Matthias Bätzel Trio: A Night Of Blues And Ballads

cover picture JHM 3614

Red Holloway, tenor sax, alto sax
Matthias Bätzel, Hammond B3 organ
Helmut Kagerer, guitar
Michael Keul, drums

Matthias goes "Groove" Holmes. In fact the organ sound of this album resembles the old jazz organ master Richard Holmes. Bätzel himself points out that neighborhood with Holmes' title "Good Groove" which was presented in the 60's by Les McCann and released on Fontana as the first recording of Holmes at all. The comparison of those two recordings is of great interest. The tenor sax was then played by Ben Webster, here by Red Holloway.
A very bluesy CD to be recommended.
