A long overlooked organist in the tradition of Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff, Hank Marr had a rare opportunity to lead a session on this 1995 Double Time CD; most of his records were cut during 1960-64. With the assistance of tenor-saxophonist Gene Walker, guitarist Kevin Turner and drummer Jim Rupp (all of whom like Marr are both obscure and talented), Marr swings his way through some basic originals and a few standards such as "Emily," "Soul Eyes" and "Never Let Me Go." This is accessible music that is easily recommended to fans of the hard bop organ. ~ Scott Yanow
