Album Review

A long overlooked organist in the tradition of Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff, Hank Marr had a rare opportunity to lead a session on this 1995 Double Time CD; most of his records were cut during 1960-64. With the assistance of tenor-saxophonist Gene Walker, guitarist Kevin Turner and drummer Jim Rupp (all of whom like Marr are both obscure and talented), Marr swings his way through some basic originals and a few standards such as "Emily," "Soul Eyes" and "Never Let Me Go." This is accessible music that is easily recommended to fans of the hard bop organ.

Dude makes the B3 Really Talk

Perhaps one of the most under rated jazz organists of all time. This album is a treat. I've never heard anyone quite like Hank Marr. While many organists have tried to imitate Jimmy Smith or Joey Defrancesco, this guy had a sound of his own. He really uses every bit of sound palet of the Hammond B3, like no other organist I've ever heard. Rest in Peace Hank.

Get all of Hank's stuff!

Hank was my teacher and one of the unsung heroes of the B3 who played up until the end. All of his CDs are stellar. Dig deep into any of his older catalog on the web when you can find the LPs. Anything with Hank's former sidemen. (Gene Walker, Tom Carroll, and Jim Rupp) should be checked out, also.

In the tradition

Hank Marr, just found this great B-3 player. Wish I had known about him long ago. He has not been given credit for his talent.
