O’s Notes: Drummer Cecil Brooks III teams up with veteran B3 organist Gene Ludwig. They were inspired by Joe Chambers (d) and Larry Young’s (B3) similar pairing some 30 years ago. Gene has that ballpark organ sound and he works the bass pedals well while Cecil maintains a steady beat especially on “Cute”. If you want to hear the cool jazz club sound centered on the B3, plug this baby in!
