Product Description:

Personnel: Larry Young, Jr. (organ); Joe Holiday (tenor saxophone); Thornel Schwartz (guitar); Jimmie Smith (drums).
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Engelewood Cliffs, New Jersey on August 2, 1960. Originally released on New Jazz (8249). Includes original liner notes by Dale Wright.
Digitally remastered by Phil De Lancie (Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
Organist Larry Young was 19 when he made this, his debut recording. Although he would become innovative later on, Young at this early stage was still influenced by Jimmy Smith, even if he had a lighter tone; the fact that he used Smith's former guitarist, Thornel Schwartz, and a drummer whose name was coincidentally Jimmie Smith kept the connection strong. R&B-ish tenor Joe Holiday helps out on two songs, and the music (standards, blues and ballads) always swings. Easily recommended to fans of the jazz organ. ~ Scott Yanow
