Pacesetting big band swing and groove The Radam Schwartz Organ Big Band – Message From Groove and GW

Pacesetting big band swing and groove The Radam Schwartz Organ Big Band – MESSAGE FROM GROOVE AND GW:   The player list for organ-meister Radam Schwartz’s pacesetting new big band swing & groove album is far too long to itemize in this review, but you can check it out in the Organ Big Band EPK…

…there’s not a lot on it right now (hint! hint!), but you will (still) want to SUBSCRIBE to the Radam Schwartz Music channel on YouTube, so you can see the new ones he posts… I did – right away.

I first became attracted to Radam’s excellent jazz organ playing when I reviewed him (way back) in issue #92, but I’ll guarantee you’ve never heard organ in a big band setting like you’ll hear on the fantastic “Blues Minor” (samples not available yet, as the album doesn’t officially release until 15 August, 2020)… the horns on this one are super-solid!

If you’re looking for SUPER-HOT swingin’, you’re gonna fall in love (instantly) with Radam’s original tune “Dig You Like Crazy”… you’ll be finger-poppin’ & toe-tappin’ for days (& months) to come on this one… because of it’s 4:07 length, I predict jazz DJ’s all over the globe will be spinning this one constantly.

It was (unquestionably) the down & funky rhythms on the title track, “Message From Groove and GW”, another Schwartz original, that made it my personal favorite of the ten swingin’ tunes offered up for your organ big band enjoyment!

I give Radam and his mates a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, as well as a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00 for this super swinger… that means that it also gets my “PICK” for “best organ big band album”!  Get more information about Radam on his website.                                   Rotcod Zzaj
