I've spread the news about the wonderful blog Funky16Corners on this site many times, and if you haven't checked it out, now is the time. The annual "Pledge Drive" is underway, so that they can raise money to keep the music coming to you gratis.
For me, the highlight of the postings on the blog are the "mixtapes" of old jazz-soul that routinely pop up for the downloading. This time its Funky16Corners Presents: Greasy Spoon - Hammond Organ 45s from the Old School, a collection of sensational Hammond B-3 tracks, including selections from all the might players, from Jimmy McGriff and Larry Young to Freddie Roach and Shirley Scott. Check it out, download the mp3, and donate to the cause.
