THE GEORGE KING ORGAN SOUNDS / THE JOE CORNEY MULTI-ORGAN SOUND [60′ Lounge/Mod Jazz]

The George King Organ Sounds a

 

Cool rare organ-lounge/mod jazz lp on Studio one, UK library label, primarily consisting of music composed by German composers. Have no info on exact date of recording [supposed to be from 60’s] and know nothing about George King and Joe Corney, but album sounds fine enough for Surfadelic. You got ‘happy beat’, ‘swing waltz’, happy samba’, ‘medium beat’, ‘fox trot’, ‘fast swing’, ‘beat’ and ‘happy russian’ tempos, and tune entitled ”Gay Play” [don’t know what they mean, but it’s cool anyway]. Happy organ pop sounds in Super Panoramic Stereo, Dig !!!

THE AFRO BLUES QUINTET PLUS ONE – New Directions [1966]

A mid 60s sextet with a Latin edge, the Afro-Blues Quintet + 1 featured a vibes/sax front line and a rhythm section augmented by congas and timbales assisting the standard piano/bass/drums instrumentation. The group’s albums included political and protest pieces, originals, remakes of standards like “Green Dolphin Street,” religious/spiritual numbers, soul/jazz and R&B hits, plus some challenging tunes such as “3/4-5/4-7-2.” Joe De Aguero on vibes and alto saxophonist/flutist Jack Fulks were the principal soloists, with pianist Bill Henderson, bassist Norm Johnson, conga player Moses Obligacion, and Michael Davis on drums and timbales completing the lineup.

The Afro-Blues Quintet 2nd [and best] slab of Latin flavored Mod/Jazz instros. If you wanna be COOL you gotta dig this rhythm. It’s a Mystic Mambo alright. Dig!!!
