Billy Hawks sings and plays organ, with a groove that’s in between jazz, blues, and deep soul. He’s fronting a trio that includes a young Ivan “Boogaloo Joe” Jones on guitar, and the group plays a few instrumentals with some excellent organ/guitar interchange. Some of the stuff on here’s a bit too bluesy for our taste, but there’s some nice tracks that have a good raw R&B organ groove to them.
