The Good Lawdz – A Lil Sumthin’ Sumthin’

Jimmy Smith – New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 30, 1994

The Good Lawdz, A Lil Somethin’ Somethin’

Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the blues, for you.

The Good Lawdz, Run In The Night

All right now, it’s The Good Lawdz playing “Run In The Night”. Kicking us off we heard the title track from their new album, “A Lil Sumthin’ Sumthin'”. The album is all originals by their guitarist, Slikk Tim, and organist, Yoann Turpin. Swing drummer Yvan Keller fills out the trio. They take their gospel origins right into hard-bop, funk, and blues while bringing the organ trio to the present day. Fantastic sounds from The Good Lawdz.

The Hammond B3 organ with it’s rotating Leslie speaker cabinet has become a fixture in jazz, blues, and gospel music. Since the organ has a pedalboard played by the feet and two upper keyboards the organist can handle bass, chords, and melody, all in different voices. The B3 trio also includes drums and another soloist, usually guitar or saxophone.

Now here’s The Good Lawdz again doing “Datpiff”.

Jimmy Smith, Midnight Special

Now that’s what I’m talking about, Jimmy Smith, the Father of the B3 playing “The Midnight Special” at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on April 30, 1994.
