An unsung hero of the Hammond Organ passed away last month, and I regret that I missed calling it your attention. Fortunately, Larry at the very hip blog Funky 16 Corners has a wonderful tribute to Odell Brown.
Odell played the funky soul-jazz that I enjoy so much, both fronting Odell Brown and the Organ-izers in the late Sixties, and as a solo act. He was a sought after R&B session musician, and performed on, and co-wrote, Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing".
Larry says it better than I can, so go to his blog and read the post, and download a wonderful mixed mp3 of Odell classics.
