Brother Jack McDuff | The Natural Thing

Author of one of the funkiest, most soulful, Hammond B-3 styles of all time, with rock-solid basslines and blues-drenched solos.

AllMusic Review by 

Hammond B-3 groovemeister "Brother" Jack McDuff carried on with his timeless patented boogaloo jazz on The Natural Thing from 1968, but is unfortunately drowned out by the overpowering punchy crunching horn charts of arranger Richard Evans. For that reason, this isn't one of McDuff's strongest dates, but it does contain enjoyable moments sans horns (especially "Funky Guru") guaranteed to please collectors of soulful funky organ. Originally recorded in Chicago for the Cadet label, this session is currently available only as a Japanese MCA import.
