Ingfried Hoffmann (feat. René Thomas)

Hip Hammond from Ingfried Hoffmann — one of the coolest musicians to ever play organ on the European scene, and one with a resume that includes loads of great soundtrack and easy sessions, plus key work with reedman Klaus Doldinger ! This early session has Hoffmann working in surprisingly soulful territory — hitting the Hammond with a feel that's a mixture of US soul jazz and some of the groovier styles he was working out in the Doldinger combo — all with a really cool tone on the instrument, one that's unlike anyone else we can think of ! Ingfried goes for a really clear, clean touch on the keys — but there's also a bit of echo at the back too — a way of holding onto the notes that makes things almost sound a bit spacey at points, even when there's a punch to his playing. There's also a bit of piano on the session — and other players include René Thomas on guitar, Helmut Kandlberger on bass, and the mighty Klaus Weiss on drums — always a treat on a date like this ! Titles include the killer "Midnight Bossa Nova", plus "Ingfried's Blues", "Jada", "TV Swing", "Soul Twist", "Au Clair De La Lune", and "Love For Sale".
