a special one.  They always get their musical point across while never wasting a note. Obviously, there is a trust these two musicians share which allows them to take the music anywhere they want to with ease.
