    Fortunate to have seen Michaels and Frosty in the early 70's. Out of all the great songs, Green Onions will always be my favorite all time. Booker and the B3 and Steve Cropper with just the right amount of licks.

    My older cousin Mark Leach, aka Muggie Doo, has rocked a Hammond B3 his whole adult life.

    The first one kind of has the Michaels/Frosty thing going at the 6 minute mark.




    At Woodstock 97 also coincidentally? at the 6 minute mark (must be when they let keyboardists have their turn)

    This album was the shizzle in my art college years. A must have at parties! I had the red one as well.

    Seriously some of the best compiltoons ever. And some of the most approachable jazz out there. Whenever someone says they don't get jazz or something similar, I play this album. A lot of people forget that jazz is (or can be) dance music!

    A buddy of mine played bass in a jazz quintet (2 horns) led by a B3, playing this type of music. So much fun.

    So..... Im a bit of a disciple of Samba. Jobim, Gilberto, Nascimento. The tight Samba beat, rhythm chops that bounce.
    King of the B3 Samba Style is Walter Wanderley.

    Dunno if it’s crazy of me to want to keep this thread alive, but I’m loving it! This might be kind of an unexpected source for some of you guys, hope ya lke it:



    @Freshy - you love samba? I love samba! Within my first two weeks of moving to Vancouver I found my dream group at that time and joined it: Brazilian percussion ensemble run by a fantastic musician from Sao Paulo. Was with them for a few years and played all over the region, lots of private functions, street parades and festivals.

    Bossa was in heavy rotation at my parents’ parties when I was a little kid, and it definitely sank in and made a lasting impression. I think a lot of people have unfortunate elevator music associations, which is too bad, it’s so sophisticated and cool and IMO has really stood the test of time.

    There are those of us that can. I'll never be a great (OK, I'll never be mediocre) guitarist, but, I can hold my own on keyboards.
